    The story of Henry the VIII s less well known wives, Katherine Howard and Anne of Cleves, as told by themselves and Jane Boleyn, sister in law of the doomed Queen Anne What Gregory does well is utilize the known history to augment her fiction Her characters might well share the motives of the Tudors Co, and if they don t, well, they re still highly pl...

    You have to hand it to Philippa Gregory she creates a lot of suspense out of a story everyone knows the ending to Normally I don t much go in for historical fiction, but this was available at the library on cd and I had a road trip coming up, so, in the words of Katherine Howard, Voil I was entertained, though not enthralled The novel spans Henry VIII s marriages to Anne of Cleves and Katherine Howard, and is narrated by three women Anne, Katherine, and Lady Rochford Jane Boleyn, siste You have to hand it to Philippa Gregory she creates a lot of suspense out of a story everyone knows the ending to Normally I don t much go in f...

    I m a sucker for Tudor historicals It never gets old reading about the six queens of Henry VIII, and it gives me a serious appreciation for my daily life after reading about the dangers of living in the past Having a tendency to stick my foot in my mouth results in social ostracism these days for me, in the past, I could have been beheaded, raped, drawn, tortured, disemboweled, boiled alive.And i...

    Oh, bad historical fiction, how I love thee I must confess that I had a hard time putting this down, much like its prequel The Other Boleyn Girl To be fair, the historical research is impressive, with the author using the most up to date resources and theories available about the reign of Henry VIII, but stillthe sex scenes The maidens The lack of discussion of politics and historical context Never mind, it was a great read and I m sure I ll reread both books in a couple of years Ha Oh, bad historical fiction, how I love thee I must confess that I had a hard time putting this down, much like its prequel The Other Boleyn Girl To be fair, the historical research is impressive, with the author using the most up to date resources and theories available about the reign of Henry VIII, but stillthe sex scenes The maidens The lack of discussion of politics and historical context Never mind, it was a great read and I m sure I ll reread both books in a couple of years Hah I was already on the author s website yesterday to see if she is writing anything about Henry VIII s last wife, Catherine Parr In short, this novel tells the stories of wives 4 and 5, Anne of Cleves and Katherine Howard Read it after The Other Boleyn Girl, ot...

    I read The Other Boleyn Girl first and that book should bow down to this one The books hardly compare This one is by far the better book Although I greatly enjoyed both, for me this one was told in such a unique way and by women I didn t know much about that it grabbed me from the beginning It tells the story from three different perspectives One unexpected and extremley interesting the wife of Anne Boleyn s brother, now a widow Lady Rochford Jane Boleyn is now a bitter older women wanti I read The Other Boleyn Girl first and that book should bow down to this one The books hardly compare This one is by far the better book Although I greatly enjoyed both, for me this one was...

    Hmmdo I recommend The Boleyn Inheritance NO.Here s why 1 It makes me acutely aware that if I enjoyed this series of Phillipa Gregory books in my youth, that when I get crumbly read old , I ll probably end up enjoying Harlequin Romance novels.2 In The Boleyn Inheritance, as with The Other Boleyn Girl, Ms Gregory writes with such myopic vision that I wanted to scream from the claustrophobic feeling She writes around in circles, covering the same topic repeatedly with only slight variation Hmmdo I recommend The Boleyn Inheritance NO.Here s why 1 It makes me acutely awar...

    I must confess, I was putting off reading this for ages and ages because having three main characters each with different viewpoints felt extremely intimidating and sounded very confusing Ha I needn t have worried Each of these ladies lives is so intertwined with each other that it makes for a REALLY easy read Add the fact that the audiobook is abridged elsewise I would NOT have finished this in a da...

    I picked this up immediately after reading The Other Boleyn Girl, unable to slake my thirst forof Henry VIII and his court I was skeptical, as all should be when embarking on a sequel of any sort, but was pleasantly surprised Divided between three narrators, the evil and half mad Jane Boleyn, the ill fated Katherine Howard, and the strong survivor, Anne of Cleves, the reader gets a new perspective on the fourth and fifth wives...

    Anne of Cleves is one gutsy lady wedded to Henry VIII who is overweight, foul breathed and has a putrid leg, she barely speaks English, about to lose her crown to the slutty and silly little Katherine Howard, trapped in England and deserted by her family does she cave in No, not Anne Anne Boleyn has been a shameful secret in our family for so long, it hardly matters whether she was innocent or not It is not as if I have to follow in her footsteps, it is not as i...
