    1. After less than ten pages, I decided I liked Wallis Simpson very much. If Wallis presented herself in the same ways in person as she did in this writing, then she would have been no less interesting to know. She must have been charming, opinionated, decisive and with a great deal of inner strength to have lived this life with the Duke. Thanks to her ghost writers (apparently there were three), the writing style was very well done and I enjoyed this book immensely. I am still entranced and curiou [...]

    2. The parts about her childhood and first marriage are interesting and not nearly as well known as the rest of her story. There are also wonderful pictures in the book, especially at the end, showing the Duke developing an English garden and the Duchess decorating the interior of the French mill they converted into their weekend home. These pictures also make it clear why the Duchess repeatedly was selected one of the best dressed women in the world.

    3. Normally I don't care for memoirs, as I prefer biographies, but I very much enjoyed reading from the point of view of the Duchess of Windsor.

    4. This book was EXTREMELY dry to me in the way it was written. I didn't like it. It's sort of an autobiography written by Wallis Simpson (the late Duchess of Windsor)and to me, it almost read like a fairytale. I expected "And they lived happily ever after" to come at the end of the book. The language in the book was very flowery and over blown. Everybody was painted in the best light possible, which is normal in an autobiography I guess-nobody wants to be the villain in the story. But that makes f [...]

    5. Even though I really liked it in the beginning as I was rushing to get through it to get to the part where she meets the Prince. However, even through it was very detail oriented early on in the book when describing people's house sand material objects and possession, not many intimate details were provide regarding her relationship with David. She makes on brief statement about falling in love while walking on a beach but otherwise she doesn't really go into detail about their personal relation [...]

    6. Fantastic writing style and editing gives the reader a glimpse into the life of Wallis, an ordinary woman from the South who managed to escape from her town, travel the world, and eventually become demonized for spear-heading the scandal, abdication, and exile of a king of England. Wallis describes her struggles and the due diligence she employed to avoid these unfortunate (and unavoidable) events. This story also provides a rare glimpse at the finer details of the balance of power between the r [...]

    7. Good ghostwriting - I understand there were three. I've read several other things about HRH & his wife; I now realize they were very strongly slanted. This obviously was slanted the opposite direction, but I have a less opprobrious opinion of her, though not of him.

    8. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great insight into one of the most talked about loved stories of the decade. Have now ordered Edward VIII's book and await it excitedly.

    9. Pariatur placeat ipsam. Saepe aut nihil iusto. Aut laboriosam odio amet deserunt aspernatur. Dolore quia ut quis veritatis iusto quo.
