The Other Boleyn Girl [DVD] [2003]
The Other Boleyn Girl [DVD] [2003]
Dvd ~ Natascha McElhone
Price: 4.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Boleyn survivor, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Philippa Gregory and so much enjoyed this book. So many history books make Mary Boleyn out to be a dolt and easy meat. I do not believe she was such a fool having read this and anyway all of her books take you right into the period as if you are there and you see actions from a different perspective. Mary Boleyn survived, many other of her scheming family did not.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Hilary I just dont like your writing style, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wolf Hall (Paperback)
Thomas Cromwell, I know less about him than when I started and her style of writing is extremely difficult to relax and enjoy. Both books, this one and Bring up the Bodies show what a monster Henry VIII became and TC enable it, apart from that it is very boring sadly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thomas Cromwell, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bring Up the Bodies (Paperback)
I really wanted to enjoy this book and learn about the Tudors under Cromwell but I just don't like the way she writes, I kept getting confused about who was speaking and it made it such hard work as I so enjoy a good read. After Wolf Hall I thought I had got to grips, even though I didn't enjoy it, perhaps too intellectual for me.

This review is from: Christmas Angel [DVD] (DVD)
The cast list on the front was irrisistable and I was very much looking forward to a good watch especially snow and Christmas, should have wondered why I hadn't heard of it before. It is extremely boring, apart from Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie, but they are only on screen for a very short time, cannot recommend at all

4.0 out of 5 stars Talking watch, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The watch works as it says, easy to read and hear the time, it is a shame when it talks on the hour it cannot it silenced for night times so I have to put it in the naughty drawer. It did take over a week to arrive which for a very small package seems a long time and also it was outside of its presentation box which could have given rise to damage which was rather strange. Overall I am very pleased.

The Boleyn Inheritance
The Boleyn Inheritance

Price: 3.50

5.0 out of 5 stars The wives up to Catherine Howard of Henry VIII and him, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Boleyn Inheritance (Paperback)
Philippa Gregory never fails to turn around established ideas and historical detail and make you feel like you are actually there and rethink what you had taken as read. Stopped at Anne of Cleves outliving him and not enough about Elizabeths early years. I always enjoy her Plantagenet/Tudor books and hate it when they end!
