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.

    "Feminine Historic Persoective"

    As a fan of historical fiction, I really enjoyed this book. It was well written, well read, and gave me an interesting glimpse into gender and politics during King Henry's rule.

    "Decent story, albeit off a bit"
    If you could sum up The Other Boleyn Girl in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed the story telling and the narration, though this version did a great deal to demonize a well loved queen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Other Boleyn Girl?

    Enjoyed the version of love between Mary and William Stafford

    Story
    "Historical Kardishans"

    First, this book is fictional, it's loosely based off of historical events. The characters were real British aristocrats, but the story was awfully long. I like how the author flipped it the character that should be shamed, the King's whore is empathize with and exonerated and the character that was supposed to be glorified, was shamed. It was a unique approach.6

    "Vicious games a Queen plays"

    Ms. Lyons did a wonderful job with the narration. she made the story go by quickly and smoothly. Even in the end I did not feel sorry for Ann Boleyn.

    Story
    "Wonderfully done!"
    Where does The Other Boleyn Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks highly. I am interested in the history surrounding Henry VIII though, and I think that may play a factor in liking the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have always found Anne interesting, so probably her.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Lyons – was your favorite?

    Anne.

    "❤"

    really enjoyed the mix of history and fiction. Felt like I was back in time and was friends with the Boleyn and Howard family championing and despising both sisters and George at various points in the story.

    "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.
