I just finished reading the book. It took me only 1 day and a half, I think it's interesting and well written although some chapters seem to be too repetitive. The only problem I have is that I do not understand how and why the writer seems to believe that Jane was the most successful of all Henry?s wives. The only thing she managed to do was deliver a son! As if that is something that depends only on the woman. Henry was much more responsible for not having male kids, and as it seems his relationship with Jane caused Anne?s last miscarriage. I do not understand why anyone should admire Jane and despise Anne while they used the same ?tricks? to steal a married man from his wife. I was quite happy to see Jane suffering when she watched her husband awake in the middle of the night thinking and crying for Anne. She just couldn?t stop comparing herself to his previous wife. And I couldn?t stop laughing when I read that little Elizabeth told her step-mother that only God decides who is going to rule the country and who is not. Jane was willing to support her husband cheating on her, and she thought that that was smarter from what the previous wives did! Ok maybe that would serve her in order to not lose her head or get divorced but that?s not the kind of happy and successful marriage. I just can?t understand why a clumsy, plain, obedient wife should be admired, at least not today when women are independent, really smart (Jane was not from my point of view) and don?t fear their husbands as Jane did, but make them respect them.
