What the community says about The White Queen (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels)
- "I never understood the attraction to paganism, so I thought I would try to read a little about it. The White Queen by Phillippa Gregory seemed like a good place to start. However, after the first couple chapters, I never took it back off the shelf. It is just unrelatable and uninteresting to me. I'm not a fan of the books content or writing style. "
- "I love books that are based on historical events but are still fictional. Reading about Elizabeth was great and made me even more interesting in reading the other books. I had no idea she did so much. Now I just have to figure out which things were fictional and which were real."
- "As a history buff I had trouble reading through this book. I was really bored by it as I read it in my dorm room. It felt more like a romance novel than historical book, which disappointed me. IT felt like the play "Romeo and Juliet" because a commoner was dating royalty even though others would disapprove. This made the book feel cliche and made me feel like I had seen it before. I was able to finish it, but it was not a priority. I would read a couple of chapter each week in my dorm when I was bored and that is about it. This book made me think more about romance that the Tudors of England, which is not good."
