4.0 out of 5 stars Admiring portrait of the Queen, 17 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Elizabeth: Her Life, Our Times: A Diamond Jubilee Celebration (Hardcover)
I can honestly say I have little time for royal sycophants but Titchmarsh has presented a thorough view of the Queen. It's admiring (naturally) but has plenty of interesting information. QEII has served England loyally for many years and this kind of tribute is deserved. I'm happy to say it's not just a royal puff piece either, there is real content here looking at many aspects of her life.

I've made a point of avoiding royal bootlicking, as it strikes me as pointless, but here is a book which takes a good historical span without being too detailed. It's worth looking at for many reasons.

A lot of my reading time recently has been spent on work. This is one of the few leisure books I've read recently. The other was the completely different but extremely funny Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys, which is poles apart from this but did make me laugh a good deal. It has a few good jokes about Queen Victoria (tasteful-ish) but otherwise royal free. Quite a splendid read.
