I’m back from my mini-hiatus, and I’m sorry for the delay.
I just had this strange desire for there to be PG gifs, but alas, there are not, so I cannot use them.
Have any questions about PG, her works, historical fiction, the Tudors (the family, or I guess the show if you really want), or other random historical things? Or just want to share your opinion on any of these topics? Tell me here.
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much recently, but I’m away. I return in early/mid July, so then I’ll have more time.
Thank you! :)
I couldn’t agree more, thank you so much. It’s fiction that just includes historically-related things, even if that means the time period.
As unhelpful as this is, I don’t have any favorites. I’ve read quite a few, but found myself enjoying actual Tudor history books more. Though I do love historical fiction, the Tudor Era being one of my favorite types, there haven’t been any that really stand out to me. But if I find one, I’ll let you know. What are your favorites?
That of course works for her fiction books, but she shouldn’t add false information into her “history” books. Even with her disclaimer. Historical fiction is great, and I’m sure people love her work, but if all of her work is just that, she shouldn’t call some of it history.
Thank you for your opinion! I actually don’t have a problem with her novels, and I love reading historical fiction. I do have a problem with how she backs up things that aren’t facts with “sources” and how so many people take her books to be what really happened in history.
Well, I thought her interpretation was fine. I read The Boleyn Inheritance a while ago, but from what I remember, her interpretation wasn’t all too bad. I don’t think there was much unloveable about her except for the fact that she was less attractive than expected. She was supposedly quite kind to everyone, including Katherine Howard when she was Queen after Anne, and also to the King’s children. It seems she just wanted to be friendly instead of assert herself as Queen, which might be one reason you find her so endearing. Hopefully I’m remembering the book correctly. :)
I just found that out, thank you for telling me! Perhaps she includes things that aren’t true in her non-fiction as well, which is the problem.
So your name’s not Hannah Green?
See! You might love them now, but I doubt you’d be their best friend if you actually met them.
Thank you! As tempting as that sounds, no one deserves to get yelled at for any of this, no matter how rude and hateful they were being.
All of us can just go on our happy ways. (Though I shall keep this offer in mind). Hahaha, thanks.
I’m not going to say, sorry. Just because they’re being hateful doesn’t mean I want them getting hate, too.
Actually, it hasn’t been proven either way. KoA’s virginity when she married Henry is a very large debate, and most likely always will be.
