Great Historical Read

There is no doubt Alison Weir is a royalist. That in no way takes away from the historical work she is doing. As a fan of history, I believe her work on the British royal families is some of the most intriguing and provocative work I have read. The footnotes and sourcin...

The information is well organized and makes for a great read. Highly recommended.

    Leaves much to be desired

    Picking up this book in hopes of becoming more familiar with a seemingly larger than life man, a reader can be dissapointed. Very few of the first one hundred pages of the book have anything to do with a chronological life history of Henry VII. I am now very well aquainted with the things he owned, the etiquette at his court, and the hundreds of names of those who surounded him, but Henry remained a mystery to me to the very end. I found myself skipping paragraphs describing the work he funded for his many properties hoping that it would become a more interesting read. Unfortunatly, it didn't. It is very well researched but as a biography, it leaves me hunting for another book.
