    I really enjoyed this book! It is fascinating to have a window into how Henry VIII ended up with six wives, their lives together and ultimately their ends. If you are any way interested in the Tudors, this book is a must for you!

    Loved this book. Very informative. The Narrator was stunning to listen to and the content was fascinating. If you are a fan of stories of the Tudors then i would certainly recommend this

    I could not stop listening!

    I thought the book to be enjoyable. I agree with others...............the narrator was very good. I learned a lot about 18th century England, sometimes too much! I had to keep referring to Wikipedia to keep all of the characters straight.

    I really enjoyed the history of all the queens in one book from beginning to end - highly recommended!

  • Gary G.

    This history of a critical time in western civilization is presented in a very logical, informative, and interesting way. The narration adds to the entertainment value of the book. I was particularly interested in the complex relationship that Henry had with the Catholic church and how that led to the schism that became the Church of England.Anyone with an interest in world history would really appreciate this account.


    Strictly a historical account of the wives and daughters of Henry VIII.


    Very informative. Kept it interesting and not boring which some of these can. Great narrator. Loved his voice and his tone. Strongly recommend if interested in the Tudor dynasty.

  • Stephen T.

    The reputation of the male of the title doesn't come out of this very well.

  • Linda B

    Though this isn't a novel or anything and I knew the fates of all 6 women I was glued to my phone listening to this. I learned a lot but it moved like a story. I didn't feel like your traditional history book. Definitely recommend if you love the Tudor period like I do! And the narrator was excellent.
