This acclaimed best seller from popular historian Alison Weir is a fascinating look at the Tudor family dynasty and its most infamous ruler. The Six Wives of Henry VIII brings to life England’s oft-married monarch and the six wildly different but equally fascinating women who married him. Gripping from the first sentence to the last and loaded with fascinating details, Weir’s rich history is a perfect blend of scholarship and entertainment.

this book is hard to listen too, boring. No story form. I like the history of the Tudors but this just made me want to fall asleep.

Cinnamon was a princess, a long time ago, in a small hot country, where everything was very old. Cinnamon did not talk. Mango trees, a parrot, and a beautiful room in the palace do nothing to help the teachers who try to make her to speak. Can a man-eating tiger do so, and exactly who will end up in the belly of the beast? This audio is also part of The Neil Gaiman Audio Collection.

Neil Gaiman reads his books for you giving all the enthusiasm of a great author's feeling about the story. Neil likes to imagine a world where Princesses are not helpless females, but capable women. i like his mesmerizing voice and love listening to his children's work with or without my grandchildren.
