Book of the Week: Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch
|Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch |
by Sally Bedell Smith
Throughout her reign, Her Majesty managed to stay above politics and, for the most part, controversy. If not exactly a Hollywood star, she is a major celebrity. She has even been portrayed on The Simpsons by comedian Eddie Izzard.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune praised Smith for offering a "most satisfying and enjoyable read," thanks to her "refreshinngly clear understanding of the role that Elizabeth plays both as sovereign and doyenne of a large, somewhat dysfunctional and often querulous family."
The San Antonio Express-News called Smith's work as "absolutely engaging," given that it was "very well-researched... warm and sympathetic."
The Telegraph lauded the book because it was "fluently written and containing quite a lot of intriguing 'new' information."
Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch (Paperback) is now available in Amazon, $16.31.
