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.

Great story but bad editing.

Would you listen to Six Tudor Queens: Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession again? Why?

I had to give up listening the first time and have gone back to reading the book. With no disrespect to the narrator, her voice was too old for the young Anne and who ever mixed this left small mouth noises in, either that or she kept rustling papers. However by cleaning up the recording these little noises that irritate when listen to on head phones could be eliminated and I could then get over the age of the reader.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Six Tudor Queens: Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession?

Did not listen long enough each time to get into it. However when reading the book Alison Weir does an all round fantastic job building the scene and welcoming you into a Tudor world.

Any additional comments?

If you are not picky about extra noises and can relax into it by all means listen. However if not then I still urge people to read the book as Alison has done it again with an excellent piece.
