    One thought on “Anne Boleyn: Henry VIII's Obsession”

    1. A pretty good non-fiction read on Anne Boleyn. My one gripe (and this is for all the non-fiction that does this) is when the author writes things like, "Anne must have felt" and "This was a night Anne would always remember." Really? Were you there? How do you know?Other than that, it was a decent read.

    2. Commissioned by me at Amberley Publishing, the most accessible biography of Anne available. Author is near to completing biographies of all Henry's six wives and is also working on a major illustrated history the the lives of the Queens of England.

    3. What can I say? I love Anne Boleyn. And nursing the remnants of a cold plus stressed over classes, this was the ticket. The information wasn't new to me. I've read it all before and had it presented to me in numerous ways, but I thought that Elizabeth Norton was even handed with her delivery. She didn't try to wash away the things Anne did that weren't what we would call right -- such as, threatening to kill Mary, because, by now, that really is a fact of life -- nor did she completely slander h [...]

    4. This book needed better editing. To use the same cliched phrases in adjacent paragraphs is sloppy and to have no one fix it is lazy. Things I didn't remember reading elsewhere: the rumour that Anne was secretly Henry's child from his affair with her mother (what?), Anne's "subservient" letter to Lady Wingfield before she was queen, and the specifics of the accusations by Lady Worcester.I liked having the original source material in its original spelling but the references were a nightmare to par [...]

    5. From Doomed queen of Henry VIII, mother to Elizabeth I, the epic story of Anne Boleyn from an exceptional new writer. Anne Boleyn was the most controversial and scandalous woman ever to sit on the throne of England. From her early days at the imposing Hever Castle in Kent, to the glittering courts of Paris and London, Anne caused a stir wherever she went. Alluring but not beautiful, Anne's wit and poise won her numerous admirers at the English court, and caught the roving eye of King Henry.Anne [...]

    6. A fairly easy read - I finished it in less than a day and I have an 11 month old baby (hello, naptime!)Overall it's not a bad text, but the author repeated several phrases and words, often in close proximity. I found this to very rather annoying, as though a thesaurus wasn't available?I've stated in other reviews that one of my greatest pet peeves is when authors claim to know what their subject is thinking or feeling about a given situation. Just stop, please, thanks.I still side with those who [...]

    7. As far as accounts of Anne Boleyn go, this is very informative and well researched. The style, however, reads more like scientific research than historical analysis. There is so much repetition of words and phrases, sometimes in adjacent paragraphs, that I found it to be distracting from the actual facts/story. I enjoyed reading tidbits of actual letters written at the time, however a modern translation of the old/Middle English spellings would have been helpful in a lot of places. I found there [...]

    8. I was going to give this 2 stars originally, but it improved noticeably from about half way through.To begin with, I only persevered with this book as I am so interested in the subject matter and because it is short. It has in it's favour that it is quite easy to read. On the downside, it was full of the writer's assumptions about how Anne felt, basically stating them as fact. The descriptions were generally unoriginal (although that didn't bother me that much), and they were extremely repetitiv [...]

    9. ISBN? - 9781848685147General Subject/s? - History / Tudors / Anne BoleynTitle? - Henry VIII was obsessed by Anne Boleyn for seven years before he married her - never again did he spend so much time wooing a woman.General Analysis? - I like Elizabeth Norton's writing style, but some of her information was incorrect. For example, that Mark Smeaton was hung, drawn and quartered, when in fact he was beheaded like the rest. Aside from these tiny errors, I really really enjoyed Norton's book. It was e [...]

    10. This was a well written bio on Anne Boleyn, it's the first one I read and while I didn't learn anything new, it was written well and concise. Anne Boleyn, one of my favourite English Queens is explored, looking at her childhood right through to her adulthood, her relationships with her family and her true and very expressive emotions.Like many bios on less documented royals, it assumes quite a bit, some which are blatantly obvious and some, rather educated and potentially controversial, guesses. [...]

    11. For all the sound scholarship to be found in this book, the author doesn't seem at all confident with expressing herself. Stock phrases are used again and again and the direct repetition, especially in chapter conclusions, is absolutely infuriating. How it made it past the editing room in this sorry state I will never know. I can think of no greater irony than an account of such a lively and charismatic woman (and wordsmith) as Anne Boleyn, being told by a writer completely devoid of these facul [...]

    12. An easy to read biography of Anne Boleyn which takes into account a lot of contemporary sources on this fascinating woman and 2nd queen to Henry the VIII. The reason why it only receives 4 stars is this: Although the author mentions that the sources on Anne Boleyn may be partial and/or tainted by personal and/or political reasons, she nevertheless cites them as if they were almost neutral statements. IOt would have been nice to know more about the backgrounds of the sources, so: its only 4 stars [...]

    13. tragis sekali nasib anne boleynrawal dari hasrat & intrik ingin menjadi bagian dari kerajaan inggris membawa drama kelam & kepedihan dalam takdirnyaapa bilang hidup dalam kerajaan itu aman & tentram?lewat buku ini,pandangan kamu para readers akan berbalik total melihat kemewahan hidup para raja & ratu,karena dibalik setiap keindahan ada keburukan yang sempurna untuk ditutupiling sikut adalah kata yg tepat untuk dinasti ke dinasti para kerajaan & isinya.

    14. I loved this bio of Anne, it was incredibly heart felt and I did feel myself really empathizing with Anne's plight. I have to be honest and admit that I shed a tear towards the end with the description of the execution and Cromwell's reaction to it.

    15. Rather disappointing,this account of Anne Boleyn's life contributes nothing new to what has already been written about her by other historians.

    16. Fabulous book! Loved it and couldn't put it down til it was finished. This was up there with some of the best books on Anne Boleyn and i have now read quite a few.

    17. Interesting and insightful. This book provided a lot of "food for thought" relating to Anne's complex relationship with Henry.
