Readers with a fair knowledge of Shakespeare’s works will more likely enjoy this as it contains a good amount of quotes and references, although the verbal tête-à-tête between characters usually includes enough of an explanation to read between the lines. I felt a bit at a disadvantage at first, for not having read the first book. There are many of Dolly’s family, friends, and co-workers introduced in the opening chapters that may have been featured in Six of One, but were information overload for readers just jumping in with Seven Will Out. A few short chapters in, however, and any Tudor fan feels right at home.
With its supernatural element and brow-raising, albeit fictional revelations, this will not appeal to all Shakespeare and Tudor enthusiasts (i.e. the purists). It is, however, a clever series of facts that fit together surprisingly neatly, and the laugh-out-loud quips and antics of the characters keep the reader otherwise entertained throughout the story. I highly recommend this book to light-hearted Tudor fans looking to step away from the plethora of traditional reads of the genre.
Then, add Ms. Spears writing style that flows smoothly and easily from page to page into the mix, and you can definitely count this book as a winner. However, if you are a hard core lover of Tudor History, and have no sense of humor, and nitpick every historical fiction book there is out there, than this is probably not the book for you! If you are looking for a fun read, that will allow you to escape into a past that is not morbid and dark, than definitely grab this book! I give it a FIVE out of FIVE stars!
That being said, one can't help but enjoy Spear's book. It's meant to be fun, poking fun of the seriousness of the Tudor period and the people (like me) who are obsessed with it. You can't take Seven Will Out seriously, and the things that Spear's thinks of for her characters make the book worth reading, and if she ever comes out with a third, you'll bet I'll read that one too! It's great fun to see the ladies let down their hair and just have fun (see, after reading her book i can't help but come up with bad lines, too!)
