Traitors of the Tower | [Alison Weir]

Traitors of the Tower

More than four hundred years ago, seven people - five of them women - were beheaded in the Tower of London. Three had been queens of England. The others were found guilty of treason. Why were such important people put to death? Alison Weir's gripping book tells their stories: from the former friend betrayed by a man set on being king, to the young girl killed after just nine days on the throne. Alison Weir is a wonderful storyteller. Through her vivid writing, history comes alive.

    "Bit like a 'school project'"

    Remember once a year in school you got to choose a 'project' and you wrote as much as you could on the subject without really giving each subject too much depth? Well that's how I found this book, although the price and running time had alerted me to the fact it was never going to be any more then a quick skim over each subject, it just lacked any real detail and unfortunately the narrator did not help reading in that 'standing in front of the class' way. Disappointed, but glad it was cheap!

    "Five star book - three star narration"

    Alison demonstrates her superb ability to make history interesting and includes anecdotes which other historians leave out, however it is a shame that the narration spoils the overall effect. It is a personal viewpoint but I do not like my historical audio books to be read in a sing-sonsy voice as though I were a four year old. Other Alison Weir audio books are narrated by a male who pitches it just right and so I was disappointed with this reading but will remain a loyal Alison Weir fan.
