5.0 out of 5 stars Diana, 4 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Diana (Kindle Edition)
I have read several biographies on Diana. I think that Sarah Bradford is without doubt the most enjoyable!

I am a great admirer of Diana, the transformation of 'Shy Di' into the extraordinary woman of substance is something I will never tire of reading about. Although her story was ultimately a tragedy, her determination to overcome adversity and confront injustices are an inspiration to me; hence my passion for Diana.

Despite this, I think that Bradford's account is without doubt the most balanced I have read. Perhaps this may be because it was written a decade after her death and emotions do not run as high as during her life-time when Diana and Charles were embattled in the 'War of the Walses'.

Bradford depicts Diana as a person, acknowledging her qualities and also short-comings. She also discusses her marriage without emotion and analyses its break-down without pointing fingers and allotting blame entirely to one party (it takes two hands to clap after all, and nothing happens in isolation).

A really enjoyable read for Diana fans and those new to Bradford's writing and the subject of Diana!
