Greg King is an author who just knows how to write books and how to tell a story. His style of writing is entertaining, but not shallow; his books have a great flow and get to the main points without a show of doubt.

"Twilight of Splendour" is no exception. He takes Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee as the starting point and climax to tell the story of the Queen's reign and rule and how she became such an extraordinary monarch. As there are so many books on Queen Victoria and her reign, covering every aspects from the most personal to the most political. Therefore, it is pretty difficult to write a book which gives the reader a new approach and perspective. And indeed, the information is not really new and if you have read about Queen Victoria before most of it will be familiar to you. But Greg King puts this overflow of available information together in a great manner creating an interesting and revealing picture of Queen Victoria, her family and her court. I enjoyed it a lot and it gave me some new perspectives and ideas how to view Queen Victoria and her family.

Must have mad to purchase this book it was not at all as expected and written in a very dour way. I was not impressed and it will probably find it's way to the local charity shop
