The Boleyn Inheritance (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels, #10)
Jun 13, 2007
Philippa Gregory dropped the ball on this one. This book covers the reigns of Henry VIII's fourth and fifth wives, Anne of Cleves and Catherine Howard. I have enjoyed most of her other books covering the Tudor years in England, but here she leans on the device of having three narrators to lengthen a less-developed story by having them repeat the same ideas over and over. If I had a nickel for every time a character mused some version of "Henry VIII is a selfish, smelly, fat tyrant with a noxious leg wound," I'd be a rich woman.
