This is not a sanitized version of history. Deception and treachery smeared throughout the generations. Brutal, but interesting.
If you love history, you gotta listen to this book. Fantastic research and writing and narration.
I enjoyed this overview of the Tudor period and the narration was good but some mispronunciations of English towns which is fair enough when you’re not from England
I enjoy this work more than I anticipated. So well written and crammed full of historically information presented in an easy to follow and understand format. The narration is also just splendid
Great book … gave a fantastic insight into Tudor life in general as well as royalty
I enjoyed reading the history of a faction of the royal family. It’s interesting to see how protective of family lines they were. It’s still true today…it’s about power. It is lengthy but I find history reveals much about who we are today.
I'm enjoying the stories; especially because they're true; but a paper version of this book would probably be better. I'd like to be able to look back and remind myself who is being referenced (so many people named Henry, Elizabeth, Edward, Margaret, John).
Highly interesting with some graphic details.
