(1617) don t know who was the murderer 2019 This book taught me something about myself I have to have someone to root for in fiction I wasisgusted by the three main characters Eliza. Of England is shaved and clipped to nothing as Elizabeth uncertainly leads her bankrupt country into a war that no one thinks can be wonThen someone acts in secret and for Elizabeth Dudley and the emerging kingdom nothing will be as plannedBlending historical fact with contemporary rumor Philippa Gregory has created a ark and tense novel of Tudor times which casts Elizabeth I in a light no one has suggested before Passionate fearful emotionally needy this is a ueen who will stop at nothi. The Virgin's LoverUthor grows I have watched the movie Elizabeth a time ago and really remembered none of itbut following the history from each book and building on all events in these stories I book and building on all the events in these stories I gained such a wealth of knowledge and appreciation for this period of historySince my knowledge of Elizabeth and her reign of power is very limited pretty m I love Gregory s books and was looking forward to this one because I love to read about Elizabeth I but I was a bit isappointed in the way she is portrayed in this version She comes across as a weak woman who IS LETTING HERSELF BE BULLIED BY THE AMBITIOUS MAN letting herself be bullied by the ambitious man is in love with While I Sedition and Alchemy: A Biography of John Cale don t know that much about Robert Dudley this book makes him seem very selfish andetermined to The (Underground) Railroad in African American Literature do anything to be King of England I also switch between hating his first wife Amy and feeling sorry for her though I think most of the time I feel like she should have seen that Robert was not going to come back to her and gotten on with her life The book was a good book well written interesting to read like all of Gregory s books but I wasisappointed in the way Elizabeth was portrayed This book absolutely enraged me I normally like Phillippa Gregory for a trashy historical read but what she Handbook for Teaching African Literature African Writers did in this novel made me not want to read her any She takes Elizabeth the Great arguably the greatest woman in the history of Western civilization and turns her into a stupid whining weak vapid character There is literally a line in the book something where Elizabeth says something like Oh shut up At least you have a man to make yourecisions for you Boo Hiss AMY ROBSART WAS NOT ILLITERATE The historical record shows that she was well educated and there are letters that were preserved written in her own hand She also was the financial manager of the Robsart estate It bothers me that rather than relying on the historical record Gregory chose to portray Robsart as poorly educated flaky and with no money of her own in order to make her seem Indiras Objective Agronomy MCQs for Agricultural Competitive Examinations dependent on those that surrounded her Gregory also omits Robsart s visit to court in 1559 when she spent a month living in London I understand this is fiction but Gregory is playing wildly fast and loose hereIt also bothered me that none of the female protagonists in this book seem remotely capable of standing on their own two feet Robsart isependent on everyone who comes along and is an absolute ninny and Elizabeth is always wailing to either Cecil or DudleyI kept reading to find out what would happen next so in that way it was engaging However there s not a character in here that you can root for save perhaps Cecil First Instinct ReviewElizabeth Waaaaa I can t rule England without you Robert Come my Sweet I shall pet you and stroke you and rule you and call you GeorgeElizabeth Ooo Lord RobertMe Shut the hell upWith A Little More ThoughtThe verdict after reading The Other Boleyn Girl The Boleyn Inheritance The ueen Ree to marry the ueen; but she cannot prevent him from becoming the favorite and the focus of the feverishly plotting pleasure seeking courtOthers too oppose the marriage but for very ifferent reasons William Cecil the ueen's wisest counselor knows she must marry for policy; her uncle hates Dudley and swears he will be murder him first Behind the triangle of lovers the factions take up their places the Protestants the priests the assassins the iplomats and the moneymakers The very coin. .
