  "Innocent Traitor" by elahenaz (see profile) 01/28/08

Not bad, gives you yet another perspective of King Henry's life. Lady Jane is rarely talked about even though she was the "Nine Days Queen" prior to Mary I and after Edwards Death.

A little too long, The book should have been written shorter. Overall C+

 
  "Good historic fiction from a well known author, good research." by janannette (see profile) 04/16/09

At one time I considered Alison Weir to be the "be all" of historic fiction. However, I think I have become less enthusiastic since becoming a reader of Anne Easter Smith's novels. Lady Jane Grey is perhaps one of the saddest heroines in history and I think that Alison Weir has done and excellent job of making that obvious to all who read this novel. I would recommend this book to others who enjoy this genre of fiction.

Our Book Club enjoyed talking about Innocent Traitor. Although it wasn't a title that some of us would have picked up on our own, and since it's based on fact, I was concerned that we wouldn't find much to discuss. Not to worry! We talked about writing style (changing points of view), characterization, how likely it is that Jane would have reacted as she did (did author do a good job of speculating about how she might have been feeling?), the way people lived in those times, education, etc. There was plenty to discuss, and several of us are now wanting to learn or read about Queen Mary! Even though most of us knew how it was going to end, we kept reading. Now, that's the sign of a good author!

 
  "Interesting Account" by KarenC (see profile) 05/16/09

Some truth, some fiction makes for a good story. Ties in well with "The Tudors" on Showtime.
