Author: Sally Bedell Smith
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Number of pages: 663
Time period: Mostly 1950’s - presentMy overall opinion: It was pretty good! I really enjoyed learning about Elizabeth II. I think I’d like her. One quote that the book quoted from a man called Callaghan (one of her prime ministers): “What one gets is friendliness but not friendship.” After finishing this book, I think that that describes her perfectly. Anyway, it was interesting and well-written; not too many political details (which would have made it
boring to me), and not flippant either. I recommend it if you want to learn more about Queen Elizabeth II.
