Excellent read. Love the Martin Beck character, and the way he works carefully towards solving the crime.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOTHING NEW EMERGES ABOUT DIANA, 26 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Little in this book which was not already known about Diana. I became rather bored with what seemed to be repetitive stories about her gilded life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFULLY WRITTEN ACCOUNT OF AN EXTRAORDINARY FAMILY, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent book, expertly written. The scope of the book is astonishing and the wide ranging explanations of the political and social times is enlightening. It details the characters of George III (and those of his immediate predecessors), Queen Charlotte and the extraordinary and often difficult relationship they had with most of their children, especially with the Prince of Wales. The Hanoverian dynasty, right up to and including George V, never seemed to have a good relationship with their heirs, possibly with the exception of Edward VII. And the template seemed to have originated with the first three Georges. A strange family indeed! But a wonderful story.

Her survival in war time Berlin is incredible, but I really did not like the rather stilted style in which it is written.

4.0 out of 5 stars A REMARKABLE WOMAN AND HENRY VIII'S MOST INTELLIGENT QUEEN, 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting look at the last and most intelligent wife of Henry VIII. She deserves to be better known, and Linda Porter has accomplished this in her book on the Queen's life.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN INFORMATIVE LOOK AT VICTORIA, QUEEN, DAUGHTER, WIFE AND MOTHER, 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Ridley has a direct and refreshing style of writing. It is an objective 21st century look at the 19th century queen, and whilst her information on Victoria is not new she nonetheless analyses various aspects of her life to give a greater understanding of the woman. This is particularly relevant in her relationship with Albert, and how she developed into her own woman after his death.
