Much has been written about the mighty, egotistical Henry VIII: the man who dismantled the church because it would not grant him the divorce he wanted; who married six women and beheaded two of them; who executed his friend Thomas More; who sacked the monasteries; who longed for a son and neglected his daughters, Mary and Elizabeth; who finally grew fat, disease-ridden, dissolute. Now in her magnificent work of storytelling and imagination, Margaret George brings us Henry VIII’s story as he himself might have told it, in memoirs interspersed with irreverent comments from his jester and confident, Will Somers. Brilliantly combining history, wit, dramatic narrative, and an extraordinary grasp of the pleasures and perils of power, this monumental novel shows us Henry the man more vividly than he has ever been seen before.

    " Hefty & compelling, kind of like the man himself. "

    " Dense, really dense. But the information and history is enticing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Chelsie | 2/5/2014

    " I found this book very long, and full of presumptuous details regarding King Henry's life. All together it was a interesting biography of his wives...except the disappointing version of Anne Boleyn!!! In no historical reference does she have 11 fingers...or is she a witch. If that was dropped out of the book it would have maybe gotten another star. The poor womans reputation has been shot enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Bonnie Petros | 2/3/2014

    " I finally finished reading this epic novel and it was absolutely stellar! Uniquely written from the point of view of King Henry VIII of England, the reader gets a glimpse into the mind of this notorious monarch. A masterpiece! "
