Format: Hardcover
It's well researched and obviously the author tries to get every piece of information about this elusive woman, but it is written like a magazine article with all the cliches ("proud parents of a newborn," "wanted the best for their girls," "delighted to meet her future-son-in-law"). It doesn't add anything to what everybody knows already about this couple.

Also, when reading you can't shake of the thought of reading a gossip. "How do I know THIS is true??"

Easy, fluffy read.

A very fluffy read, gossipy and it takes little effort to comprehend. Most of the information about Kate and the Royal Family are retreads, but still fun and light. It may be best if any interested party waits for this to be on the shelves of their local library. I got it as a birthday gift for myself and plan on passing it around to my friends.

I've read a lot of books on the Royal family. I'm not a Royalist, but I'm not someone who hates them, either. I just find their type of fame/privilege quite interesting and have enjoyed reading the behind-the-scenes books.

While I found this book interesting and a fun read-- I couldn't help but think (time and time again) that it almost sounded like PR material from Ma Middleton herself. It appears, in Ms. Nicholl's eyes, that The Duchess can do no wrong. Can't hold down a job because she needs to be at William's beck and call? Poor thing. She takes her top off and is photographed? Sad, sad, Duchess.

It does not touch much on Kate and William's break-up, especially the parts where he yelled "I'm free" out in public and tried very hard to date...only to realize not many ladies wanted to be the future Queen. In Katie Nicholl's version, they broke up, Kate had a few tears and then they were happily back together.

Seems like anything that could show her in a negative (or at least a more honest) light is promptly dismissed and swept under the rug. What a shame, as this could have been a much more interesting book had the author written anything besides Kate Fluff.

I honestly believe many of the sources were from the Middleton family or at least close friends, which explains why it is full of fluff. A good read-- but definitely Middleton propaganda.

This book has some information provided by interviews of people who knew Kate at the various schools she attended as a child. Overall, it seems like a very "white-washed" version of her life. After I read it, I did not have the sense of knowing significantly more about her than before I read the book. I, as the reader, did not have a sense of knowing about a multi-dimensional person. It seemed as though the people interviewed went out of their way to say positive things while the author chose not to include anything negative or controversial.

I've been following Ms. Nicholl for quite some time, and she has a real passion for reporting on William and Kate's love story. She interviews those who have witnessed the couple's love affair, and reveals some details that were previously unknown by the public. This is a must-read!

Nothing new to report in this book. I was looking for something of interest or new. Nothing. If you know nothing about DOC you might find it interesting. If you have NOT read the papers in the past six years - skip.

Format: Hardcover
author Katie Nicholl must have been on a boatload of stimulants, or something, when she wrote this. You get the image of her at her computer, typing away madly, with a crazed, wide-eyed look, maybe drooling a little. (I am on meds for all kinds of things so this is definitely not a stab at people with disabilities my or any other kind.)

I was able to stomach a single chapter of breathless, over-the-top, excruciatingly embellished hyperbole before giving up. It's so overwrought it actually makes you tired to read it.

I love Babykins and Big Willy and have followed them and collected magazines for years, but this book is for a whole 'nother level of Kate worshiper: "Whack-job."

Really wanted to like this book, couldn't get into it. Couldn't even force myself halfway through. Thank goodness I checked it out from the library and didn't waste the money. Usually if a book is a slow read, but interesting, I will buy it so I don't feel pressured to return it. Definitely will not be buying this one.
