Publisher's Summary

When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of 14, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both the golden prince and her growing role as an unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family's ambitious plots when the king's interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her powerfully ambitious sister, Anne Boleyn. As Mary watches Anne manipulate her rise to the throne, Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king and take her fate into her own hands.

A rich and compelling tale of love, ambition, lust, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the very center of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her heart.

©2011 Philippa Gregory (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

    "Addicting"

    I had previously read this book years ago so already I loved the story but listening to it was simply addictive. I found myself refusing to turn it off. Definitely would recommend.

    "Best book I've listen to in quite some time"

    I loved this book! I loved the shows The Tudors and Reign. This was very complimentary.

    "Surprising new look at Anne Boleyn"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have always loved historical novels & this was awesome. Of course I would recommend it if you aren't afraid to change your old perceptions of Henry the VIII's second wife.


    What about Susan Lyons’s performance did you like?

    The performance was great too. Susan Lyons really brought the characters to life


    Any additional comments?

    When I finished it I couldn't wait to start the next Philippa Gregory book!

    "George Boleyn was gay?"

    This is the first time that I heard that the Boleyn son was gay. It was good to learn a little more about Mary Boleyn. I would enjoy a book on her life after court.

    "Uh, I don't think so."

    The story is interesting enough, though overly Harlequin Romance for my taste. But given that there is an actual history here, this is way, way more fiction than historical. There's taking some liberty to fill in some blanks, and then there's just making almost the whole thing up. Why not just write fiction without the historical names? Anne Boleyn poisoned three people, maybe five, maybe more? Really?

    "Great book, great narrator."

    What a fantastic take on a fascinating subject. That old King Henry was a tyrant, but I found her family to be just as bad. This novel really highlights how the women in the Boyleyn family are used as pawns to advance the family's position with the king.
    Definitely worth a listen.

    "Good Book"

    Good read, but I sped up the narration because the person doing the narration pauses were too long for my taste.
