I truly enjoyed reading and learning about the dignified queen. This history chronicles her personal life, including details about her noteworthy personality and ideals. I wish the account would have provided more information about the cultural context and global situation of her times.

I found Strachey's book to be one of the most interesting biographies I've read, more in book form than an actual biography. The inserts from her diaries really added to the content and helped get to know her character better. It flowed really well and I would recommenf this book for a fun report, but as for spare time reading... Maybe something a bit shorter.

I am not sure if it was just this version or not, but this book had text errors throughout. I was only able to take it for 11 pages.
