3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth Ann Guerra on 5 Oct. 2009
Format: Hardcover
The First Elizabeth is a rivoting read for anyone interested in British History and / or the history of the Anglican Church. Author Carolly Erickson vividly portrays the key personalities who were so much apart of Eliabeth's glorious reign. Good guys, bad guys - sweet Elizabeth, cunning coniving Elizabeth - her friends her foes, her lovers and her various suitors - its all there from the marriage of Anne Bolynn through to Elizabeth's lonely death bed.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 3 July 1999
Format: Hardcover
Having read more than half-a-dozen previous biographies on Elizabeth 1, I found carolly Erikson's by far the best.
Easy to understand and beautifully written, this book not only goes into what Elizabeth was like as a ruler and a person, but delves into relevant aspects of the normal lives of Tudor individuals.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Christine Ellis on 3 April 2006
Format: Paperback
Following on from the BBC drama The Virgin Queen, I wanted to see more about her, her life and her times. This book more than satisfied my interest. Whilst I'm not generally into books which relate to history, this book has me hooked! It's packed full of fantastic detailed information about the life of not only Elizabeth 1, but her Royal Court also. A really detailed insight into the running of the Royal Courts and the way in which "traitors" or those who displeased the Queen were treated and despatched. Vivid descriptive writing. Crammed full of facts, yet you feel you are with Elizabeth all the way through. This book is filled with passion, fire and loyalty. This Queen was a very complex lady, much admired, but she ruled her courts with a rod of iron. Easy to read book, hard to put down! Go on - get yourself a copy!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Was pleased with promptness, and it was for a gift. Although the person it was for has kept it, he wasn't too pleased with the stale smell on the book. It was supposed to be new and unused but wherever it had been stored was likely to be the reason for the odour. Hopefully it will pass in time, thank you.

Format: Paperback
This book was wonderfully written, and portrayed the life and times of Queen Elizabeth 1. This book was masterfully written and included all the information I needed to write my essay. The only flaw I found was it could have explained more of Elizabath's childhood and younger years, otherwise, it was very wonderful
