Enjoyed it

I really enjoyed this book --
Loved Gregory's writing style --
Although there were many liberties taken with historical
facts, I still found this read gave me a bit of insight into
the whole Henry, Anne, Mary, Boleyn, Seymour "thing"--

Smart and Captivating

Very well-written. Seems historically sound. It draws you in and is hard to put down. The novel is truly shocking at times as you believe these are well bred ladies and gentlemen who do no wrong...not always the case.

Read this book, skip the movie

I read this book because I was interested in seeing the movie, but didn't get to it while it was in the theaters. Now I realize I liked the book enough that the film is sure to be a disappointment. The depiction of Henry VIII here is pretty accurate to other portrayals of him that I have read. Henry is petty, childish, and selfish--a completely unlikable person.

A fun read overall. It gave me a hankering for more historical fiction, so I plan to check out a few of Ms. Gregory's other books in the Tudors series.

I loved this book!!

I thought the book stayed close to historical fact, and loved that it shed light on another facet of the Henry /Anne relationship. It brought the characters to life, made them be real people instead of jst "historical" figures!!

Wow

I picked the book up out of curiosity created over the film. Couldn't put it down until I was finished. You know the people -- you know their end -- the best part is the tale the Phillipa Gregory spins to get you from point A to point B. Awesome historical fiction!
