As a Plum fan this is a rehash ..nothing new.
Storyline was a rehash of several others.
the characters remaining the same.
I loved the Plum books. This is a retelling of the same story. Nothing and no one has changed. You don't have to buy this NEW book, you can read any of the others for the same basic plot and characters. I am returning this one.
One of the worst books in a long time. Bought it on sale, NO bargain. Production is flawed and annoying. There is no story really.
Yes, Yes, Yes
Very much so.
If you like this genre try another book.
I thought I knew Elizabeth 1 of England but this book convinced me of how much more I did not know. An enjoyable, well researched book. NOTE: She is Elizabeth 1st of England
The United Kingdom did not exist during this period. Elizabeth 2nd is an error.
Yes, I am opinionated
Your favorite Tudor period biography.
Gives all of the human beings in this book interest and color.
I have listened several times
A pleasure, a bit like hot chocolate, its addictive.
This book captires you in every way. I have relistened several times.
Henry of course! I KNOW what he was really like, truly evil a really bad human being. BUT this book has a way of hooking your interest and keeping it. Very well researched. For me a book has to be well researched and this one is.
I loved the narration, beautifully done.
A GREAT listen
An good story line and as usual I enjoyed Banks BUT there is so many instances of drinking and one night stands in the Banks books that is does distract from the overall story line. If you added it all up the amount of alcohol consumed makes it a cast of drunks. I was born and grew up in Scotland and we do have alcohol and alcoholics but NOT to this extent.
Any of the Inspector Banks series
It was O.K.
Thinking about drunk drivers in every chapter.
I like and read the series. I just wish it was a bit more true to life
One of my favorite writers
Yes I would reccommend this book
thos in which her childhood is exoplored
Onne of my favorite writer very good research
Sound research, hgighly entertaining
Autobiography of Henry V111 by Margaret George
I would if I had 50 hours! But I could listen to it more than once
A good satisfactory "read"
Astory that is NEW not a rehash for the updated bodice ripper
Tell me an interesting story. Sex and violence is not eonugh
Not for me
I would hesitate to buy another book by this author
Ian Rankin yes, Samuel Gilliess NO
Hard to get by the narrators cheesy Standard Broadcast English accent. For the record I was born in Scotland. His Scots dialect is,not too bad but when he switches to an English dialect....Oh go away Mr. Gillies
not up to Rankin's other books in this series. BUT I would listen again WITHOUT Mr Gillies
I am a history buff. The author obviously needs to go back and study the subject.
It is insulting to present this as a book with ANY research on the subject behind it.
