    This “un-put-downable” book had me hooked right from the very start. The compelling storyline is extremely powerful and starts at the point that Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed are caught up in the memorable car crash in Paris. They survive the crash and it then goes on to explore their suspicions as to whether it was a deliberate attempt on their lives or an unfortunate accident. They play it down to the press and to their families, yet their lives are dramatically affected by the effect this This “un-put-downable” book had me hooked right from the very start. The compelling storyline is extremely powerful and starts at the point that Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed are caught up in the memorable car crash in Paris. They survive the crash and it then goes on to explore their suspicions as to whether it was a deliberate attempt on their lives or an unfortunate accident. They play it down to the press and to their families, yet their lives are dramatically affected by the effect this accident has upon both of them. It then goes on to portray the developing relationship between Diana and Dodi. It shows how their lives are still intertwined with both the national press, who are watching their every move, and the Royal establishment, despite the fact that she and Prince Charles are now divorced. The book explores her interest in learning about the Muslim faith and shows how much she deeply adores her two sons. It's so interesting to learn more about how their loves would have progressed had this lovely lady survived that awful day. The story also includes Ella, a student and massive Diana fan to the point of obsession, and how because of Diana she is keen to learn more about the Muslim faith, her life very much mirroring that of this very famous and beautiful lady. Really don’t want to go too much further into the plot at this stage, because it would be a real spoiler for the book, but there are a number of moments throughout the book, where you feel like you really need to ask some questions and I certainly hope that a sequel at some point will satisfy my curiosity! The ending was a real stunner and definitely left me wanting more! I think that the fact that you already know the characters helps you to get deeply involved in the story right from the very beginning as you don’t have to create characters in your mind like other fiction books which makes it quite unusual. It was one of those books that left you thinking about it even when you weren’t reading it, and I couldn’t wait to get back to it, to find out what was going to happen. A definite page turner. This book would transfer fantastically into film and I would absolutely love to be seeing it on a large screen as I think it would have the whole world transfixed. I really hope that Hollywood film makers are picking up on the vibe which is being generated from this deeply moving, amazing and powerful novel.

    Princess Diana – The Day she didn’t die is a novel written by Heath Samples with Claire Hooper. If Princess Diana hadn’t of died that fateful August night in 1997 and in fact walked away from the crash in the tunnel imagine what her life could have been like. This story explores just what Diana’s life could have been like! What would have become of her relationship with Dodi, Did she realise that someone had tried to kill her? Would she find the happiness she so searched? When I was asked to read t Princess Diana – The Day she didn’t die is a novel written by Heath Samples with Claire Hooper. If Princess Diana hadn’t of died that fateful August night in 1997 and in fact walked away from the crash in the tunnel imagine what her life could have been like. This story explores just what Diana’s life could have been like! What would have become of her relationship with Dodi, Did she realise that someone had tried to kill her? Would she find the happiness she so searched? When I was asked to read this novel I jumped at the chance as I was a huge fan of Princess Diana and used to love watching her on the TV or reading about her in the magazines etc. Was our interest in her part of the reason she is not here now. That we will never know. I didn’t read this expecting any answers etc, that is not what it is about – it is a novel and Heath and Claire makes that very clear. Heath and Claire has written a great story, and of course it is only a story as clearly none of the events they has written about could ever happen. The book is very easy to get into and that I put down to the fact that we all ‘knew’ the subject leads so well. Any of the things that happen within the book could so easily happen and therefore really believable. As a side to the story Heath also has included chapters about a 19-year-old girl, Ella who is a huge fan of Diana and it would seems tries to explore the same paths that Diana is treading. To be honest, I personally didn’t think this part was needed. I think the huge amount of emotion around Diana and all content that Heath and Claire were writing about with Diana and Dodi etc was gripping enough to keep the reader turning the pages (or clicking the next button due to it being an ebook!) Other may disagree with me and enjoy these sections very much, that’s just personal taste. I really did enjoy the story and wonder if there will be additional stories to follow. I was hoping for a happy ending fit for a Princess – did I find it within these pages? You’ll have to read it to find out! Thank you so much to Heath Samples and Kim Nash for bring this book to my attention and sending me a copy. I wish you lots of success with it.

    Wow, what an unusual but fascinating concept for a story! I was thoroughly intrigued by this book and couldn’t wait to read it – I certainly wasn’t let down. It has been beautifully written from Diana’s perspective, firstly of the car crash and the chaos surrounding it, and also of the events that followed. I have to admit that I didn’t expect to find it so believable – knowing what actually happened on that day I thought I’d find it difficult to imagine Dodi and Diana surviving and carrying on w Wow, what an unusual but fascinating concept for a story! I was thoroughly intrigued by this book and couldn’t wait to read it – I certainly wasn’t let down. It has been beautifully written from Diana’s perspective, firstly of the car crash and the chaos surrounding it, and also of the events that followed. I have to admit that I didn’t expect to find it so believable – knowing what actually happened on that day I thought I’d find it difficult to imagine Dodi and Diana surviving and carrying on with their lives, but I was so caught up in the story and the surreal feeling of reading about Diana’s life as it could have been, that I had to remind myself that what I was reading was actually fiction. The story is also told from Ella’s perspective, Ella is a student who follows Diana’s life closely and seems to try to live her life as similar to Diana as she possibly can. She is a likeable character who is clearly inspired by Diana, something that I think many people were, and would still be if she was with us today. The ending was fantastic with cliffhangers for both Diana and Ella, I would love to read a sequel to this book as I am keen to find out what happens next for both of them. This is a must read for anyone with an interest in Diana or for those who have ever wondered ‘what if’, it made me think of other major events in our history and got me wondering how things would be now if those events had never happened. A surreal and fascinating book that is difficult to put down.

    First of all it's not humanly possible for me to NOT finish a book. And that's the only reason I finished this. Second of all if I could give a negative star, I would. Don't waste your time with this, even though it's a freebie on Kindle! Wasted time I'll never get back! First of all it's not humanly possible for me to NOT finish a book.

This review is going to be like kicking the kid with the low IQ in the playground, but I simply cannot resist. First of all, the content of this book is utter bollocks. I mean, I'm still surprised that anyone can take a real person they didn’t even know, and then make up a load of ‘what if’ fiction about their (somewhat idealised) life. Worse, the author manages to make Dodi out to be a complete and utter bastard, which the ‘confident and strong’ Lady Di inexplicably puts up with. I especially liked the way that the author inserted (read: crowbarred) the infamous white Fiat into the tale, claiming that it side-bashes Di’s car into the bridge support. No mention of her driver being pissed as a fart. Yeah, let’s all hop on the conspiracy bandwagon, why don’t we? And then there’s a press conference straight afterwards. Why the hell would they have held a press conference after a car crash that they had survived?!! Who does that?! Sack that PR man! Oh god, and the use of the present tense! Ugh. It should be banned from all fiction writing. I can’t decide which is worse: present tense or first person. Both sound like a toddler’s essay on what they did over the summer holidays to me. Worse, it changes through the book. Some paragraphs are past tense without any hint that the character might be reminiscing, whilst the rest are: “Diana realises she’s a potato,” or, “Diana eats some grass,” or, “Dodi behaves like a complete tool.” The descriptions were horridly sycophantic. Clearly this book has been written with her fans in mind (and as if those fans have very little concept of reality), because she is constantly described as graceful, elegant and vulnerable-yet-confident-whilst-being-attractively-timid. Vomit. As if she never tripped over a ruck in the carpet or experienced ingrown hairs. Just because someone’s dead and admired doesn’t mean you have to describe them as sickeningly perfect. Granted, she does vomit a fair few times through the book, but no one seems to react with the slightest dismay at it. Perhaps it smelled of roses. In fact, the progression of many of the events described in this book is utterly unbelievable and, at times, naive. Di’s kids accept her impending nuptials without so much as a squeak of protest. Dodi is the quiet-yet-manly Mr Darcy archetype, but quickly morphs into someone with a complete lack of sensitivity. And getting pregnant again? Do you really think, after her actions during the first two pregnancies (like throwing herself down the stairs and quotes such as: “Why must a woman be so ill, just because she's pregnant?” or “The whole world is watching my stomach”) that this was a woman who enjoyed being knocked-up? And don’t forget the massive case of post-natal depression. I bet that in reality she was chugging down the contraceptive pills, three-at-a-time. Christ, now I’m getting too into this whole projection thing. In fact, I thought this contained a pretty poorly considered exploration of the relationship between someone associated with a very publicly Christian family and someone from a Muslim family. Would you get a kid born out of wedlock in such a public situation, if the father was as committed to his faith as this book implies? Balls you would. What is actually going on is that Dodi acts like a git, and the author uses his adherence to Islam as an excuse for his gittishness. But Di’s character isn’t innocent either (although Samples would have you believe she is). The Diana of this book behaves like a spoiled child around the subject of Islam, apparently surprised that the heritage of her kid is even an issue. In order for a relationship like that to even work in the first place, at least one member of the couple has to have sympathy with or an understanding of the religion of their partner. This doesn’t seem to happen until the end of the book, which I thought reflected a considerable amount of ignorance of interracial/inter-cultural relationships. And a midwife with another client? What? Was Di doing this on the NHS? With all that money, would the midwife of a couple that rich be busy? No. The scene in the shop. Come on! The only people with that little respect for other people’s privacy are journalists. What really would have happened is that someone might possibly have dared to have said, “Oh, are you Princess Diana?” and then everyone would have looked over without trying to look, before creeping away out of embarrassment that they even showed interest. No British person would rush to crowd around her, especially not the middle/upper class types you find in Fenwick’s. I think this book is a horrible example of projecting. The pages where her fan, Ella, describes her thoughts about Diana are nauseating. Throughout she tries to work out Di’s feelings and thoughts by obsessively empathising, using the information she gathers through TV and press. There’s a constant stream of, “How would I have felt?” and, “What must it have been like?” and, “What must have been going on in her mind?” Well, what the hell is going on in your mind? Don’t you have your own life? Aren’t there people closer to you whom you should worry about? I just don’t get the point of projecting and trying to feel someone else’s emotions and experiences when you don’t know them, are never likely to meet them, and when such empathy achieves nothing. Empathy is for understanding and communicating with people who need help and are immediately contactable. If I were suffering a breakdown, I would need an empathetic therapist. If I were a celebrity who had faced trauma, I would need empathetic friends. If I were a dead celebrity, I would need a nice coffin. Further, whatever thoughts and ideas this fan cooks up in her mental little head, they’re always going to be a greater reflection of the fan’s thought processes than those of a woman unknown to her. Actually, by the end of the book I got the feeling that Ella was a bit of a creepy weirdo and I didn’t particularly want to be in her warped little mind anymore. Come to think of it, this book is more disturbing than it is funny, and it gives a very poor representation of interracial couples. Anyway, if you liked what Diana did then do something for one of her charities. Go and hold hands with an AIDS patient. Donate some money to a landmine-clearing operation. Don’t give your hard-earned cash to this author.

    This was an interesting idea. It kicks off after Princess Diana and Dodi were involved in the Paris car accident and continues from there. However, I only stuck with it as I was intrigued as to what the author imagined happened afterwards, because the grammar, the spelling and lack of punctuation was the worst I've ever happened across.

If I hadn't liked the story as much as I did (its only saving grace) I would have deleted it after the first couple of pages. Such a shame it was ruined by such utter carelessness. Having come across this many errors it can only merit one star. If I was the author I'd be asking for a refund from whoever "edited" this.

    I enjoyed this book more than I expected. I didn't realize there was a separate storyline with Ella, a college student who greatly admires Diana, and I ended up liking those chapters more than the Diana ones. That being said, the cliffhanger ending of the Diana storyline definitely made me want to read the sequel (it seems like this is meant to be the first book in a series about Diana). The editing and/or formatting of the Kindle version was pretty bad, but for how little I paid for the book, it I enjoyed this book more than I expected.

    Not sure why I read this! I do like alternative history and 'what if ...' scenarios so perhaps that was it. It was also free on the Kindle! Interesting idea and good exploration of Islam. However the writing was poor. How many times does an author need to write the word 'Diana' on one page! Okay, she is the only female character on the page, we kind of know who you are talking about if you say 'her' or 'she'! That really bugged me. Still, a quick read for half-term Not sure why I read this! I do like alternative history and 'what if ...' scenarios so perhaps that was it. It was also free on the Kindle!

    I give the author credit for trying, and applaud the idea of a novel of "what if" in the case of Diana Princess of Wales. But ... I had more questions the further I read and the more topics that were raised. Sadly, there is not one part of the story line that is resolved in this book. A good editor is sorely needed to make a real book out of some random ideas. I give the author credit for trying, and applaud the idea of a novel of "what if" in the case of Diana Princess of Wales.
