Review: The Virgin’s Lover by Philippa Gregory

2/10 scheming politicians
The Virgin's Lover This book was terrible. I had enjoyed Gregory’s other works such as the The Other Boleyn Girl and The Boleyn Inheritance so I thought I was in for another treat filled with frivolity and intrigue on a historical backdrop.

Again, I repeat.. it was terrible. The political games depicted were dry and uninteresting. After getting through half of Wolf Hall, Gregory was no match in writing about the political schemes of the Royal court.

Granted, this was Queen Elizabeth I rather than Henry VIII, but still. The characters were annoying. Don’t bother reading it!
