5.0 out of 5 stars Truth is stranger than fiction
Telling the story of the Queen in an hour is a challenge but this book is well written and does what it says on the tin, which is refreshing. If you are sick of the nauseating gush of the Jubilee celebrations and want to (briefly) know more of the real story of this remarkable woman, this is the kindle book for you. The sisterly tensions, the at times difficult marriage,...

2.0 out of 5 stars Description is inacurate
I was reading the blurb to see if this book would be of interest and I noticed a glaringly obvious mistake. The Queen's coronation occurred in 1953, not 1952, as stated in the product description. If they can't get this right then I fear for the accuracy of the rest of the books content. If anyone does read this, please let me know if its worth purchasing.

This review is from: The Queen: History in an Hour (Kindle Edition)
Telling the story of the Queen in an hour is a challenge but this book is well written and does what it says on the tin, which is refreshing. If you are sick of the nauseating gush of the Jubilee celebrations and want to (briefly) know more of the real story of this remarkable woman, this is the kindle book for you. The sisterly tensions, the at times difficult marriage, the errant children and their (deeply) flawed spouses, is real life in full view of the world and far more compelling than any "reality" TV show. I shed a tear at various points and came away even more impressed with HMQ, and the sheer force of will and self discipline it has taken, against all the odds, to keep the House of Windsor (or Saxe Coburg-Gotha ) and the monarchy alive.

It does what it says on the tin - a good, basic rundown of the life of Queen Elizabeth II.

A good series of books. Will keep returning to read more. Am dedicated to the Royal Family as the country's example setters and envoys. The book cheered me up.

Bought for school project. Just right. All the pertinent facts that we needed without getting bogged down. A few pictures would have been nice. Have gone on to purchase more in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Readable snapshot of the Queen's life, 12 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Queen: History in an Hour (Kindle Edition)
This is a really good value read on the life of the Queen. It focuses a lot on her early life and the changes within the royal family over the years. Unfortunately there are quite a few grammatical/editing mistakes in the ebook which is disappointing.

This review is from: The Queen: History in an Hour (Kindle Edition)
This was enjoyable light reading with a little history of the Royal family without going to deeply into all the tragedies of recent years
