Free download After Elizabeth How James King of Scots Won the Crown of England in 1603 Download After Elizabeth How James King of Scots Won the Crown of England in 1603 ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free # Runner Up Saltire First Book of the Year AwardA brilliant history of the succession of James I of England and the shifting power and lethal politics that brought him to the throneIn the dawn of the 17th century when Mary ueen of Scots was dead and Elizabeth I grown old the eyes of the English turned to Mary’s son James VI of Scotland Leanda de Lisle's book focuses on the intense period of raised hopes and dashed expectations between Christmas 1602 and Christmas 1603 during which Elizabeth died James. Answering the uestion of how James won the race to succeed Elizabeth And how he got unpopular very uickly thereafterHe promised all things to all comers toleration to Catholics and reform to Puritans for example He couldn t possibly deliver on all of his promises There was reason for his being known as the wisest fool in Christendom And additionally he loathed the common people whereas Elizabeth Tudor had never met a crowd she didn t like and couldn t win overElizabeth s regime had been unpopular at the end of her rule but within a few years of James accession many would have given a great deal to have the Old ueen back People began celebrating her accession day again and not James Or later Charles Probably about 35 stars

This book barely eked out the second star I can t believe how disappointed I was I read this same authors Sisters Who Would Be ueen which was a riveting take on the entire Tudor succession crisis rife with plots and romance and tragedyThis book on the other hand has none of that It is a look at how James succeeded Elizabeth focusing on the pivotal year or two surrounding the event There is nowhere near the level of intrigue there s just a lot of plotting and many accusations of treason but nothing much actually happens For all that the author tries to convince us otherwise James is clearly seen as the viable alternativeThe first part which deals with the uncertainty surrounding the end of Elizabeth s reign is at least somewhat interesting But once she dies so does the momentum of this book About a hundred pages are devoted to describing James s progress from Scotland to England This is done in EXCRUTIATING detail daily entries on where he was what he spent and who he met up with who always happens to be the third cousin of a servant who once served the grandmother of someone s secret mistress or something to that effect While I appreciate a wealth of detail in historic books I don t need a day by day blow of his journey I ended up skipping fifty or sixty pages just because I couldn t take it anyThe third part is at least readable even if I did skim a few pages here and there But on the whole the book is just not very exciting and the whole thing feels like one small chapter in a much grander story waiting to be told Since this is Leanda s first novel I guess I m happy to report she improved by leaps and bounds with her second Still this was a huge disappointment
