    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleMargaret George writes about ueen Elizabeth I of England and the last years of her reignI think most people are aware that Elizabeth's father was Henry VIII and the tumultuous going's on that preceded and then ushered in her reign But fewer are aware of what happened during the later years of her lifeThe last years were still exciting and dangerous filled with invading Spanish armadas than one and power hungry lords That's what this book is all aboutI confess I am a major fan of both Elizabeth I and Margaret George I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble women but I have the heart and stomach of a king and of a king of England too and think it foul scorn that Parma or any prince of Europe should dare to invade the borders of my realm pg 41A few years ago I had the privilege of visiting Westminster Abbey and seeing the tomb of Elizabeth

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleLet me preface this review by saying I'm a huge fan of Margaret George It was reading her book about Mary ueen of Scots that first kindled my interest in history Ms George is a towering literary talent and I re read The Autobiography of Henry VIII every year So why then did I fell an overwhelming sense of release when I finished 'Elizabeth I'? This book was a slog to read with little or no of the Ms George magic It struck me she has lost her way as a writer and become totally absorbed by the research and historical accuracy that she has forgotten the craft of writing an enthralling story Her earlier books are outstanding in their novel approach to a great historical characters but Elizabeth is little than a literary documentary on the life of an elderly ueen I'm guessing the 'hook' if you can call it that is that we hav

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleHistorical fiction novelist Margaret George has never shied away from retelling a well known story Her subjects have included Henry the VIII Cleopatra Mary ueen of Scots Helen of Troy and now Elizabeth I It takes a lot of nerve and a passionate love of the subject to tackle the life of a figure we could all know enough about to write a 200 word bio Add to that the explosion of novels about the Tudors in the last few years and George's audaciousness is multiplied by a thousandThere are two big nice surprises in Elizabeth I The first is that the book does not start with Henry's marriage to Anne Boleyn Elizabeth's birth or even her ascension to the throne The novel begins when Elizabeth is 55 and the Spanish Armada is about to attack She has already been ueen for almost thirty years and would remain ueen for only another fourteen years According to most historians by this time the great successes of her reig

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleMargaret George is one of the best historical novelists Here we find Elizabeth at the point of the invasion of the Spanish Armada and told largely from her own POV about the later years of her reign uite different from the usual focus on her earlier years and largely less dramatic but very absorbing She is one of my favourite characters in English history; this is the eual of The Autobiography of Henry VIII With Notes by His Fool Will Somers which is an all time favorite of mine

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleI've never really worshiped at the altar of Margaret GeorgeThe Memoirs of Cleopatra is fantastic; that I will never deny It's probably the best fictional Cleopatra book out there Helen of Troy is frothy and fun and kind of a really long summ

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleMargaret George has cemented her reputation as a grand dame of historical fiction creating epic novels about history's most legendary characters from Henry VIII to Mary of Scotland to Helen of Troy In her latest novel ELIZABETH I she tackles perhaps the most legendary and elusive figure of all the Virgin ueen herselfElizabeth Tudor is famous as much for what she said and did as for what she did not She remains so fascinating precisely because we know so little about her personally even as her reign is replete with some of English history’s most well publicized events She was a study in contrasts and Ms George uses these contradictions to full advantage in her meticulously researched portrayal of an aging Elizabeth and her world Beginning with the first Armada there were several as the novel points out and spanning the last fifteen years of Elizabeth's eventful life th

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleAs much as I enjoyed the descriptive writing boy can Margaret George make me experience the reality of living as an Elizabethan and the deft handling of a middle aged woman's viewpoint I struggled to finish this novel I even struggled as I read it to identify what exactly my issues were with it Was I just not in the mood for a novel that stretched than 600 pages? Have I gotten so used to reading my guilty pleasure reads that I can no longer tolerate the slower pace and richer language of less formulaic fiction? In all honesty I made it halfway through Elizabeth I before whatever magic glue pulls a reader through a book ran out Given that I know how it ends I had little motivation to keep reading Perhaps for the less knowledgeable reader not knowing how Elizabeth's relationship with the Earl of Essex develops is enough to maintain suspense But from a purely dramatic standpoint it is a tepid suspense even so In the end I'm perplexed about what George could have

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleEnjoyed this book tremendously Am not one who likes ueen Elizabeth I messed with so when I received this book as an anniversary present from my husband I was a bit skeptical No need so thoroughly steeped in history as to be acceptable to even the most proficient in the Tudor era George does let you know at the end what is historiography and what is fiction which as a former history teacher I appreciate—can be so h

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleOverall this book was a huge disappointment It was tedious boring and way way way too long It took me over 4 weeks to read which meant that I really did not want to be reading it If one ever suffers from insomnia 30 pages with this book and you will be out like a light probably why it took me so long to read it I could never stay awake I should also add that the four weeks of reading time included an 11 hour plane ride so if I couldn't even stick with it while confined in an airplane I really didn't like it very muchThis book told the story of Elizabeth I in the latter part of her life beginning with the Armada It was told in the first person Interspersed throughout was the parallel story of her cousin and enemy Lettice also told

    PDF/EPUB Margaret George ï Elizabeth I PDF/EPUB Ã ï elizabeth kindle, Elizabeth I KindleI count myself as one of the people lucky enough to receive an advance copy of Margaret George’s new novel Elizabeth I I can honestly say that having read every one of Ms George’s novels I had every expectation to thoroughly enjoy it and I was not disappointed The author researches her subjects for months even years and writes a very factual novel but in a fascinating way She writes in a story format so as to entertain while imparting a wonderful piece of historical data that doesn’t leave the reader feeling like they have just read a high school text book I have always been a huge fan of Margaret George and continue to be so after reading this book I hope she goes on to continue writing about the royalty of centuries ago because she is truly gift
