Format:Hardcover
At first I was dubious about reading this book, suspecting it to be yet another text riding on the waves of media sensationalism for profit. I was pleasantly surprised.
This is no gossip plug. Rather it is a somewhat unforeseen account of Diana's life, written with due sensitivity and respect. Using some of her closest confidents, this book exposes a very different image of Diana to the one many of us have gained from media representation, particularly in accounts leading up to her death. It not only highlights the context behind some of the much publicised pain that Diana experienced in her life, but also shows how, despite all, this woman was able to maintain some strengths. What a terrible shame that, being happy with the man she loved was made so difficult by her fame, and as things could have become easier she had to meet such an untimely end.

First, not so much MY review, but what the rest of the world is already saying about the book: 'Sensational' ...'authoritative' ... 'definitive' ... 'the most sensational royal book of the year' (Mail on Sunday - Britain). 'Book Shock in England' (Paris Match - France). 'Explosive' ... 'Sensational' ... 'bombshell revelations' (New Idea - Australia).
The book tells the story of the last few years of Diana's life. Using first hand testimony from many of Diana's close friends and confidantes, including some who have never spoken before, it allows us to get to know Diana as a real person. Those who have read it say they have completely re-assessed their opinion of her - and they mean for the better. Diana comes out of the book really well; a three-dimensional person facing unique and awful challenges, but who somehow survives. By the end of the book you begin to understand how she moved from being a meek bulimic (my words) to a strong woman who was able to change the policy of powerful governments (the Land Mines campaign). A large part of the reason was the strength she gained from her two-year relationship with a Pakistani heart surgeon, Dr Hasnat Khan. This is a story that has never been told in any kind of detail before. According to one of Diana's confidantes, the Indian cricketer - turned politician Imran Khan, Diana told him she was very much in love with Hasnat - 'He was the Man!'. The book then reveals for the first time the truth behind the famous 'Kiss' pictures, which were splashed over the front pages of the world's newspapers only weeks before her death. The pictures had led the world to believe that she was in love with Dodi Fayed, the man who died with her in the tragic Paris crash.

5.0 out of 5 stars compelling read 7 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book has given me the greatest insight into Diana as a person. I feel I have been told the truth about one chapter of her life. Kate Snell's journalistic perception of what the reader would find compelling is outstanding. Many people have commented "have we not heard enough about Diana?" or "do we not know everything there is to know about her?" This book defies both arguments. If more publications like the standard of this one emerge then people will be given an accurate insight into Diana's private persona. I agree with the author that Diana was only beginning to embark on the most positive stage of her life. This book has brought to history the core essence of her learning curve, on how to truly give and receive, the love she always sought.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Different Perspective! 6 Jan 2004
Format:Paperback
Most of the Diana books I have read have been complimentary on Diana to the point where they reveal nothing but the authors admiration of her. Kate Snell seems to have approached Diana from a perspective of being totally honest and, therefore, revealing the human aspects of Diana without her own personal opinions clouding the facts. In places this book is so honest about the human side of Diana that it reveals her behaviour which could at times be cruel, selfish and calculating. In contrast, I found the Paul Burrell book quite cloying, clouded, one-sided and it revealed very little! The story of Diana and Hasnat is probably one of the greatest love tragedies of all time, but little was known of it until now. Dodi has been given far too much credit as being her 'last love' and this book totally blows that claim out of the water. Until now, nobody probably realised that Hasnat was such an important figure in Diana's life, mostly due to the fact that he is a private man who has courted no publicity whatsoever since her death. One thing this book does make you think is that Hasnat, wherever he is now, has probably had to live with a massive burden of guilt since Diana's death. It seems 100% certain that, had Hasnat not ended the relationship, Diana would never have been in Paris with Dodi that night.

Format:Hardcover
This is the most sensitively written book so far about Princess Diana, showing her as a complete and whole person seen through the eyes of her different friends. This tells the story of her last love, Dr. Hasnat Khan, a heart surgeon and a great man, whom most people will never have heard of, but who gave Diana true happiness in the last two years of her life. This book is 100% factual. Dr. Khan was Diana's last love with whom she found this pleasurable experience reciprocated for the first time in her life without any affectations.
This is definitely a book to be read by all seeking the truth about Diana's final years and who want to read the detailed facts of one of the greatest love stories kept under wraps until now.
