The King's Speech

This is about the book, not the movie.  Not that I knew there was a book before a few days ago, but still.  I was glad to discover and read it since everyone raves about the movie and I haven't been able to see it.

Anyway, I liked the book.  I suspect it was more about Lionel Logue than the movie was, and I liked that his son wrote it.  The pacing was a little uneven though, and sometimes it felt like they were just trying to get it published so the timing would match the movie.  I'd also have liked to read more about Logue's methods which his son said he found in the journals.  But overall, I liked it.
