Betrayal in the Tudor Court,
This review is from: Betrayal in the Tudor Court (Paperback)
I am afraid that I am at a complete loss to see any similarities at all with Philippa Gregory - if you enjoy her books and her scholarship then don't expect this book to be in the same league. As a previous reviewer has said there is a very small proportion (probably less than 5%) spent at court so the title is at best inappropriate. What really grated with me was Americanisms and modern words creeping into the text "you've got it figured out" " you fabricated your own death"(first recorded 1779) and "histrionics" (first known use 1864) amongst them
If you want to read a voice which sounds authentic (to my ear anyway) then save your money on this one and for the princely sum of £1.96 more than this book you can buy both Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies from Amazon!
