There were some chapters which were more interesting than others. If you're looking to read about the current monarch, this book won't tickle your fancy. But for what it is- 5 centuries of royal scandals- it's a really fun read. If not for the fact that these were real people, born into the public eye, you'd think it was the script for a juicy soap opera. If you're interested in the history of the monarch, this does include some family trees, which are helpful given all the repeated names (George and Elizabeth come to mind). This book really is all about the scandals, more than the monarch. Happily ever after, this book is not.
