    From the moment of her ascension to the throne in 1952 at the age of twenty-five, Queen Elizabeth II has been the object of unparalleled scrutiny. But through the fog of glamour and gossip, how well do we really know the world’s most famous monarch? Drawing on numerous interviews and never-before-revealed documents, acclaimed biographer Sally Bedell Smith pulls back the curtain to show in intimate detail the public and private lives of Queen Elizabeth II.

    Lauren says: "3.5 stars- fascinating"
    "THIS WAS A CHARACTURE, NOT A BIOGRAPHY"

    Any additional comments?

    This book presented the Queen not as a person, as I had hoped, but as a mythical figure, perfect in every way . I was drawn to finish it, but regret having wasted the time.
