Dull., 14 Nov. 2012
I found this book to be a dull and disappointing read, as a historical figure Mary Boleyn has been passed over often as little more than a foot note and with this book Alison Weir made me wish she had done the same. The few scraps of information she has have been nailed to a framework of more interesting people and all in all you end up wishing you were reading about them instead. I put the book down knowing no more about it's subject than when I picked it up and that's where this book really fails, there is so little to be said about Mary that the rest of the book seems like padding without which the author could never have claimed to have enough knowledge of the ' Other Boleyn Girl ' to fill a book this size.
