2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By W Greenhalf on 25 Oct. 2013
Format: Paperback
This is not a light or easy read and there is an assumption that the reader comes with a fairly extensive prior knowledge of the subject (I am afraid I let the author down in this respect). However, it is wonderful to see that perhaps Henry was not an air head ruled from his pantaloons, falling in love like a puppy dog for every bit of skirt. Instead he is shown to be a manipulative and sinister character with very cerebral imperatives - personally I found this both more credible and far more interesting.

I surprise myself in writing this, but actually I would have liked more about his wives, their politics and their religion. Catherine is discussed in some detail, but I found myself left curious about what were Anne Boleyn's views on the reformation. I'd also have liked to know a little bit about where her father actually stood in this matter.

It is worth the effort to read through and at the end you will have a warm glow of achievement and you will know a lot more about this well known but often over romanticized period of English history.

The book arrived promptly and in the condition stated by the seller. I have not read much so far, but teh depth of knowledge and ideras of the author are astonishingly good and give a very broad coverage of all aspects, virtually, of the Reformation. As a clinician used to science texts and papers until recently, I do find the author's style a little verbose and the ideas a little difficult to follow, at times, in this book. Very well worth having and buying, though, overall.

Everyone's Favorite Monarch! 25 Jun. 2014
By SFBook Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Heavy in content but gives a clear picture of Henry VIII"s reign. The author's bias towards Henry VIII, overall his love for Tudor England, does not cloud the narrative prose as does some historical biographies. A great, intense and long read of everyone's favorite monarch.
