I would have given this book 5 stars as it was very well written and full of interesting information/comparisons about the six Cunard Queens as you would expect from the title. It also contained lovely photographs. However for some reason which I found disappointing, the publisher chose to use a smallish format size for the book. This topic really merited being given a much bigger book to do justice to the author's writing and the photographs, many of which were just too small to illustrate the details adequately. The font size was also too small and made reading a bit of an effort-OK i can get glasses with stronger lenses but as these are not usually necessary that will not be an option I am taking up. At £16.99 it isn't exactly a bargain. If money is the issue then increasing the price slightly and giving the book the proper treatment would be a better option in my opinion.
