Read from December 13 to 22, 2012
Audiobook read by Susan Lyons. So much better than either of the film adaptations. Written from Mary Boleyn's POV, the book takes a very unflattering stand on Anne Boleyn and incorporates many of the legends that have been proven false. But because it focuses on Mary instead of Anne, it's still a great story.
It was really easy for me to listen to this book. I have an hour commute to and from work, so I listen to audiobooks for entertainment and this book had me looking forward to it!
I loved that I had to keep reminding myself that this book is fiction because the author does such a good job.
I thought she did a great job so I can't say that I have a favorite.
Mary Boleyn. ..she was misunderstood....but very loyal to het family...
I look for books that she narrate...she brings you in to the book
Anne had to let go of her true love Henry Percy it was just awful The pain she demonstrate is heart wrenching.
I highly recommend this book it was absolutely wonderful and the narration was just outstanding
The reader is Australian and her accent grates with very word she utters: exaggerated 'posh' English, attempting and failing to disguise the oz. can't go on listening: if you know what a British accent sounds like, avoid this reader (unless she's reading an Aussie or nz book)
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
I had never read the book!
I had heard a lot about this book! Great listen!
How women thought back then.
yes, she does a very good job in all of them.
I was constantly being shocked by how awful all of the Boleyns were! They are all crazy, some absolutely hateful, but can't seem to stay away from each other!
Mary Boleyn. She comes across as such a victim who doesn't belong in the mix of all of these other despicable people, but she has her dark sides as well.
Not sure, but I do like her as the narrator for this one. Fun accent
I knew Henry VIII was mad, but apparently everyone was!
This is a book of historical fiction filled with lots of drama, intrigue, and bouts of lust. Although I know how the real story unfolds, it is alluring to read it from an imaginative perspective.
Since I have never read this type of historical fiction, I cannot compare it.
This is the first time I have listened to Susan Lyons, and I don't think it will be the last. She is an animated and expressive performer. Lyons did an excellent and believable job on all the voices.
Sex, Lies, and the Tudors
This is a great listen, a bit long, but it makes the story stronger.
