Since we signed up for Netflix we have been catching up on some of the shows that most people are familiar with. Lately we have been watching "The Tudors" series. I have always been fascinated by this period of history and have read many books about it. Watching the series has rekindled my interest so I headed to the library to find some books I hadn't read. And, I found one, a big one, don't know how I didn't see this before...maybe because it looks more like a fixture on the shelf rather than a book.
"The Autobiography of Henry VIII with Notes by His Fool, Will Sommers -A Novel"
The book is almost 1000 pages long and covers the entire reign of Henry VIII. I enjoyed it, but because of the length of the book it became almost burdensome and I found myself eager to be done with it. I would recommend the book as it is one of the only books that covers his whole reign, rather than just the Anne Boleyn era. However, I did have to renew it a couple of times in order to finish reading it, and I am a fast reader. If you are a slow reader you may have to pay a fine to the library in order to finish the book!
'til next time...
