Rereading for the first time in years.
The story was interesting, after reading so many books where Mary Tudor was only a secondary character, mentioned in passing if mentioned at all. But the writing style was way too flowery for me. It seemed as if the characters were either "good" or "bad" in the author's mind. There didn't seem to be enough duality in the way they were presented. The author seemed determined to give as many happy endings as possible, although anyone who has read anything about Henry VIII knows that for most of his court, the ending is anything but happy. All in all, I would try another book by this author to see if I liked her writing better a second time around.
Absolutely loved this book. Best book I've read in a long time. I didn't have trouble with the dialect at all, I'm not sure why. I am from Louisiana & both of my parents are from right outside of Jackson. It is very accurate to me, nothing like the TV shows that try to portray lawyers in Louisiana with fake southern accents! I couldn't put this book down & highly recommend it! One of my favorite books. Hope that Kathryn Stockett keeps on writing
