An extraordinary novel that brings into vivid focus the larger-than-life King Henry VIII, monarch of prodigious appetites for wine, women, and song. This is a readable, entertaining, tour de force that captures the essence of the Sixteenth Century, in all its drama and atmosphere. A can't-miss for readers who delight in wonderful historical fiction perfectly rendered.
"It doth brim with lust, violence, cruelty and lively conversation...Margaret George has found a new and fresh way to tell the story."

Not a Boring Narrative
This story is long, but so was Henry's reign. The plus side to George's take on this subject was that it wasn't bogged down by long narrative details. However, it was still richly illustrated and you felt as if you were a fly on the wall observing Tudor drama.
The Autobiography of Henry VIII
Completely Amazing!!! The reader was wonderful and the subject well researched. I just finished and I miss Henry already!
