The White Queen - Margay's Review

Let me just start off by saying that I don't think I can give an appropriate review because I couldn't even make it through the book. I am disappointed, for myself, because I had never read a Philippa Gregory book before and I was excited to get the chance to do so. But it was kind of like reading a history book that was written in first person. Now I don't have anything against details and descriptions, but sometimes, the story is weighed down by them and never really gets started. For me, that is what happened with this book. It was so rich in detail, I felt that I was living this woman's life right along with her. Unfortunately, I never got beyond the first few chapters, so I never reached the point where the story actually began.

I am not going to rate this book or give an opinion one way or the other because, since I couldn't finish it, I don't believe that I am in a position to do so. Instead, I would rather leave that to Miss Gregory's fans and followers who can better sum up this book than I ever could. For me, I will wait for the movie version to come out.

I would still like to read this. I usually enjoy her books.

Well, you both entered for the drawing, so your chances are good!

Carrie said...

Margay, this is why it's good to have multiple reviews.

You pointed out one very good point - even though you felt laden down with historical facts, felt as though you were in the head of the character, which is always the sign of good writing, isn't it?

Interesting. I haven't read any of her books, but I've heard so many good things - and it's English history. So I'm still curious.
