Great book. Full of action. Believable

Very disappointing. I enjoyed The Autobiography of Henry VIII so looked forward to Elizabeth I. I gave up after 150 pages. I expected it to improve getting into more detail about her reign but instead felt like I was reading a soap opera.

Elizabeth I has provided much of what we know about the Tudor Golden Years. This author has encouraged, embelished and in fact maintained the integrity of the events, stories and exchanges that none of us wil have been privy to. But on the other hand she has shared a vision of a time and place for us.

I have read and listened to this title and if you are a Tudor entrhusiast you wil enjoy the experience.

The counterpoint between Elizabeth I and Lettice Knollys to tell the story (of Elizabeth) makes it murky and somewhat disjointed. Much less sprightly than the device Ms. George successfully used between Henry VIII and Will Soames in her earlier work on the Tudors.

This is a lengthy read, but well worth the time...well documented and an interesting perspective on the latter years of the reign of Elizabeth I.

Wonderfully written - Elizabeth's mature years. Wondered if I really needed to read another novel about Lizzie I ...glad I picked it up (with both hands - it's weighty!).

Historical fiction about the last decades of the Virgin Queen's rule.
