The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
At one point in the story, the Queen refers to reading Henry James as "tedious" - a sentiment which sums up most of my feelings about "The Uncommon Reader." While there were thoughtful reflections on the unique nature of life as the monarch and the paradigm shifts that come with being an avid reader, I still felt as though there were missed opportunities for this story to really blossom into something memorable.
