The book has made me relook at queen Victoria during this late stage in her life. She was so hardworking, principled on matters and equally isolated, even lonely. Hafiz Abdul Karim aka Munshi seems to have given companionship and unwavouring loyalty despite being so hated. There are many moments where I had to remind myself this was the late 1800s. Queen Victoria was a pioneer of equal opportunity so it seems. Good read.
The book is clearly and concisely written, and sets out the history and the supporting evidence in an easy to follow logical manner. The writer is very balanced and does present the full story, including details about the opposition to the unlikely friendship. This was a quick and interesting read, and one I would recommend to anyone with an interest in the Victorian era, or Royal History.
