This is not one of my favorite Philippa Gregory books, but it is entertaining enough. That said, I would have enjoyed it much more if the narration had not been so shrill.
The story is unremarkable, giving way to the terribly obvious attempts at proper elocution from the narrator. I do not recommend.
The story line and narration are fabulous - you won't be able to put this one down!

Philippa Gregory does it again. Using a fictional character enables her to track two well known women in history in the same book - Queen Mary and Princess Elizabeth. Great narration.
A great book on many levels. Interesting subject, great characters, and very well read. I highly recommend!
As you listen to this book you can't help but start to feel that you know this main character like a friend and when the book ends you feel as if you've lost one. I couldn't stop listening and rooting for him the entire time. You'll grieve when it's over.
I did not like this book. If you want something that will haunt you because it's gross, then read it.
Jon spares no one, least of all himself. The stories are all refreshingly funny and had me laughing alone in my kitchen.
I read this book before seeing the movie, and I am so glad that I did because the two are really nothing like each other. The book delves deeper into the clinical relationship between Patrick and his psychiatrist, as well as his relationships with his family and friends. Really, all relationships in the book had more layers, which became a more two dimensional in the movie. If you already saw the movie, you won't be bored by the book, which even has a different ending.
