    In the ruthless arena of King Henry VIII's court, only one man dares to gamble his life to win the king's favor and ascend to the heights of political powerEngland in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. If the king dies without a male heir, the country could be destroyed by civil war. Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of twenty years, and marry Anne Boleyn.

    S. Marie says: "A unique perspective of history"
    "Worst reader ever"
    Overall

    Readers can make or break a book, and if I could, I would not give this book a single star. The reader was terrible. He was unable to highlight the transitions from dialogue to description. As a result, the intricacies of the plot and supporting dialogue were lost. Think: speaking with rocks in the mouth with a monotone voice. What a shame for a Man Booker prize winning book to be "showcased" in such a terrible way. Plot? Rich with it, but impossible to follow due to the ham-handed way the production was made.
