I found the story fascinating and while history buffs might miss all the goings on in state... It was the most interesting part to me.. Personal lives and personal practices of the time. The narrator was great.! Loved it! I was sad when it was over... Wanted the author and narrator to bring me up to present day.

Beautifully written and wonderfully read, I found this book completely compelling! Every small, intimate detail of how these iconic figures lived their lives made each one of them more human and more accessible! A must read/listen for anyone with an interest in the period!

I really enjoyed this book. I'm very interested in the tudor period and found this book gave a very unique insight into that time. If you enjoy history then I would highly recommend.
The narrator was very good. Even made some parts amusing.
