Still in the mood for reading non-fiction, so I picked this up to test out whether I like Alison Weir's work. She's written a lot of books about this period, which I'm interested in, so... Anyway, it's a very short book, since it was written for the 'quick reads' series. That's really what hampers it: there's not much by way of analysis, just a simplistic recounting of facts, most of which I knew. I think I found the account of Lady Jane Grey most interesting: Alison Weir sees her with sympathy, and told me details I didn't already know about her life and her outlook.

Overall, though, too short and simplistic to be really interesting.
