3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, 3 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Diana - The Last Word (Hardcover)
Princess Diana is properly one of the most known personalities worldwide. Her life and death are "known" to most of us. She has a a very unique hold on the public's imagination and the interest in her is still there. The on-going investigation into her death and of course the recent wedding of the PoW all triggered new interest in the late Princess.
"Diana: The Last Word" builds on that interest but it does not add new dimension on how one could or should view Diana. The author is one of the many confidents. A great part of the book is devoted to describing the author's closeness to the Princess and "trashing" other confidents. This is really annoying and not particuarly nice to read.
Diana Princess of Wales will remain an unique and complex personality, a woman who gave a lot, a woman who suffered a lot, a woman who made a difference and opened new avenues, a woman who was not easy, a woman who was properly not the right consort for the PoW (nor he for her) and whose legacy will be seen only really if her son Prince William acceeds to the throne.
This book is not the last word on her. It only gives certain elements.
I suppose one needs to wait a few more years till a biography will be written that cover all the aspects of her life and will do justice to this unique personality. Till now it is still "Diana camp" versus "Anti-Diana-camp". I hope one day one could think and write in different categories.
