    A free digital copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you, Endeavour Press I had initially thought that Mary, Queen of Scots was a non fiction read on the last years of the tragic monarch but it turned out to be a fictional story about the intertwining lives of Mary Stuart and her cousin, Elizabeth Tudor, the reigning queen of England That being said, Mary, Queen of Scots was not a great read and this was mainly due to two things bad writing and poor characterization.First, bad writing Mary, Queen of Scots read like a middle schooler s Reign fanfiction Its transitions between scenes was shoddy and jarring one minute we were watching the fun loving and cunning English court then the next, we were in dismal and barbaric Scotland The writing makes it seem to be marketed towards pre teens and in general, the middle school age demographic, but the fact that there was a lot of bawdiness and sex scenes tells me otherwise Besides that, the author would frequently dump information on the reader, telling what was happening instead of showing the events and exploring them at full length Basically, the bad writing of Mary, Queen of Scots made for an extremely dull and horrible read.Second, poor characterization, which was a result of the bad writing that I mentioned above Mary, Queen of Scots had a whole slew of interesting characters, including the titular figure and her cous...

    When I first started reading this book, I was disappointed that it was only 147 pages By the time I was 85 pages in, I was relieved that it was only 147 pages This bookisn t good That s being really nice If you know even the most basic outline of the history of Mary, Queen of Scots, you know this book There s nothing interesting, clever, or innovative in this And the writing is just plain bad I actually thought, after the first two chapters, that maybe this was a middle grade book and I just hadn t noticed That was until everyone started sleeping with each other It was then I realized that it was just poorly written I would say that this reads like a 14 year olds Reign the TV show fan fiction, but the original copyright is from 1972, so I don t know what to make of it And quite frankly, I ve already wasted a good 2 hours of my life on this book and don t care to spend ...

    This is a clean, concise story, not a lot of excess description anywhere Just the dialog, and the action, which I could picture quite clearly Very much like a verbatim account from a movie which I believe it is I initially thought it was too simple, but I grew to like it It s a quick read, and you ll get all the pertinent information, but you will not become emotionally vested with any of these characters I love this era of...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.While not an in depth, non fiction account of this tragic queen s life, this short book does give the reader a genuine feel for the futility of life in this turbulent time in England and Scotland s history Women, even one as pow...
