Brilliant Account of Blood Sweat & Tryany
on 9 August 2015
A Magnificent book as is only ever expected from the wonderful writer historian, Philippa Gregory. This book shows just how hideous
some of those people were, who took it upon themselves to live on the invented term "Royalty" a fallacy made on greed and other peoples blood, sweat, tears, torture and murder. I purchased this book on Kindle and listened to it in one go as I have to rest before going into hospital for a major operation so have lots of time. I had just finished reading a book about Margarets rival the Plantagenet Margaret Pole who took ten hits of the Sword to chop off her head at Tower Hill, plus the first book, 'The White Queen'. All quite gripping reading learning about what selfish people will go through and subject others in order to fufil their fanatical fantasies of being 'Royal'. They all needed a course of intense therapy with a team of psychiatrists. My collection of Philippa Gregory books grows and Amazon is the perfect place to find her work. I enjoy the option of audiobooks listening to a full cast or a good narrator bringing the work alive as well as actually reading the book myself. It takes a few days for the books to arrive but with Kindle, you choose your book and download within seconds. My days of resting are being filled with some fascinating historic reading.
