As a member of the Richard lll Society I am always a little wary of new works about the king - often very romantic & fanciful. So I found this one quite refreshing. Richard is depicted as a 'real' person on the historical stage, and also likeable without being too attractive - he has flaws which are all too evident. His relationship with Anne & his family/friends are skillfully and empathically drawn. But it is a good read - a page turner, bringing the events to life. Overall I enjoyed the book although the ending was rather confused and left the reader unsure as to meaning. After such a detailed telling of Richard's death with such heightened emotion, I was left hanging with the question, Well what next? Why did More tell this version of his story?
