Publisher's Summary

Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession by best-selling historian Alison Weir, author of Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen, is the second captivating novel in the Six Tudor Queens series. An unforgettable portrait of the ambitious woman whose fate we know all too well, but whose true motivations may surprise you. Essential listening for fans of Philippa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick.

The young woman who changed the course of history.

Fresh from the palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love.

But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game.

Anne has a spirit worthy of a crown - and the crown is what she seeks. At any price.

Anne Boleyn. The second of Henry's Queens. Her story.

History tells us why she died. This powerful novel shows her as she lived.

Six Tudor Queens. Six novels. Six years.

    "Wonderful fresh telling "

    Very interesting to to have Anne approached in a way that contrasts the many other novels of her life.
    Alison Weir has long been my favourite author of historical fiction, and I have enjoyed the first two books in the 6 wives series almost as much as innocent traitor, which I still believe to be her finest work.
    I enjoyed the performance of Anna Bentinck, but the version I listened to needs editing, there are several mistakes and even a double take of the same initially mispronounced sentence.

    "A good listen"

    I enjoyed listening to this book as I love Tudor history. However the narrators interpretation of King Henry the eighth really grated on me. It was harsh and did not adapt to the different scenarios even in scenes where Henry is verbalising his love for Ann this for me spoilt the book.
    Please Alison get another narrator. I love your books.
    Only stuck with it because I like the author.

    "Terrible Narrator"
    Would you try another book written by Alison Weir or narrated by Anna Bentinck?

    Yes i woud buy another book by Alison Weir but not narrated by Anna Bentick.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I wouldn't


    What aspect of Anna Bentinck’s performance might you have changed?

    I found her character voices very annoying, particularly Ann's. The way she narrated character conversations was farcial.


    Was Six Tudor Queens: Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession worth the listening time?

    Yes

    "Beautifully written and performed"

    Never before have I felt so involved with a character that I felt I already knew. There is no fear of not enjoying this book because you already know how it ends. I was truly transported to these treacherous times and felt with Anne through her life. I loved this book.
