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

    Story
    "I enjoyed this much more than The Constant Princes"

    I like this better, for a couple reasons: I like the reader better as she actually read the words with the emotions that were stated in the text. The story line was also better. It was still a little rambling at times and redundant, but less so than the previous. I thought there was lot more intrigue in this story. Of course the story is much more famous, but I enjoyed reading it from Mary's perspective.

    British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.

    Story
    "Thrilling!"

    I could not stop listening as I was fully invested within the first five minutes. It really was a passionate roller coaster of a read. One moment I loved I was totally infatuated with the primary players however only a chapter later I felt so frustrated with them that I wanted to smack their heads together as they were their own worst enemies.

    Again, as with all historical drama one has to remind oneself that the details are not going to be accurate but Ms. Gregory does get her facts correct such as dates and places.
    I did not want this book to end and I must admit that I reached for the Kleenex at its final scene. It was quite a journey.

    A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    "A MUST read!!!"

    I must admit I was not impressed with the movie, I guess that's why I never took an interest in the book before . But I am so glad I picked it this time around. It is so well written. Through the narrative the author is able to place the reader in the time and place. "Seeing", imagining the event taking place. It is so descriptive yet captivating.

    Story
    "Long and sad"

    I knew this would not be a happy book. We already know the ending because it's history. But this story was so long and so sad that I took a break from it for several days. I just couldn't go back to that world for about a week. I also got tired of the court life Mary Boleyn describes. I'm sure it's accurate but I got bored of hearing about parties, masquerades and the court progress.
    The reader is great though so if you think you'd like the book, I can say that the reader is engaging and her voice is pleasant.
