Overview

The Tudors is an intimate, delicious, and daring drama revealing the early years of Henry VIII, an idealistic, lustful tyrant torn between bedding wives and mistresses and conquering Europe. This is not the story of the old, fat Henry you've read about in history books.

At eighteen, the throne and the entire world became his. Young, sexy, and the most powerful man of his time, the king was known for his good looks and athletic prowess. He was so arrogant that he despised dealing with the consequences of his actions. King Henry executed people with little excuse, and single-handedly tore apart the Roman Catholic Church, the most powerful institution in medieval Europe.

Passionate, vibrant, and scandalous, he forever altered the course of history. The Tudors, a Showtime Original Series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, brings to life Henry's tumultuous early years in exquisite fashion.

THE BOOK ALSO INCLUDES a foreward by Michael Hirst, creator and executive producer, eight pages of lush, full-color photos, detailed essays about the Tudor era and dynasty

Tune into The Tudors on Showtime — Sundays at 10pm starting April 1st

This nook "book" is not being sold under the correct title. It is not a book, it is the first five scripts from the TV series. I was expecting to read a book but once I open this on my nook it said it was the first five scripts. Barnes and Nobel really can not expect someone to read the fine print that is fuzzy on the bottom picture of the book. This was way to much to pay for a script. I would not recommend this to anyone!

Wish I could return this!! It is not a book like I was lead to believe. VERY disappointed!! It only got one star because I was unable to leave it with no stars.

This show and the book are exciting, suspenseful, and enteraining with a great vhistorical background. The basic information and even most of the drama is based on what really happened in the court of King Henry the Eigthth. If you read this book looking for a little excitement, just know that you should get ready for a roller coaster! >TUDOR FAN< -R.A.P.
