I'm a little let down by the BBC series. Can't explain why except that it all looks a bit too glossy for it to be Tudor England. Anyway, are the books any better? I'm looking for a good series of novels to get my teeth into over the Summer. I enjoyed reading David Starkey books. They're not novels, I know, but they were written in a very accessible style. Nothing too dry. I'm just wondering if I might enjoy the Philippa Gregory novels... Thanks if you can make any sense of my end of term ramblings. I'm just looking forward to having lots of free time and a clear head to indulge in some reading!
