I remember getting a kick out of his book, maybe my first exposure to alternative conservatism which was quite an eye-opener.

However, it's been decades since I read this, so nothing more to add... I think it's worth reading this.

Apalling. The writing, especially coming from a known journalist was poor and entirely uninviting. Why this book is so popular I cannot fathom. I was truly looking forward to reading it and it was an immense let down.
Live and learn.

I can not give this book a star. It is a good thing that the author, Julie Burchill, did not try to imply divine Godlike status on Diana until the very last few pages of her book of I would have never read it to the end. I have read hundreds of books on Diana and the various members of the Royal Family. In doing so I have come to the understanding that Diana was as much, if not more so, to blame for the troubles in her marriage and life. Julie Burchill even writes that Diana was a liar and very devious. To the author that was fine but no one else could get away with it. One of many pictures that she included in the book showed Diana staring into the heavens while holding a nun's hand. It spoke volumes about Diana. I very much doubt that if Diana had been homely she would not have impacted the public as she did. Diana was a very flawed person who did do some good and deeply loved her children but overall was her own worst enemy. The author bashed the Royal Family but to her Diana could do no wrong no matter how badly she did.… (mais)

Okay I re-read this (10/12) because I'd forgotten I'd read it (in 10/9/10) and it was actually quite gripping, like an episode of Skins. There's some weird race stuff which I need to think more about, that sort of Sarah Silverman-y "edgy" humor which I actually kind of hate most of the time but there's something real going on in this book so I just went with it. I don't know. I also couldn't parse the class stuff, but I think the narrator is meant to be from a more posh background, or middle-class? The various schoolgirl romances were well done, so that's something.… (mais)
