5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! February 7, 2012

What a wonderful freebie! Reading the Queen's annual Christmas speeches over the years provides a wonderful thread of continuity as well as a unique year-by-year synopsis of and insight into the largest issues, celebrations and trials of the day. Personally written by her, the Queen's messages are eternally uplifting, heartwarming, personal, wise and measured. Her "voice" remains nearly unchanged through the decades. Nearly every speech concludes with some form or another of a faithful "I wish you all a very Happy Christmas." So vivid you can almost "hear" Her Majesty speaking, with no need for audio. The Queen's speeches span no more than 1 to 3 screens on average. A pure pleasure to scroll through, especially during a down moment.

For anyone who has an interest in the history of Britain or the royal family, this is an excellent little freebie. Each year's speech is just a couple of pages long, but gives a snapshot of any given year. It's great how each speech gives such a feel for the year even though it's so short. I'm sure fans of the royals will lap this up, but it's also a great read for history buffs. Her Maj has a good way with words, and the speeches are a pleasure to read.

Highly recommended. I downloaded this just because it was free, but I'm glad I did, it's a really nice addition to my Kindle library.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Source of History May 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am so glad that this book was compiled. It is a history book in a class of its own. As you read through the speeches you get a brief overview of the year at hand. It is fun to be able to read through them in this continuous manner. I have always enjoyed learning about the British Royal family and part of our Christmas tradition wad to hear the queen give her speech at Christmas. This book for me is truly a gem. I would hope that even those who just want to get a brief overview of changes that have occurred in her life would appreciate reading through the speeches.
