A powerful ruler, an alluring young woman, a scandal that would rock the nation: Anne Boleyn's life story sounds more like a juicy TV docu-drama than a chapter of English history. Although she is not of noble birth or even especially beautiful, Anne Boleyn manages to rise to the very pinnacle of the English aristocracy.

Renowned for her extraordinarily vivid recreations of historical events, Carolly Erickson brings out the full fascinating story of the enigmatic Anne Boleyn. Erickson paints an engaging portrait of this intriguing woman and her tragic life, from her early education in court intrigue, through her courtship and controversial marriage to Henry VIII, to the day she mounts the scaffold.

With her expertise in the Tudor period, her sensitivity to sexual and political nuance, and her eminently readable prose style, Carolly Erickson is the ideal biographer for the elusive Anne Boleyn. Narrator Simon Prebble's elegant performance evokes all of the bittersweet drama of Boleyn's exceptional life and the tumultuous times in which she lived.

    " Not as great as I had hoped. Some good information, but the Six Wives of Henry VIII is much better. "

    " I'm a big fan of Tudor England and all its players, Anne Boleyn in particular. I also happen to be a fan of Carolly Erickson, but this one didn't quite live up to my expectations. I found it to be on the dull side which is unforgiveable given the subject matter. Still, well researched overall. "

    " This book was just like a text book, except more details and how they managed to spend 200-ish pages breaking down such a interesting event into insane boringness is beyond my knowledge! i didn't even finish it, i was on 161 when i couldnt read it anymore! "

    " I continue to be fascinated with the wives of Henry VIII, and although this well-researched biography Anne Boleyn offered little new information, it's an enjoyable read. Anne continues to be a tragical historic figure, no matter how many times her story is re-written. "
