What the community says about The Six Wives of Henry VIII
- "The Six Wives of Henry VIII makes the history of six queens totally enthralling. This is an impeccably well-researched book, filled to the brim with quotes, facts, figures and stories collected often from first-person sources from the time. This isn't your average biography--these stories contain more intrigue than you bargained for!""If you're looking for the best books about the Age of Enlightenment, The Six Wives of Henry might be disappointing. It doesn't even take place in the time that was considered the 'Age of Enlightenment' and if that is what you were looking for, you will be disappointed. "
- "I never get tired of reading any of Ms. Weir's books. This one is just as great, with many details of his life that I didn't know about. Great read, great drama, lots of drama in fact when it comes to this dude. No wonder he is still fascinating hundreds of years later. What I find intriguing about that whole time period is that the more things change the more they stay the same. The same drive for power, money, influence, sex, religion and fame back then is alive and well today. I can only giggle at the thought of Henry on Twitter. "Anne is the best", "Anne betrayed me". "The Pope sucks", "I am the best there ever was", "I love a good wedding, don't you?""
