it was ok
bookshelves: popculture
Read in October, 2007

Too detailed, and yet, not detailed enough. You can't just say things like "Camilla's friends thought Diana had Borderline Personality Disorder" and leave it at that. Why did they think so? Did they say anything at the time, or is this a post facto diagnosis?

By the end I was thoroughly sick of Diana and Charles, neither of whom had/has a bit of sense. They both seemed smart enough, in different ways, but totally spoiled and not a bit strategic. I get the sense Brown was tired of them as well, as the chapters detailing the decline of the marriage were of the "he said/she said, she did/he did" sort, with none of the larger social class and customs scene setting (which I mentioned in a comment on Alissa's review) that marked the early chapters.

Sadly lacking in photos, too, especially for a book that talked about all the iconic pictures of Diana and Co. over the years.
