    1. Please see my detailed review at Graceann's "Diana: Her New Life" Review" Please click that the review was helpful to you at so that my rating continues to climb! Written from a clearly pro-Diana point of view, this overview of the years between late 1992 and early 1995 was interesting, if one-sided. I'm looking forward to reading the more even-handed books that cover her whole life.


    2. I got inspired to read more of "biography" style novels from this novel onwards. The emotional upheaval , suffocation and confusion that Diana went through was heart-breaking, the book got me hooked to read more about Diana and other books written on her. I would consider reading this book again.



    3. I have not read Diana: Her True Story. We got this copy from an aunt who bought all the commemorative books and magazines capitalizing on Diana's demise.This to me read like a tabloid book, especially since most of the sources were unnamed. I couldn't get a firm grasp on the timeline either, as the author didn't seem to prioritize chronological order. But in some ways it was still an enlightening read (hoping what he reported are all factual) and I have more understanding behind the activities o [...]


    4. Diana: Her New Life book was a good biography and you found out many things at one does not normally know about royalty. I read this book at the same time as my mother because she was so interested in Princess Diana. It is a good biography that caused many conversations and would be good for mature teenagers to learn another area of the world and of royalty but still has many similar problems that we have here. It touches base on her unlovable childhood to the affairs and even has excerpts of th [...]


    5. I cried with my mum when we heard the news, the woman I had been brought up to admire and see as an icon for so many causes and pains. After she died, we read so many books, too many for me to even recall. She was fascinating in life and her death created a void for my generation as deaths of other amazing people in the decades before her.Whatever the state of the royal family and all their drama, Diana brought change that we all wanted to see in the world. Ever her name used after her death, sh [...]


    6. Let me start off this review by saying this isn't a book I would have chosen for myself. I recently received 3 boxes of books from an aunt and apparently she's purchased every book there is about Princess Diana.This book seemed more like something from a gossip column or a tabloid magazine. It seemed far fetched and I really felt like a lot of quotes were perhaps taken out of context to fit the authors personal view.


    7. WOWI am sad that she had to live a horrible life. The royal family really treated her like crap, as did the media. She did not deserve that treatment from a man who CHEATED ON HER!She is such an amazing woman who overcame the horrible life in the royal family and media. I feel she is in a much better and safer place!


    8. I have not read the first book written on Princess Diana by Andrew Morton. I think this book may have been more relevent when read at the time it was published instead of years later, after Princess Diana's death etc. Still, it was interesting reading about how sad and difficult her life was. All she ever wanted was a husband to love her, and she married one who loved someone else!


    9. It's to bad she didn'nt get to enjoy her new life fo very long. I still miss her. I would have loved to have seen her as grandmother to Willam's baby. I bought this and read it before she died and I read it and look at the pics every once and a while. I like to look back on what used to be.


    10. An interesting commentary on Dianas later yearsAn insightful read, seeming to be a truthful a count with no axe to grind from the author, albeit now a bit out of date


    11. It was quite painful to read about her experiences but the author could have done a better jobmehow the writing style did not hold interest.


    12. Still nonsenseI grew up with Diana as my childhood princess and remember vividly the news of her death and watching the funeral. It seems that 20 years after her death there is still no accurate picture of her life, ans much mawkish sentiment and vile conspiracy is attached to her memory.



    13. Complicated and quite hard goingThe author jumps from here to there and I just found the whole book hard going from beginning to end.


    14. Turned out to be very disappointing does give some clue about Diana's personal life but gives too many minute unnecessary details that spoils and kills the fun of reading the book. many intricate details make you ponder about book's authenticity splendid part are the remarkable 32 photos inside the book.
