Hold your head

The 2 least known wives of the fat, old, slovenly, smelly, constipated, and unable to perform Henry VIII. What a ghastly picture of him. This book was fabulous. Doubt if you see this on "Tudors", but indeed this is a part of English History you may not have heard of, at...
The 2 least known wives of the fat, old, slovenly, smelly, constipated, and unable to perform Henry VIII. What a ghastly picture of him. This book was fabulous. Doubt if you see this on "Tudors", but indeed this is a part of English History you may not have heard of, at least I didn't. Ms. Gregory is exceptional in taking you to the many castle of the King, and especially the "Tower". This is a must for anyone interested in Tudor history. The author has set up the book so that each chapter is narrated by a different woman, and tied in to each other brilliantly. Hold onto your head!

Yet another poor look at some of Henry's wives, by this author...

Phillipa Gregory is a bad writer. Period. She makes a joke of this period in time with her awful writing. By far the worst book I've read by her, or anyone else that has written anything about Tudor England. I would only recommend this book to people who favor daytime T...
Phillipa Gregory is a bad writer. Period. She makes a joke of this period in time with her awful writing. By far the worst book I've read by her, or anyone else that has written anything about Tudor England. I would only recommend this book to people who favor daytime TV to reading -- because at best, that is all this shallow, not-very-historical-but-very-soap-opera, poorly written dramafest is...the written equivalent of Jerry Springer. How insulting, that she is hailed as 'The First Lady of Historical Fiction'

    A must read

    Great book! Highly recommend. Easy reading. Page turner. Tells history through the eyes of true life people. History come alive.

    A waste of time

    I don't really have many opportunities to read. So when I finally pick up a book, I can only hope that it's time well spent. This book was not. It was slow, pointless and not interesting. By the time I finished it, I was frustrated that I had waste several hours. I would not recommend this to anyone.
