    Some people read uptight history nerds with nothing better to do like to get their undies in knots over Philippa Gregory s writing and whine about how she takes too many liberties with history Well, guess what She makes it interesting, and since her books are classified as fiction, I think she can be allowed that Also, I consider myself a history nerd, especially when it comes to the Tudors, and I think Gregory s books are gre

    Disclaimer Don t confuse this book with a biography of Mary Boleyn It s fiction all the way It s a good read when you remember that this is fiction and not a blow by blow account of historical events And because it is fiction, Gregory is able to play a little fast and loose with historical fact Mary was most likely the oldest Boleyn child, not the youngest as presented here She had also served the French kings court, just as Anne did

    I picked this one up at work because I want to see the movie hello, Scarlett Johansen and Natalie Portman Yes please , and because I know I ll have thousands of people asking me about it, like with Atonement, which I never read In short, this book sucks It s the worst kind of historical fiction light on the history, and not fun or well written to make up for it The characters are one dimensional, the writing is trite and full of cliches Com

    The thing you must realize about this book is that it is, first and foremost, a novel A novel based on actual historical events, yes, but still a work of fiction So for those that criticize it for its historical inaccuracy, your criticism is misplaced This is not a biography of Mary Boleyn or Anne Boleyn and it doesn t pretend to be.I myself am a bit of a Tudor junkie and love reading both fiction and nonfiction about the family and the times, and I found this

    I love anything that has to do with English History and really am kinda fascinated by Henry VIII After reading so many good things on here and elsewhere about this book I was looking forward to it At about 100 pages into it I thought I really was enjoying it Too bad the book didn t end at page 200 Because I hated this book with a passion I don t even know where to start with it First you have the writing style which is written by Mary Boylen s POV Which is fine But ev

    You ve probably never heard of The Other Boleyn Girl It s not very popular I think a movie got made out of it, but I doubt anyone watched it.Those are the kind of lies, mistruths and distortions that one person can perpetuate when they don t check their facts or worse, intentionally distort the facts Buton that later The Other Boleyn Girl is the story of Mary Boleyn, the could ve been queen courtier during King Henry VIII s tumultuous reign Little is known about Mary, other

    I got through 25 pages of this book and had enough I wrote down literally I had a pen and paper with me after the reading the first page or two so many historical inaccuracies that I thought my head would explode Then I checked out reviews onand realized the book would get much, much worse As strictly a novel, this might be a great book, and I do hope to pick it up again with the mind set that it is strictly fiction because I might be able to enjoy it then But as a book dealing w I

    OK firstly, there s no doubt that Philippa Gregory can write a good story Her prose is engaging and the content fThe Other Boleyn girl was easy to read.However what put me off was the absolute ignorance of historical fact and total villification of Anne Boleyn yes this is a fictional interpretation but now it has made it to the big screen, there are a few who will think this is what really happened.Ms Gregory describes Mary Boleyn as her personal heroine and this bias is clear through the
