“A Favourite of the Queen” proved rather a tedious experience, and perhaps the worst novel I’ve read about Elizabeth I.

Too much “telling”, not “showing”, is the biggest problem. Don’t explain what characters are like; show it via action and dialogue.

The narrative is slow moving, partly because of the lack of action, and partly because of the consistent use of the passive voice. It’s dry information that we get, rather than a lively story.

Something about Jean Plaidy’s books keep me coming back for more. Perhaps it’s her obvious love for English history, which I share, that draws me back. I wish she’d focused less on turning out as greater quantity of novels as possible and concentrated more on quality writing. A novel like this one should be revised about 20 times, yet this at best feels like a fifth draft. If she'd redrafted it more there wouldn't be such notable repetition of certain themes. ( )

I'll write a more detailed review later, but for now I'll just say that I was a bit disappointed in this. The style was more suited to juvenile literature than I am used to from the author's other writings as Philippa Carr or Victoria Holt - or maybe I've just become more discriminating (or jaded?). Plus it compares unfavorably to a novel that I read years ago titled "The Young Elizabeth"; I don't remember the names of the authors other than that they were husband and wife, and had written the novelization of the stage play of the same name that they had scripted (from the late 1952's or early 1960's IIRC). At any rate, that novel was published in a Reader's Digest Condensed Book that my mother had (and may have still). I borrowed it to read, and it stuck with me. May have to ask around if anyone else remembers that novel/play ( )

published (at least in the US0 at almost the last moment "gay" could be used in its traditional sense; romantic version of Elizabeth and Leicester

Highly recommended. Another amazing work by Jean Plaidy that should not be missed. ( )

Robert Dudley came from a family of ambitious men, and their ambition had been their undoing. This Dudley however found himself attracted to the Queen of England, both by his ambition and personally.
This is a comprehensive look at the life of Dudley, through the scandal of the death of his wife Amy Robsart, his daliance with Douglass Sheffield, and his secret marriage to Lettice Knolleys. All the while trying to maintain his position at Court, and his place in the heart of the Queen. ( )
