Read in April, 2011

I am a big fan of Margaret George's previous books and they are re-read annually. Elizabeth 1 follows the latter part of the Queen's reign. I wish I had liked the book more than I did but sadly I didn't like it as well as George's other books.

When discussing it with other readers I have tried to pinpoint what was lacking and all I can really articulate is that it seems more like a summary of historical highlights than an actual novel.

Well, it also suffered from the fact that it is about the latter part of her reign and a lot of the book focuses on people dropping dead left and right.

It was ok. I cannot bring myself to rate it any higher than that though.
