The Wives of Henry VIII

Author: Antonia Fraser
Genre: Ummm...biography.
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Type: Non-fiction
Number of pages: 479 (smallish print. Yeah, big book)
Time period: 1500's
Main characters: King Henry VIII, Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, Catherine Parr
My overall opinion: I found it to be a very interesting book. If you have either a little or else no interest in King Henry VIII and his wives, you will find this book very boring. I will admit, even I skimmed parts of it and it's one of the parts of history I find most riveting! But overall, I enjoyed it and learned SO much about them. I can now keep them apart. :) I recommend you try it. But be warned...it's a huge book.
