Publisher's Summary

When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of 14, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family's ambitious plots as the king's interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king, and take her fate into her own hands. A rich and compelling tale of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her own heart.

ABRIDGED!!!

How did I not notice that this was an ABRIDGED version?!? I despise abridgements! This book was really good though and the result is that now I want the unabridged version. If I can't find it on audiobook I will buy it to read. A combination of this book and the Showtime drama "The Tudors" has gotten me terribly interested in the life of Henry VIII. I have never liked trashy romance novels partly because they just make me feel stupid but here is one I can feel good about since it is somewhat educational! Too bad it is the ABRIDGED version!

Great book!

This book is fantastic, and once again I wish it were not abridged. This is a great listen after "The Constant Princess", which is almost a continuation of the first story, but told by Mary Boleyn instead of Queen Catherine. I liked the narrator of this audiobook much more than the last one. I preferred Ann Boleyn to Mary in the beginning of the book. But you see the cruelness and blind ambition of Ann as the book goes on, and it is Mary who really grows up into a decent person even if she is a Howard-Boleyn by blood and breeding. I would recommend this book highly.
