Loved, loved it!
Loved it! Thanks for putting a familiar voice on, I loved listening to Lady Rosamund. It really put an interesting spin on the book.
I totally enjoyed this book. It helped round out my information on the Duchess. I had only heard what other people wrote, and so this really brought ground to who she actually was. I totally recommend it.
I really enjoyed this book. I didn't know much about Wallis Simpson except headline/sound bites. I finished the book feeling sorry for the Duchess and grateful that the Duke abdicated the throne.
Say something about yourself!
The book was wonderful and couldn't stop listening even though I know how it ends but Samantha Bond was perfection.
Great story. Well-read and captivating. The author offers an in depth account of The Duchess' life in harmony and turmoil.
Though very well written, I couldn't help being disappointed in that the book did not delve as deep into the aftermath of the abdication as it did before it.
The first part of the book covering Simpson's early years does give some sense of Wallis Simpson's early life experience and character. From the moment Simpson hooks up with the then king, the book goes downhill and becomes a collection of letter excerpts from Wallis herself and others witness to her life. All sense of Wallis' character and experience is lost.
I like the realistic potrayal of this nasty woman. I did not like her and it removes the glamour and romance and shows the truth.
Yes I would.
Be grateful I am who I am
This book confirmed what I thought of Wallis she was a nasty piece of work and got what she deserved. Good book and shows what really happened.
This is similar to the account of the life of Pamela Harriman in "Life Of The Party". However, Pamela Harriman was certainly more interesting and accomplished.
Both of these memorable characters seem to have mastered the art of enchanting
a large number of men. Both women insinuated themselves into a ring side seat
for the most important happenings of the last century.
Samantha did well with projecting the various characters through masterful simulations of voice timbre.
The life and times of one of the most powerful and memorable women of the 20th Centrury
The long drawn out child hood and insecurities were forever to slog through. And then the final idea that she really did not want to marry the Duke, and consequently there is this big scandal. I have no clue what the real story really was but this seems far fetched.
I stopped it at the first chapter. Author is a speculator, and kind of rude.
Samantha is just fine.
The author is a jerk face know it all!
