Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointment I liked that she tried to tackle this issue that women in history (especially the six wives) have been treated pretty harshly by biographers and historians. That she tried to portray them in a more realistic and humanistic light. But I think she was patting herself on the back too early when I feel like she didn't tackle what she set out for. I think she still had a bias towards the women and that she should have expanded on the different opinions of them and gone deeper into their actions. Instead it seems like she only skimmed the surface and dealt too much on the other things going on in the time. She should have done a biography on Henry because she seemed more fascinated by him then the actual women. I give her the three stars because she tried and it was overall enjoyable but I don't like that she called Anne Boleyn Ann. That was a big issue for me considering she is my historical idol.
