I had heard that there was a TV show all about Queen. Now I have to admit I have not seen the show yet but when I had the opportunity to read the book I thought why not. So this book is called “The Crown: The Official Companion, Volume 1: Elizabeth II, Winston Churchill, and the Making of a Young Queen (1947-1955)” by Robert Lacey and really the title tells you all you need to know.
As I said before its a companion book to the Netflix series so I can take a wild guess and say that there will be a few more books coming out as the series moves ahead.
I did enjoy the photo’s tremendously. It was a mixture of actual photo’s and photo’s used for the tv show.
I felt the book gave a good perception of what happened and then it was compare to what the tv series showed. So I felt that was well done. And no you do not have to see the show to enjoy this book.
All in all a very interesting book, now I just have to watch the series.
