This book contains a lot of fact about the life of Anne Boleyn. Although the other is sold to Anne Boleyn, it is a very good book for anyone who wants to learn more about Anne Boleyn. I will definitely read another book from this other.

1.0 out of 5 stars i would not recommend this book May 15 2012
By Sonia Rakel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't usually review books, but I felt compelled to give a quick review on this book. While it did provide some interesting facts on the Tudors, I do have to agree with the other reviewers that have commented on the lack of original research here. I was further disappointed by the amount of opinions given by the author and how poorly written the book was. However, because I was interested in learning more about the Tudors, I kept reading the book until I read the line: "I'm not a medical expert, but when I Googled McLeod Syndrome. . ." This was written to disprove an article (apparently written by a bioarchaeologist) claiming that King Henry VIII may have suffered from McLeod Syndrome. I could never take an author seriously when they are trying to disprove a scientist's theory through a google search.

2.0 out of 5 stars Have to agree with the less positive reviewers here. July 4 2012
By Tara B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely love reading about the Tudors. The real ones, not the Showtime version. Unfortunately, this fell rather flat for me. Pancake-style. There is very, very little here that we haven't all heard before. She delves into the stereotypes, the "Fact vs Fiction", "What really happpened"...and all it is is her OPINION on what happened. How can you write a book called "The Real Truth" while it's all basically opinions and conjecture? While she argues some theories fairly well, I have to agree that this book is a long, loooooong way from being able to legitimately classify itself as truth. Just Google Anne Boleyn and don't waste your money.

Love the topic and the historical / research context. Fascinating. Be prepared to read a series of blog posts though, rather than a well written complete book.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a series of blog posts- not the non-fiction book I expected. July 30 2012
By Alidrue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a sucker for British culture - especially the Tudor era - I gleefully downloaded this book. Based on the description and title, I expected some degree of historical merit from a fellow anglophile. I expected a properly cited work of non-fiction. This is a series of blog posts - predominately a critical account of Philippa Gregory's "The Other Boleyn Girl." I understand how confusion between fact and fiction by the general public can be frustrating. The "venting" by the author is appropriate for a blog, not for the non-fiction work I anticipated. I applauded research by the author, however, the sources are not properly cited. The book is not written in such a manner as to demonstrate independent thought supported by the research - or the use of research to adequately substantiate another's theory. I fully understand the limited research available on the topic. I further understand that developing new theories on historical topics is difficult at best. However, independent thought and new theories are completely different. I hate to see the author's time, passion, and research wasted on poor execution (or translation to book format). I believe non-fiction should be written in third person. I enjoy Ridgway's website. She has a wonderful blog and a true passion for the subject. However, with her credentials, I did expect a more substantial (scholarly?) read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Sept. 11 2012
By Monica N - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed by this book. It was not well written and seems to contain opinions of the author much more than actual facts. I would not recommend this book. I am an avid reader and have read a lot on this topic and could not find it in me to complete reading this book.
