SO!! This one is one that had me by my heart strings… I was pulled in so many different directions! I even sat and contemplated how to do a review because there was just so much in this.
Firstly, the only negative that I have. This is quite a long book. For someone that has learned a great deal about The Tudors some of the passages seemed a bit tedious. For someone new to the story and to their grand way of life however, I think every word is probably needed! For me though, it was just a tad on the long side.
Now to the positives! First, Philippa Gregory’s writing. Once again she dazzles with words in a way that few other authors can do. She has brought this court life alive and I can easily see and feel what she is talking about.
I also really enjoyed that this wasn’t about all of the Tudors but mainly about Mary. As the narrator of the story we only know what Mary knows and what she feels. This leaves a lot open for interpretation when it comes to Anne and the rest of her family but we know exactly how Mary feels and I just loved that.
I was surprised at just how conniving Anne really was. I mean at every point in her life she is working to better herself and her family but it was herself first and foremost. She is greedy and dishonest and it really showed. But still I feel for her even as I judge her. She went to high and could not see what she was doing to herself before it was way too late.
In short: I think Philippa Gregory yet again wrote a masterpiece filled with charms and poison. It’s a fabulous yet such a sad read.
Now? Ummm, no thank you. Anytime that you have to throw herbs and plants and herbs on the floor to keep fleas and body odor down, brush your hair nightly with a lice comb and no one brushes their teeth? I'll stick to the books.
And The Other Boleyn Girl is a masterfully written piece of fiction! Once again Phillipa Gregory brings to life the story of a young girl, used by her family to achieve their greatest desires without any thought of her or what she wants or what's happening to her.
When they believe she's no longer effective in furthering their rise they turn to her more ambitious sister and after that no one's safe. Anne Boleyn, through the king, tears their entire belief system to shreds, and when she is finally at the top, standing on the mangled remains of her country, family and her life, only then is she happy...Well almost. Find out just how crazy she becomes & how far she will to try to hold onto her reign as queen and the fates of her and those who were most loyal to her.
Maybe one of the Boleyn girls will survive a life forced upon her by her scheming, power-hungry relatives. Even though they taught her & honestly believe that as a girl she's no better than their most lowly serpent. Can Mary Boleyn break away from their influence and survive?
