Scary Lady

Amazing! Philippa Gregory can really describe these clever, charismatic, and slightly psychotic women - not in a way that makes you like them but so it mesmerizes the reader. In my opinion, this is the best since Wideacre (I loved that sociopathic Beatrice compared to whom Scarlett O'Hara is an angel) and The Other Boleyn Girl. It is tremendously well written and (to use a worn-out phrase) totally unputdownable. Also, the historical research is impeccable. The redemption chapter of The Wise Woman is nightmare stuff and somehow totally right. I wish I could give more than five stars!

Readable/Not Her Best

by Pamela H on Jan 20, 2011

Have enjoyed the Philippa Gregory books I've read so far, but this one falls short. While an easy read and somewhat entertaining, it doesn't meet the standard of her other books historically or plot. If you're looking for something to take on vacation or just want a "quick read"....I would recommend this book.
