Customer Review

on 23 September 2007
I absolutely loved this book, I have never really been interested in the Royal Family but the idea rather appealed to me - the Queen borrowing books from a mobile library. The story develops from that simple idea and becomes a very thought provoking tale of her life and what it means to be queen. The book is very short (perhaps a couple of hours of reading) and as it was drawing to an end I couldn't imagine how Mr Bennett was going to bring it to a close, let me assure you that he manages in the final line to bring it to a spirited ending.

What I particularly liked was the detail (whether imagined or real) of palace life and the job of the equerrys who act as "coaches" to the public when they meet the queen. In addition the Queen's slow realisation of her own affect on other people.

I would recommend it for a rainy afternoon you'll love the detail, the ideas and the humour.
