I enjoyed the book but I am not a fan of Katherine Parr - she was the boring wife compared to the others. I know she had no choice in marrying Henry VIII but she also didn't try to make her mark either. It could have been that she was afraid of poking the bear so to speak. Jean Plaidy did a great job of outlining the dull life she lead with Henry but I am eager to move on to the next book in the series. ( )

what a sad life she had. marriage to 2 old farts that she looked after, then to Henry another old fart who had swx with her and blamed her for no kids, then to Seymour who was hot for her goddaughter Elizabeth, then had a child and died only about 35. ( )

“The Sixth Wife” proved rather a tedious experience and one of Jean Plaidy’s weakest novels. I’ve read several books about Katharine Parr, all of which were more engaging than this one.

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

To me, this is the worse characterisation of Henry VIII that I’ve ever read, and I’ve read a lot of novels that feature this fascinating king. The author over-describes Henry’s thoughts and “tells” us what he’s like too often. His deathbed scene is a melodramatic mess.

Regarding dialogue, this novel has an inconsistency in language. It’s a blend of old-style English and modern English, albeit the modern language is tainted not only with the passive voice, but with mixed-up syntax.

For example, at one point Henry VIII says: “It doth, Kate, and it shall. Thou mayest rest assured of that. Thou art good to kiss.” And later: “Are you a fool, Chancellor?”

Also compare: “There is no joy for me in this life if thou sharest it not with me” with “I would do you no harm.”

It’s not just inconsistent, it’s unbelievable that someone would radically alter their manner of speech this way. Ideally, the language should be contemporary, although I realise some people prefer it to be as authentic as possible, even though it slows the narrative flow. Point is, an author should pick one style and stay with it, and not keep mixing it up

Another annoying trait this author has is writing with hindsight. Her characters say or think prophetic things, which is too unrealistic.

For example, Thomas Seymour has this unrealistic feeling, which is as good as a premonition: >He was certain of ultimate success with the Princess Elizabeth; he felt sure she would one day be Queen of England.When he contemplated his good Catholic Queen Mary on the throne he could almost smell the fires of Smithfield. Why is it, he pondered, that she cannot give me sons? If she would but give me a son I should not be displeased with her. Why had he not another son? Why, why should sons be denied him? It seemed that the bells continually warned her: “Sons, sons, sons!””I think of those others… Anne Boleyn and Catharine Howard.” ( )

Katherine Parr escaped with both her neck and her life as the final wife of the monstrous King Henry VIII. She went on to marry the love of her life Thomas Seymore, only to find that he was not quite the man she thought him to be. ( )

Another great work by Jean Plaidy that should not be missed. ( )
