    Mary, Katherine, and Jane Grey---sisters whose mere existence nearly toppled a dynasty and altered a nation's destiny---are the captivating subjects of Leanda de Lisle's new book. The Sisters Who Would Be Queen breathes fresh life into these three young women, who were players and victims in the violent and vicious world of Tudor power politics and whose heirs could otherwise be ruling England today.

    Overall

    This book was more like a very boring high school history lesson than an entertaining read. It is full of names, dates and facts which as a history buff I enjoyed but was not what I was expecting at all.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Gilbert’s story?

    This was the most self indulgent, self centered, holier than thou piece of literature I have ever had the displeasure to "read". I kept hoping it would get better but it never did, she just kept droning on and on.....
