It’s book review Sunday, of course, and this week I read The Other Boleyn Girl so that I could compare it to the movie.
What I don’t understand is why this book had to be so long since it was 100% fabricated anyway. At over 600 pages, there’s bound to be loads of repetition of works and images and about half way through the book I found myself skimming it just for the plot details.
That said, it was an easy read and a good story at that. I think that Gregory paints an interesting picture of what life at that time would have been like and those parts keep the book very interesting. This was a fun book and maybe when I have more time I’ll pick up a sequel to this novel.
