    I wanted to read this because I had really enjoyed the movie version and was curious how much of the events in the film had been fictionalized Surprisingly, the movie was fairly accurate.Mark Logue, who is the grandson of speech therapist Lionel Logue, used family scrapbooks, journals and letters to create this account of Lionel s experience helping the Duke of York later known as King George VI with his lifelong ...

    Have you seen the movie with Colin Firth Okay then Well, that s that review done Okay, I m mostly kidding And actually, the book is a bit different from the movie, but for reasons that I can entirely understand However, in the series of incidents, they are very close, although Geoffrey Rush certainly came off aseccentric in the movie than Lionel Logue does in the book.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read w Have you seen the movie with Colin Firth Okay then Well, that s that review done Okay, I m mostly kidding And actually, the book is a bit different from the movie, but for reasons that I can entirely understand However, in the series of incidents, they are very close, although Geoffrey Rush certainly came off aseccentric in the movie than Lionel Logue does in the book.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why ...

    A man with a debilitating speech impediment may refuse to communicate regardless of his role and class in society Being thrown onto the throne of the British empire immediately puts a spotlight on his mouth and what comes out He has no choice, can tender no excuse The support system George VI found in his wife and Logue was invaluable What progress no just progress, bu...

    Book on CD read by Simon Vance3.5 Subtitled How One Man Saved the British Monarchy That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but Lionel Logue certainly seemed to have saved at least one monarch At the urging of his wife Elizabeth, the Duke of York known to the royal family as Bertie began to see speech therapist Lionel Logue for help in overcoming a lifelong stammer His father, King George V, insisted that his sons beg...

    Unlike most books turned movies, the book The King s Speech was written after the movie came out It is a fascinating read Mark Logue records the story of his grandfather, Lionel Logue, and Logue s relationship with King George VI Their friendship was a lo...

    two and a half stars as the author stated the movie was a biopic, not a documentary and this book served to related how Logue s life intersected with the life of the King based on his papers and diaries it s a dry, chronological summary of Logue s life and has the added benefit of suppling his reactions and feelings about the King It was clear that both men respected one another and had a unique and generous friendship after i saw the movie i read about 1500 pages of biographies on the queen m two and a half stars as the author stated the movie was a biopic, not a documentary and this book served to related how Logue s life intersected with the life of the King based on his papers and diaries it s a dry, chronological summary of Logue s life and has the added benefit of suppling his reactions and feelings about the King It was clear that both men respected one another and had a unique and generous friendship after i saw the movie i read about 1500 pages of biographies on the queen mother and the king so i was already overly familiar with most the the people and situations the author described For those who have no interest knowledge of Britain from 1920s 1950s this book could be boring I already had a good idea as to what was fictionalized for the movie and what was fact For me it was a lot of fun to read Logue s insight into the King and see how important the relationship was to both men this book gives the impression of being a pet project of the auth...

    4.5 starsWhat a great story madeimpressive interesting by the fact that it is true I m not a history, royalty or war buff, with limited interest in those topics, so perhaps this is part of the reason why I found this personal history so absorbing I loved the very detailed and intimate writings about some of the 20th Centuries most notable figures, include Edward and Mrs Simpson.I loved the portrayal of Bertie...
