LOL Clare, I think where you need to go is either tweak into into Archery or perhaps Henry and his wives liked a bit of BDSM. I have just come back from the shops and in the book section next to the unbelievable amount of 50 Shades books, were all these lame ripoffs with similar covers like 80 Days Yellow about a celloist and a professor who will fix her violin and some spoof version called 50 Shades of Mr Darcy. I can see it now, The Six Shades Of Henry

Yes, I can see it now! The cover would be grey and instead of a tie it would have a codpiece!

If it’s about Henry VIII, bearing in mind the reformation, shouldn’t it be 50 Shades of Pray?

Those codpieces make me shudder Laugh I think we could collaborate, this is easily a six-month wonder. Then we get the publishers to tell blatant lies that we’ve outsold Harry Potter and Dan Brown. Then a HBO series…
I liked some of Neil’s Fifty Shades versions too Louise, Fifty Shades of Slay was brilliant.

Tim and I have been very immature but I blame the plumbing adhesive we’re being exposed to – see http://www.theanneboleynfiles……-of-henry/

At least you’ve got an excuse. I’m silly and inappropriate at the best of times: with or without adhesive!

They’re all quite ‘out there’ aren’t they? One has the Princess Mary in love with George Boleyn….hark, what’s that sound? Oh yes, it’s Mary spinning in her grave!

Has anyone read any books by Elizabeth Jenkins? Craig’s gotten me a book on Elizabeth by her but I haven’t gotten around to reading it. I just saw one on the Princes in the Tower by her and was wondering if it might be any good

Olga,
I have Elizabeth Jenkins’ book, Elizabeth The Great. It’s rather dated. First printed in 1958, but I still use it for reference. Other than that I’ve not read any of her other works.

Ok thanks Sharon I might get the other one on the Princes. There’s not a lot of modern books about them though, I don’t think Weir’s will be much good

Weir’s was dreadful, even by her usual standards.

According to Weir, Shakespeare was spot on. He’s the complete, moustachio twirling vaudeville villain. Her book is full of perjoritive language in a thinly disguised attempt to convince the reader of what a swine he was. She completely ignores any positive evidence about RIII and swallows anything negative, from any shady source, as total truth. I’m quite happy to read both pro and anti Richard theories, but hers is the only book I’ve ever thrown away.

Right, thanks for clearing that up Gill Laugh Although after reading her last book I suspected as much. I’m leaning towards pro-Richard theories anyway

Not yet Louise, I’ll tell you when I do Laugh Her last book Dangerous Inheritance had Richard III’s illegitimate daughter in it, though it was fairly mild on the Richard slander.

That was one of the (many) things that annoyed me in her book on the princes. Richard was highly critical of his brother Edward’s promiscuous ways and Weir brands him a hypocrite because he himself had two illegitimate children. But she leaves out the information that they were born well before his marriage to Anne Neville, and there is no real evidence he was ever unfaithful to Anne. Anyone unfamiliar with the details would just accept her assertion that he was a total hypocrite.
