An adequate but not spectacular book about the life of the most controversial British monarch of the 20th century. One major quibble I have with author Ziegler is his vocabulary: He falls into the same trap as publisher Conrad Black and uses unintelligible five syllable words when either a shorter word, or a rephrase that would explain the concept better, would do. This is also a book not for the faint of heart - the skulduggery and backstabbing present throughout the novel, as well as Wallis Simpson's sense of entitlement, will numb even the casual reader. Liked the book, but I wouldn't order it to be put on my personal bookshelf.
