trashy books Now this isn t something that I like to shout from the rooftops but if you spent your days reading Chaucer you would unwind with something less cerebral too I ve done the romance novel thing but the formula becomes grating after a while So my most turned to brainless literature is mediocre historical fictionI don t think Philippa Gregory stared out as a mediocre artist Her break out novel The Other Boleyn Girl was pretty gripping and presented a side of that worn out Tudor saga that I hadn t heard before Unfortunately her work has started to go down a long dull hill She s now turning her attention to the final years of the Plantagenet reign over English with The White ueen The White ueen follows the rise of Elizabeth Woodville a commoner widow who captures the eye of the young King Edward IV and rises to be the ueen of the penultimate reign of a Plantagenet monarch This period of time has been much discussed by artists and historians as an era of greed and blood Many a historian has portrayed Edward IV s ueen as the head of a family of grasping bloodsuckers who wormed their way into the highest positions in the kingdom much like the Boleyns a few generations later Shakespeare even dedicated his pen to a play based on the period Richard III There s an incredible amount to tell and so many points of view to take inUnfortunately Gregory decides to take the least believable route Inspired by the whispers of witchcraft that surrounded the Woodville family which was supposedly descended from a water goddess Gregory portrays Elizabeth Woodville her mother and daughter Elizabeth later ueen Elizabeth wife of Henry VII as practitioners of wizardry What made Edward fall for Elizabeth A ring tied to a string What made a boat carrying important dignitaries toss violently over the sea A storm called up by witches breath What withers Richard III s sword arm and cripples his health A curse and a locket Really Philippa really I think her choice in plot devices shows an author taking the easy way out Elizabeth Woodville whether you liked her or not was a force to be reckoned with She defied an ordained king by claiming sanctuary for herself and her children in a basement She suffered through accusations that her husband had been a bastard sired by a lowly English bowman She climbed to the highest position in the land and hung there through some of the greatest storms in English royal history And Gregory credits it to witchcraft UghSeriously if you find this era interesting pick up Sharon Kay Penman s The Sunne in Splendour a hefty novel that relies on history and the strength of the characters Gregory would indeed need witchcraft to reach her standard of work Sadly I m probably going to end up reading Gregory s next book which will be a depiction of the same events just from the point of view of Margaret Beaufort mother to Henry Tudor I will grit my teeth in irritation then maybe through my Kindle in the trash but I will read it shamefaced Why am I so weak Chancey of the Maury River known to read trashy books Now this isn t something that I like to shout from the rooftops but if you spent your days reading Chaucer you would

Alright I honestly did not like this novel I can t believe this woman has written than 10 books I ve been trying to conjure up excuses to give Gregory some credit but this novel just wasn t my style Mainly because all it really is is a detailed historical timeline with a little embellishment here and there its bland soup Her writing style in the beginning of the book was abominable The first 10 pages were all I I I and then He He He What I m trying to say is that there was no sentence variation making the story very annoying to read after about five minutes She improves on this towards the middle of the book but not immensely her writing style is still pretty feeling lessI also did not like the plot now this I cannot blame on Gregory as she can not be held responsible for the irritating nature of the Old Regime There are some take away lessons from this story about power and government but after a while the atrocities that men and women committed just to gain power became a little redundant and even annoying Its like okay how many times are going to fight for someone else s throne It just seemed like all these people had to do before the advent of television was go to war and try and become King of so and so I would HATE to have lived in that era or to be a ueen or a Princess and be caught up in the endless web of greed I hold all these views thanks to Gregory s perspectiveIt would be great to read something about this era written from the perspective of a common manGregory really had something going with the witch side plot line Magic always adds intrigue to a predictable story But this was a very minute part of the novel Most of the novel was just this happened and then that happened and then we were happy summary and then we went to war The war details were great This is why I m even giving the novel two stars There was a lot of detail there and you really could see the battles happening The personal relationships were colorless though so unless you need to learn about the House of York for history class I wouldn t waste my time with this book

Here is a thought that has probably never occurred to anyone while reading a Philippa Gregory novel You know what this book needs More politicsGregory is best known for her fictionalized tales about the lives of the Kings and ueens of England most famously The Other Boleyn Girl This is a genre I like to call Historical Harleuin whereby there may be some actual fact but it is mostly sappy glorified romance in what was probably just a time period miserable than the 90 s She turns fat homicidal maniacs into heartthrobs ie Henry VIII and sad female pawns into beautiful heroines ie every woman in her novels Has anyone seen 16th century portraits No one was beautiful They were all marrying their cousins Gregory usually does this with remarkable skill and her compelling provocative novels always end up on the bestseller list They are a tasty guilty pleasure kind of like Twilight s older brainier cousin Her newest novel The White ueen appeared to no one s surprise on the bestseller list almost immediately The surprise is in how terribly boring this one is Gregory has abandoned the Tudor dynasty and gone back in time to the Plantagenets a seemingly psychotic clan who should have been easy to write exciting literature about Two families the Lancasters and the Yorks struggled for the throne for generations The ruthless brother on brother violence and endless battling is now known as The War of the Roses since supporters wore colored roses to represent their favorite team so to speak Prior to reading this novel I just thought The War of the Roses was an 80 s movie starring Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas So at least I learned something and it wasn t a total waste of timeThe story follows Elizabeth Woodville She begins the book as a poor young widow and mother of two whose husband died in battle against the Yorks Then for inexplicable and icky reasons she falls in love with the victor King Edward who is essentially responsible for her husband s death No matter They marry in secret and after an interminable number of pages she eventually is declared ueen This makes her happy for reasons completely unclear to anyone sane especially considering that the chief pastime of royals in this time period was to cut off one another s heads As usual Gregory navigates a hefty chunk of time and history in this case 20 years in relatively little space The problem is that she misjudges the things that her audience might actually be interested in The Other Boleyn Girl her best and most famous novel did not bother the reader with the details of Henry s political life beyond how it affected his love life The White ueen reads at times like a Eurpoean History textbook It is crammed with names dates and battles Hello Girls read your books Philippa Give us some love scenes The steamier the better But when she s not writing like a stuffy historian she s writing sentiments that belong in N Sync songs He will never understand what happened that day between a young man and a young woman There was magic and the name of it was love YikesIt s next to impossible to keep track of who anyone is Everyone is named Richard Edward and Elizabeth Elizabeth names her own daughter Elizabeth and both her husband and son are named Edward She has two sons named Richard That s just lazy The king s brothers are Richard and George and Elizabeth has sons named you guessed it Richard and George And it s not just her family It seems that there were only ten names total to choose from in the 16th century and Gregory introduces us to about 700 characters all with the same ten names It s like watching The Hills where everyone is eually blonde and eually stupid and you have no idea what s happening or why There is one bright spot Women are always getting their heads chopped off in Gregory s books because they re accused of being witches an accusation that rings ridiculous in modern ears In this book Gregory decides to make the ueen actually guilty of witchcraft not just accused of it She and her mother have powers they cast spells call up storms tell the future etc This choice according to the Author s Note at the end stems from actual historical record that the ueen believed herself to be descended from a water goddess Weird yes Boring noThe rest is par for the course The men all come across as paranoid power hungry finger pointers and philanderers while the women are all strong smart beautiful and blameless There is a word for woman hating misogyny Whatever the word is for man hating I think Philippa Gregory is guilty of it Poor guys Apparently not a single nice one existed in all of England for the better part of 200 years The only good ones get killed off in battle or in unjust head removal procedures She may need to work out some of these issues in therapyThe White ueen is billed as the first in a series of books about the Plantagenets and the ending indeed has a Lord of the Rings lack of finality to it that is than a little frustrating It s hard not to hope that she gets her head chopped off in the next one so we can start freshFor some far better Historical Harleuin reads I recommend the followingThe Other Boleyn
