Reviews - What do customers think about Diana: A Dedication in Seven Ages (Diana Princess of Wales Fund)?
Not for the casual Diana fan, more for the poetry lovers Jan 6, 2003
If you buy this CD set, be warned, you'll be getting about 21/2 hours of poetry readings by a long list of people. Many of whom you'll recognize and some you won't, I was suprised at how extensive a list of actors and others contributed readings (most under 2 minutes long, I wouldn't have thought some of them would have bothered). If the current this site.com offering is like the one I got in the U.K. you'll be getting a double CD with a little liner booklet full of CD listings, contributor photo's and several photo's of the Princess herself(including one on the cover). Apparently the album had the approval of the Princess of Wales memorial fund, my copy mentions it, Diana's signature (used as a logo by the Fund) is on the album and each CD. I found it too tedious to listen to myself not being a poetry fan, the album is probably best owned by poetry lovers and those who MUST have anything related to the Princess.
