2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 30 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Poyson Garden: An Elizabethan Mystery (Hardcover)
This story is set in the time period before Elizabeth is queen. Her sister, Mary, hates her and someone is poisoning Elizabeth's relatives. It took me about a month to read it simply because I would fall asleep everytime I picked it up.
While Elizabethan history is always interesting, I thought this book was rather slow. The idea for the story was great, but the plot trudged along sluggishly.
The supporting characters weren't at all interesting. Jinks, Ned Topside and Meg were too one-dimensional. The reader doesn't get to know them very well. I didn't really care about them like I probably should have. Having Elizabeth run around in boys' outfits was almost silly.
There were a few suspenseful moments, but for the most part it was dull. I didn't realy care if she found who was killer was or not. Overall, the book was mildly interesting.
