Book Review: "The Other Boleyn Girl"

The Other Boleyn Girl
(Philippa Gregory)

I'm not into historical fiction at all, but everyone kept saying how good this book is (and I wanted to read it before seeing the movie), so I figured I'd give it a shot. Overall, I really enjoyed it...the only thing that frustrated me was the length! I'm used to finishing books in a week or so, but this one was about 650 pages long (with fine print and lots of characters, so sometimes I found myself having to flip back through to remember who people were) so it took me almost three weeks! I found that I flew through the last half of it, particuarly the last 100 pages or so, it was one of those books that I was hoping we'd hit some traffic on the bus ride into work so that I could read a bit more.

Up next: Remember Me? (Sophie Kinsella)

I don't think I've read a book that does not contain "baby" ir "breast" in the title in about a year! hahaha Just kidding! But it's only been a few books... Good for you for getting through it.

I actually just watched the movie this weekend and thought they did a really good job adapting it to the screen. Definitely rent it at some point! - Sarah
