FANTASTIC book, learn history and be entertained!!!,
This review is from: The Other Boleyn Girl (Paperback)
I have Philippa Gregory to thank for my new interest in history. It was a snooze in high school and now I am hooked on the stories and am learning about history too. I started with "The Constant Princess" which was an OK start, but then moved the "The Other Boleyn Girl" got hooked, and had to go on to The Boleyn Inheratance" and "The Queens Fool" - ALL great stories.
I am now driven to learn as much about the British monarchy and other European monarchy as I can and am reading other authors to fill in other time frames. Still, Philippa is consistently the best (although there may be better stories on Elizabeth than "The Virgin's Lover"). Great period movies to see AFTER you are hooked are Elizabeth I (the HBO version is my favorite) and Queen Margo (French film). I got my friends hooked on Philippa too, so there is something interesting here, it's not just me.
