To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've only read 5% of the book and already it claims that Harry was 3rd in line to the throne, and then that Christmas is spent at Buckingham Palace whereas the family go to Sandringham. Utter tosh.
I'm now at 70% and it hasn't got any better. I thought I was buying a well researched book about H&M (not the clothing store!). Where the Middletons came from wasn't in the title nor was William and Kate meeting/splitting up/getting back together/moving to Anglesey blah blah blah - and it's still full of errors. Harry's course at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst was postponed due to injury then we read that he was going to Sandringham. The author,s and their subjects if they had anything to do with it, should be embarrassed. Terrible.
This book has obviously been written to make a quick buck. Superficial, zero research oe depth. For example, they glibly state Meghan suffered race discrimination at school. If they had done research at all they would have discovered 66% of the school was 'ethnic minority' so the idea she was 'the only black face' is laughable.
They quote the 'bleeding obvious' as in Victoria Arbiter saying the pair missed a trick in not posing for baby photos early and would have endeared them more to the public. They didn't bother to delve into the question, in that case WHY did they snub the public.
What really annoyed and bored me was that there then followed a potted bio of the entire royal family all the way through to the death of Diana and how Carole met Michael Middleton. YAWN. Nothing you haven't read a million times before.
At £14 for the Kindle download, this is just someone out to make a quick buck out of 'cut and paste'. No research, no insight, no depth, nothing new.
In the way that a certain American Duchess writes, this book is word salad, absolute rubbish. It's all been copied from another book. The way the paragraphs are thrown together, with two or three facts all thrown in the same paragraph is tripe..and amateurish. Quite frankly I have never read a biography that is in no way even written objectively or subjectively. It's just a copy of other people's books and news reports. They have tried to make themselves sound witty but fail miserably. Wish I hadn't wasted my money.
Awful tosh, full of factual mistakes, like writing that William and Kate got married in the same place as Charles and Diana, ie Westminster Abbey. It doesn’t stake longs to find out that C and D got married in St Paul’s Cathedral. Lots of other errors, that have been pointed out in other reviews. Don’t bother with this book, you will regret buying it, like I did.
