'The White Queen' Review

Since a lot of you (myself included) are excited about the release of BBC/Starz's "The White Queen," I thought I'd share this great review of Philippa Gregory's novel on which the show is based.

This review by the Huffington Post goes into a lot of great detail about the novel, discussing it's imagery, giving text examples, and coming to the conclusion that "The White Queen is a good literary work that offers some very accurate insights and food for thought on historical matters of this very troubled age of warring cousins."

Check out the full review here.

I'm very excited to read the novel, as well as watch the show! Have you read this novel? If so, what did you think?

  1. Loved the novel, although I do agree with the reviewer on some repetitive phrases. Couldn't put the book down. Excellent review, thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for the review ... I will give the book a second try. The first time, I felt that there were so many references to Elizabeth Woodville's descent from Melusina and her family's magic (use of love potions, etc.) that I expected the book to end by her arranging for the Princes in the Tower to be apparated to Hogwarts.
