Read full description of the books The Queen and I:This is a solid four-star comic book of that particular kind of dry British humour but more bouncy, because Sue Townsend of the The Adrian Mole Diaries series fame is bouncy. She has also been a noted and outspoken socialist (for Americans: this is a perfectly acceptable and mainstream thing to be in the UK, Europe in general, unlike in the US) and here she carries all that to the extreme.
Essentially the book is about what would happen if a Marxist government took over and tossed the Queen and her fam out of Buckingham Palace and sent her to a sink estate to live on benefits. It's quite cleverly worked out and all the royal family stay in the characters we "know" them to be from the media.
Then she effing ruins it with an ending so crap that even Jodi Picoult, mistress of the cop-out ending, would be all agasp at such a cheap shot.
If you aren't going to read the book, then this is the ending, (view spoiler)[ it's all a dream (hide spoiler)].
Four stars demoted to three stars for that!
