I have listened to and read all of Phillipa Gregories Novels and have been totally addicted to them all. I love she takes her main characters to be those on the sidelines in history, mainly the wives and mistresses, so I should have realised that this would be about the Earl of Leicester rather than Elizabeth. I was intrigued as to what happened in detail to him after they touched on their brief but intense relationship i n the film Elizabeth and was hoping to get a llittle extra too. I was pleased to see Rupert Penry Jones was narrating as he was always a favourite of mine and would be s change to hear a male voice. However, I found the narration a tad school level and his impersonation of the Queen reminded me of Blackadder! The book was a lot shorter than some of the unabridged versions and maybe i didnt have enough time to grow into the characters. i must admit i fell asleep on a few occassion so had to rewinc to make sure i hadn't missed anything exciting but it seemed i hadn't missed much. I will attempf it again sometime (perhaps not at bedtimes) as i am sure i must ha e done it an injustice based ion th outstanding qualities of all the others
