I opted for the abridged version of this book because several reviewers said the unabridged version was too long and repetitive. I found the abridged version just right. Even though I've read several books on Tudor history, this book revealed some new insights about the two queens.
But... a book like this is probably better in printed form. Since the writer is comparing and contrasting their relationship, she often jumps quickly from one queen to another. I found that if I wasn't totally alert, I'd miss the switch and have to rewind. So I don't recommend listening to this while driving or distracted.
Still, it's a fascinating book that I can highly recommend if you are interested in Elizabethan or Tudor Era history.
