REVIEW ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Alison Weir Alison Weir ☆ 9 FREE READ READ Anne Boleyn A King's Obsession Sential reading for fans of Philippa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick'Weir is excellent on the little details that bring a world to life' GuardianThe young woman who changed the course of historyFresh from the palaces of Burgundy and France Anne draws attention at the English court embracing the play o. This is the second book in Alison Weir s new fiction series following the stories of the Six Wives of Henry VIII The first novel looked at Katherine of Aragon concentrating on her as a young woman and wife Of course in this book Katherine of Aragon appears too as we are now looking at the story of Anne Boleyn the woman who replaced Katherine not as a mistress but as a wifeLike the previous novel this is also very much a straightforward fictional biography There is a real sense that Alison Weir is a master of her craft and so knowledgeable of the time period that she easily makes you feel that you there at Court with the characters This could bring new readers to historical fiction in the way that The Other Boleyn Girl did when I first discovered the Tudors as a much younger reader Of all Henry s wives I personally find Anne Boleyn the most interesting This takes her from a young girl of eleven years old up to the end of her life To many Anne Boleyn is a feminist icon to others she is a scheming ambitious woman and many concentrate on her learning intelligence and her religious reforms I would say that Weir attempts to be fair in her writing whether she is speaking of Katherine or Anne She tells each novel from the point of view of the central character she is writing about and so gives us a fairly sympathetic portrayal of both This is a difficult balance but Weir is adept at balancing different characters and storylines We begin with Anne going to the court in the Netherlands as a young girl and later France before returning to England She is always in competition with her sister Mary and closest to her youngest brother George This book is full of excellent characters from George s wife Jane Rochford to Wolsey Cromwell and the Boleyn family adept at advancing their place at King Henry s court Then of course there is Henry capricious difficult to read changeable emotional and unstable The spider at the centre of a web that he knows he has ultimate control of Of course you may not agree with all of Weir s takes on events Whether it is her early love for Henry Percy her battles with Wolsey the demands of her father and uncle or her feelings for Henry and Elizabeth However this is a fascinating historical story and Weir tells it with flair If you have not read the story of Anne Boleyn before you are sure to learn a lot about a woman who gambled and ultimately lost I look forward to reading the later books in this series and always enjoy Weir s storytelling
