10 reviews for Queen Elizabeth Book: The Biography of Queen Elizabeth II

  1. Morgan Davison

    QE2 – her life
    If you loved Netflix’s The Crown, this biography gives great insight to the history and world politics surrounding Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The biography does a great job outlining the queen’s role – what her “job” entails and how far her reach extends.

    “To Elizabeth, being Queen means presenting a regal image, despite personal or family problems.” – a quote taken from this biography, I think best sums up the queen’s role and her intentions behind her actions.

    One issue I have with this biography is the characterization of Lady Diana. However, it was interesting to read about everything with the Queen’s point of view in mind. Anther issue I have is a typo- Prince Andrew is called “Andres” in Chapter 14. And the last issue is it seems that this biography has not been updated- as it doesn’t include William and Kate’s third child, Louis, and also does not include Harry’s marriage to Meghan.

    All in all, this biography provides incredible context as to the Queen’s history and her role in the world.

    Great summary of a powerful woman’s life
    Queen Elizabeth is such a fascinating and adored figurehead, and arguably one of the most notable influencers and leaders of the century. I did not know how tenacious and brave she was in her younger years, but it definitely makes sense regarding her influence and reign now. While she is more of a public icon than a president, it is incredible to read how she has helped shape Britain’s identity and maintained the love of the public and the people even in face of adversity and changing times. I liked that she was always for technology and moving forward, proving what an independent and strong figure she is. Would definitely recommend this read!

    Summary of Queen Elizabeth II’s life
    Such an eye opening summary of the regality and grace of Queen Elizabeth II. She was compassionate yet contained, forgiving yet disciplined and most of all a grand leader for those that were to fall in line after her.
    I would highly recommend.

    Thin toast
    Boring chronology you could assemble from Wikipedia. Quietly pro-royal but sheds no light or shadow on the issue. No looks behind the curtain. No Corgi stories. No Balmoral stories. A small breakfast with thin toast.

  6. Elizabeth A. Brooks

    Too simplistic
    This was an amusing, brief read, but was too superficial for my taste. I can’t really recommend it, but perhaps someone who isn’t a history buff would enjoy it more.

  7. Cheryl A. Keith

    The Reigning Queen Elizabeth
    I am still in awe of this woman. She is someone who throughout her life has exhibited Grace and poise while she was able to show her concern for others.

  8. JO

    Tribute to a Queen
    This is a fine sketch of a wonderful woman who dedicated her whole life to serving others in her family, her country, and the world. It’s not a lengthy biography, but it gives us a sense of who Queen Elizabeth was, the magnitude of her service and dedication, and why she will be so very much missed in our world, now that she has passed.


    Non do più di tre stelle
    Purtroppo è un libro molto breve, pochissime pagine. È utile per chi vuole cominciare a conoscere, seppure a grandi linee, the Queen.

    I found this barely generic. It was more like talking to someone who knew a bit about the queen and they attempted to write about it. Google has more information. This book lacks a lot.
