Why, oh why do I not read more historical fiction? Even though I majored in history, I find that I am woefully ignorant about this period of history. Granted I focused on American history, but these Tudors and their relatives--man, I thought my family could be weirdly disfunctional. Jane Grey is a truly tragic figure--her fate was set in motion before she was born, and nothing she did would have changed it. I think there's a movie (with Helena Bonham Carter) that I need to see now. I'll be looking for more to read about the Tudors...any recommendations?
I really enjoyed this read. It made me consider new ways of looking at informaton/life and helped me to consider (again) that things are not always as we think or have been told they are. The book reminded me to ask many questions in order to come to my own conclusions.
