Princess Diana – The Day she didn’t die is a novel written by Heath Samples with Claire Hooper.

If Princess Diana hadn’t of died that fateful August night in 1997 and in fact walked away from the crash in the tunnel imagine what her life could have been like. This story explores just what Diana’s life could have been like!

What would have become of her relationship with Dodi, Did she realise that someone had tried to kill her? Would she find the happiness she so searched?

Wow, what an unusual but fascinating concept for a story! I was thoroughly intrigued by this book and couldn’t wait to read it – I certainly wasn’t let down.

It has been beautifully written from Diana’s perspective, firstly of the car crash and the chaos surrounding it, and also of the events that followed. I have to admit that I didn’t expect to find it so believable – knowing what actually happened on that day I thought I’d find it difficult to imagine Dodi and Diana surviving and carrying on w

This “un-put-downable” book had me hooked right from the very start.

The compelling storyline is extremely powerful and starts at the point that Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed are caught up in the memorable car crash in Paris. They survive the crash and it then goes on to explore their suspicions as to whether it was a deliberate attempt on their lives or an unfortunate accident. They play it down to the press and to their families, yet their lives are dramatically affected by the effect this

First of all it's not humanly possible for me to NOT finish a book. And that's the only reason I finished this. Second of all if I could give a negative star, I would. Don't waste your time with this, even though it's a freebie on Kindle! Wasted time I'll never get back!
This. Book. Is. Hil. Ar . Ious.

*contains slight spoilers*

I know, I know. What did I expect? But I just saw the title and thought it would be a laugh. This review is going to be like kicking the kid with the low IQ in the playground, but I simply cannot resist.

First of all, the content of this book is utter bollocks. I mean, I'm still surprised that anyone can take a real person they didn’t even know, and then make up a load of ‘what if’ fiction about their (somewhat idealised) life. Worse, the

This was an interesting idea. It kicks off after Princess Diana and Dodi were involved in the Paris car accident and continues from there. However, I only stuck with it as I was intrigued as to what the author imagined happened afterwards, because the grammar, the spelling and lack of punctuation was the worst I've ever happened across.
I personally bookmarked 59 is therefore a record and made for hard reading. If I hadn't liked the story as much as I did (its only saving gra
I did actually enjoy reading this - not my usual book - was quite interesting and would have been oh so preferable to the true ending to this sorry tale
did not manage to finish this one off was too far fetched

I enjoyed this book more than I expected. I didn't realize there was a separate storyline with Ella, a college student who greatly admires Diana, and I ended up liking those chapters more than the Diana ones. That being said, the cliffhanger ending of the Diana storyline definitely made me want to read the sequel (it seems like this is meant to be the first book in a series about Diana).

The editing and/or formatting of the Kindle version was pretty bad, but for how little I paid for the book, it
Helen Maltby
Not sure why I read this! I do like alternative history and 'what if ...' scenarios so perhaps that was it. It was also free on the Kindle!

Interesting idea and good exploration of Islam. However the writing was poor. How many times does an author need to write the word 'Diana' on one page! Okay, she is the only female character on the page, we kind of know who you are talking about if you say 'her' or 'she'! That really bugged me.

Still, a quick read for half-term
I give the author credit for trying, and applaud the idea of a novel of "what if" in the case of Diana Princess of Wales.

But ... I had more questions the further I read and the more topics that were raised. Sadly, there is not one part of the story line that is resolved in this book. A good editor is sorely needed to make a real book out of some random ideas.
James Patterson
Rubbish. Claptrap. Not even well considered tripe. Part 1 of a series? Give me strength - or give me back those wasted hours reading it (just in case it got better... it didn't)
