Given that this book was more about Hannah Green (the Fool) then about the monarchy direct...I didn't think that I would enjoy this as much as I did. With this finished, all I have left is the latest book that Philippa Gregory released this past September....so sad! ( )

Interesting beginning, long boring middle with too much repetition, nice ending. Hannah gave a perspective of the times - do whatever to survive, the Queen Mary as a person so into her religion that she was a killing queen yet Hannah understands her as caring, the idea that to be safe you hide your true religious beliefs. Hannah acts as a fool in boys clothes, sees future several times, then becomes aware of her sexuality. Idea of a female trying to be independent when males decide everything. Lord Dudley cared about no one but himself but then why always helped Hannah. Why did David keep loving Hannah. ( )

I read The Virgin's Lover last month, but I really should have read The Queen's Fool first! The Virgin's Lover picks up right where this book ends. There are even some overlapping scenes.

The Queen's Fool is only the third Philippa Gregory book that I've read (aside from The Virgin's Lover I've also read The Other Boleyn Girl). Gregory isn't a particularly good writer (she reuses the same words and phrases over and over again. I get it; Robert Dudley is ambitious) but she certainly does her research. I saw another Goodreads reviewer say that Philippa Gregory basically writes historical fanfiction and while that's not entirely fair there's a lot of truth in that statement. Her books are page-turners but they feel like a guilty pleasure read to me. That being said, I'll definitely read more of her books in the future. ( )

I liked this book so much, that I found it hard to put down/part with it when it was time to do something else but reading.

Usually I'm not very fond of any kind of romance books, but somehow Gregory has found a way to write about the English court that I'm interested in and fond of.

A book about royalty, court life, betrayal, love, war, refuge seeking, religion. I think that if I find another novel by her in this series, I won't leave it alone :-) ( )

Loved this book! Not only did it tell the historical story of the reign of Queen Mary Tudor, but we see it through the eyes of a charming courtier. Hannah is a lost young woman at the beginning, and it's a joy to join her on the journey life brings her. ( )

The girl, giggling and overexcited, was running in the sunlit garden, running away from her stepfather, but not so fast that he could not catch her.

I relearned the skill of reading backwards, I relearned the skill of the sweep of the ink ball, the flick of the clean sheet and the smooth heave on the handle of the press so that the typeface just kissed the whiteness of the paper and it came away clean.
The old palace at Hatfield had been the royal nursery for generations, chosen for its clean air and proximity to London. It was an old building, small-windowed and dark-beamed.
