This review is from: King Edward VIII (Paperback)
I only read biographies, and am very selective with the subject matter. I was slightly daunted when I saw the size of this book, as I was not convinced that it would be interesting enough to warrant the time and effort necessary to read it. I could not have been more wrong. This is an excellent book, one of the best I have read. The author gives an extremely detailed and unbiased insight into the life and character of the man who is only really known as the king who abdicated for love. I found the whole book engrossing, which I had not expected, and was always reluctant to put it down. The impartial yet meticulous style of the author leaves the reader free to form their own opinions about this infamous royal, but provides a huge amount of information to help make this possible. You do not need any real interest in royalty to enjoy this book. It is a fascinating, well written look at a man who changed history. Well worth the effort !!
