I must admit I was not impressed with the movie, I guess that's why I never took an interest in the book before . But I am so glad I picked it this time around. It is so well written. Through the narrative the author is able to place the reader in the time and place. "Seeing", imagining the event taking place. It is so descriptive yet captivating.
I knew this would not be a happy book. We already know the ending because it's history. But this story was so long and so sad that I took a break from it for several days. I just couldn't go back to that world for about a week. I also got tired of the court life Mary Boleyn describes. I'm sure it's accurate but I got bored of hearing about parties, masquerades and the court progress.
The reader is great though so if you think you'd like the book, I can say that the reader is engaging and her voice is pleasant.
This is a fabulous book and reading performance. I couldn't stop listening.
The story is fascinating.
I love this book. I have read and re-read it and now listened to it. One of the few books I can read over and over again.
