3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Picture Book, June 5, 2011
This review is from: WILLIAM & CATHERINE: Their Story (Hardcover)
I was disappointed with this book by Andrew Morton. I had read his Diana: Her Words book some time ago and found it to be a fascinating portrait of Princess Diana. When I saw William and Catherine: A Royal Wedding was coming out I was hoping that it would be an equal portrait of William and his bride, Catherine. However it was definitely lacking. It's mostly a picture book. It has pictures on almost every page and nothing but pictures for about the last 10 pages of the 224 page book. I was looking for more detail on their lives especially together. Although Mr. Morton told me a lot more than I knew about their college years together and their living together after college, but didn't really go into any detail. Mr. Morton glossed over William's stints in the Royal Air Force. It was almost like he couldn't find any sources or he was trying to put this book out too quickly to capitalize on the wedding fame. I really wish he would have taken more time to gather more information and made it a longer more detailed book. Overall I gave it an average rating because of the pictures and the college years information that he does have. I wouldn't recommend it as a source book for anyone however if someone is wanting a picture book then this is an excellent find.
