      I was excited to pick up this book, because recently I ve been interested in stories about Tudor England, but overall it pretty much disappointed me I should ve known not to have high expectations, since it s a novelisation of the TV series but unfortunately, it did suffer because of that.The plot is developed but as far as I can tell, it follows the TV show very closely and doesn t offer much besides that I liked it that there was many details and in general it kept my interest most of the time [...]

      Love, Love, Love I just love this kind of stories that are based or kind of based on the real historical events but are told quite in interesting way I couldn t stop reading it once I got to it It was funny, it was sad, it had lots of emotions and I m sure that I wanna watch the TV serie too because I have never seen it before

      No es un mal libro para aquellos que quieran incursionar en la novela hist rica Su lectura es gil, cinematogr fica incluso, ya que es id ntica a la serie Pero me resulta muy dif cil de aceptar la falta de detalles o incluso errores hist ricos.

      Solitamente amo qualsiasi libro su Enrico VIII e Anna Bolena, ma ho trovato questo piuttosto scarno un libro che sembra pi il copione del telefilm che un vero e proprio libro frettoloso e fatto a scene non avvolge il lettore completamente Prima di leggere questo libro bisogna informarsi sulla storia di Enrico e Anna perch il libro non racconta in dettaglio n i personaggi n la storia Sicuramente mi aspettavo di meglio

      If you love the Showtime show The Tudors, then you should read this book It is a historical fiction novel based on and sometimes is word for word from the first season of The Tudors It is provocative and captivating, just like the show It s a quick read so it s a great beach read or for when you want to escape for awhile.If you are not a fan of the show or have never seen it but are interested in historical fiction or novels based off of shows or movies, then you will probably like this book Thi [...]

      Based on The Tudors tv show this book essentially documents the period of Henry VIII s split with Katherine of Aragon and infatuation with Anne Boleyn I happened to turn on the TV and saw one of the episodes from this book and actually it appears that the author has taken the dialogue directly from the screenplay and has simply added a little extra detail to provide a context Whilst it was an easy read and good for getting to grips with the complexities of the different relationships and charact [...]

      I have always been fascinated by the English Royalty Monarchy Including the English Monarch Henry VIII who had many wives in which two of them were beheaded Anne Boelyn was the second wife of Henry VIII and the mother of Queen Elizabeth I She was executed beheaded on false charges of adultery that the King had put against her so he could re marry Anne was not able to give him a son because they died within seconds of birth Anne promised King Henry a son and failed so she was disposed of.

    11. Laura on said:

      This is a novelization of the first season of the Showtime series The Tudors As with most if not all TV and film novelizations it s pretty much a standard retelling of what was filmed, with a few additional scenes It s an easy read true, however, it doesn t add anything to the overall experience There is nothing gained here in terms of characterisation, historical context, or even dramatic content that makes it differ from the show You could just as easily watch the series and have the exact exp [...]

      I watched the TV series and then realized there were books to accompany it I enjoyed both, but if you ve seen the TV show, then the books are nothing new They may add just a tiny bit depth or reason for something they did on the show, but not much.Overall, the writing was okay, sometimes it s hard to imagine the characters and the language acting quite like they do It certainly doesn t paint Henry in a very good light at all Interesting, easy read.

      Het boek leest heel vlot, maar is toch niet het sterkste in het ruime aanbod Tudorboeken Er komen te veel korte sc nes in voor, waardoor de spanning wat ontbreekt Sommige van die sc nes hadden best geschrapt kunnen worden, zonder aan belang in te boeten.

      This was a DNF for me I saw that many others had given this book 5 stars, but after a third of the way through, I still wasn t that intrigued, so I returned it to the library.

      Het was een ok boek Een boek om te lezen als je wilt ontspannen en niet te veel wilt na denken.

      It was astonishingly close to the series I enjoyed it, but I think I would have liked it if I haven t watched the series recently.
