The Other Boleyn Girl Reviews

  • Mandy
    Disclaimer: Don't confuse this book with a biography of Mary Boleyn. It's fiction all the way. It's a good read when you remember that this is fiction and not a blow-by-blow account of historical events. And because it is fiction, Gregory is able to play a little fast and loose with historical fact....

    Some people (read: uptight history nerds with nothing better to do) like to get their undies in knots over Philippa Gregory's writing and whine about how she takes too many liberties with history. Well, guess what? She makes it interesting, and since her books are classified as fiction, I think she ...

    The thing you must realize about this book is that it is, first and foremost, a novel. A novel based on actual historical events, yes, but still a work of fiction.

After reading so many good things on here and elsewhere about this book I was looking forward to it. At about 100 pages into it I thought I really was enjoying it. Too bad the book didn't end at page 20...

    This was one of the first books I read by Philippa Gregory -- and out of order. How could I do that to myself... but in the end, you can read them out of order assuming you know the entire list of monarchs in order. :) Informative book. If you're a history buff, it will line up well -- and give you ...

    No.No.No.Heck to the nah. Heck to the naw naw. I read The Other Boleyn Girl - and I wish I hadn't. This book makes Reign look like a masterpiece. It might as well have been called 'The Other Kardashian Girl.' The one thing that is abundantly clear is that this book is very anti-Anne Boleyn. The auth...
