it was ok
bookshelves: slow-moving
Read in June, 2008

Politically, it was a very well researched book, however, that is the only angle it took throughout. When reading the title, I imagined "family politics at the court of Henry VIII" and just that. This barely touched the scope of political dealings within the court and the families that ruled said court and dealt more with the politics everywhere else outside of it. It dragged and dragged as a college text tends to do, but I did finish it, learning no more than what I've already learned on the subject through various other works of fiction and non-fiction, too numerous to mention.
