Well, I've finally finished The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory. In my opinion it was one of my least favorite books by her. I found the book to be very redundant. The book is narrated by three main characters; Lord Shewsbery, Bess Shewsbery, and Mary Queen of Scots. Gregory neglects to go in to depth about these characters and instead it was 400+ pages of the same descriptions...Lord Shewsbery is a fool, Bess is only concerned with acquiring more land, and Queen Mary is very beautiful and desperate to return to Scotland.
Usually after a Philippa Gregory book, I find that I am compelled to research the historical figures and learn as much as possible about them....not the case with The Other Queen.
I have borrowed Twilight from some friends, and began that this morning. I have also been listening to Momzillas on cd. All so very different from one another!
