A sad story from beginning to end-- This is the quintessential Diana read, and as one reviewer wrote, it's the closest thing to an autobiography we will ever get. The first part of the book, in this 25th anniversary edition, shows word-for-word transcripts from Diana herself, giving information to Morton through clandestine means. I agree with other reviewers that Morton's writing is nothing special but, I'm still giving it a high rating for the information he manages to pack into every page.
One whole section of the book was a transcript of the tapes Diana smuggled to the author which was the background to the book he wrote.
It was jarring not only how sad Diana was, which is no secret now, but just how ordinary she was. Not a pleasant read.
It was a book that needed to be written. If must have been awful to find out your spouse only married you to produce an heir and a spare. The way the queen reacted after Diana's death was horrible. However - the movie that came out of that faux pax was brilliant.
Interesting content, but I'm really amazed how bad the writing is.
The book that kicked off the end of Diana's marriage. By spilling the beans to Morton, she broke the Royal Family's cardinal rule - don't expose the family secrets to the press.
