Amazon.com Review

Even the most jaded watchers of the royal saga were caught up in the worldwide outpouring of emotion that followed Princess Diana's death on August 31, 1997. Thousands--maybe millions--paid their respects with flowers; the 80-odd people who contributed their reflections to this book pay homage with well-chosen words. This compilation of memories and tributes, released exactly one year after Diana's death, represents a remarkable range: brilliant writers Martin Amis and Maya Angelou, legendary film director Richard Attenborough, friends and family of Diana, political figures, clergymen, and a sampling of the ordinary people who were touched by the life of this extraordinary woman. For all the reams written about the princess, her story is not complete without a record of the intimate emotions she evoked in acquaintances, historians, feminists, humanitarians, and journalists, which are all captured in the essays, poems, and letters of Requiem. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital Fund, one of Diana's charities. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the few very best books on Diana. Her closest friends speak or write about her not long after her death. The Clive James piece, "No", is unforgettable, as is the late poet laureate's poem 6 September 1997. This is a keeper; should be owned by all who love or admire Diana.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Requiem: Diana, Princess of Wales is a beautiful and moving book. While it contains no photographs (except for the cover), it is full of moving tributes and personal accounts of Diana from her friends and many well-known British and American journalists. It also contains various excerpts from newspapers and magazines in the days immediately following her death. Some of the accounts by her friends made you feel like you knew her just that little bit more and also made you wonder what she would have gone on to accomplish had she lived. As I read, I found myself rereading many of the tributes before going on to the next. This is a book I will keep and treasure and undoubtedly reread over the years.

at least in a very long time. I picked up the book as soon as received and had a difficult time putting it down. Its been a long time (over 2 years) since Diana's passing but this book made it feel like it was last month. All the feelings and emotions came flooding back & made me remember what a great loss this was to the world. Obviously the writers of the essays etc had very strong emotions towards Princess Diana. The feeling of love for this lady comes pouring out of each story.

Format: Hardcover
While dozens of pictorial testimonials to Princess Diana have already appeared Requiem offers more than eighty written tributes and recollections. Dont buy this book for pictures it leaves that to others. But this 43 year old does not mind saying the tributes and recollections moved him to tears. If you are a Diana fan this book is a must have.
