One thought on “Anne of Hollywood

  1. Kylie Cheung

    The unforgettable story of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII s best loved but most tragic wife, is recreated at least once a year in some dry, predictable historical novel and in Wolper s Anne of Hollywood , it is recreated once again but with a twist An avid fan of Anne Boleyn eager to get my hands on just about any fictional depiction of her, I ve searched and searched and believe me I haven t found another like this If you think about it, the ruthless and amorous court of Tudor England shares a lot wit [...]

    I won this book from and I enjoyed every second of it It s the story of Anne Boleyn and Henry Tudor but set in modern day California It is a fun tale told completely from Anne s perspective, Henry s mindset doesn t really factor in The characters are all 21st first century but Wolper makes it easy to see what their role would have been in Tudor England The book follows Anne s romance and relationships with Henry, with her older sister Mary who used to date Henry, and various pseudo friends that [...]

    I feel like I m the target of some kind of vigilante justice but what am I guilty of Being with a king Anne of Hollywood is a fun twist on Tudor history Anne Boleyn, a beautiful and ambitious woman, marries her sister s ex boyfriend, Henry Tudor, a man so rich and powerful, he s almost royalty Anne is, by Hollywood standards, a nobody, and she s being punished for marrying above her And for not just slipping into the background, as a good little trophy wife is meant to do She s dangerous, and mu [...]

    When I first started reading this book I sort of figured I would not enjoy it Certain adult situations could have been worded tactfully I would be a tad embarrassed to lend this to my mom because of certain scenarios However, the story drew me in and I enjoyed it I am grateful a certain character got some backbone at the end of the story Per FTC guidelines I must disclose that I received this book for free through First Reads.

  5. Michael

    I don t even know where to start with this book was just awful I should probably point out that, as a recipient of a giveaway, I probably would not be a normal target reader for this book That being said, I thought this novel would take the heart of a well known story from history and reinvent it within the confines of contemporary societyd the intro letter accompanying the book in the mail promised a witty re imagining, but all I got was a shallow caricature of a historical event.First off, we [...]

  6. Elizabeth Mahon

    When I first heard about this book, I thought, You have to be kidding me Anne Boleyn in Hollywood Still there was something about the idea that intrigued me Perhaps it was the fact that this mash up didn t turn Anne into a werewolf, a vampire or a succubus So I downloaded a sample of the book onto my NOOK, and gave it a quick read What I read made me want to read the whole book, but I confess, I took the book out of the library instead of buying it A girl has to economize The idea of translating [...]

    Everyone knows the tragic, soap opera like though, true story of Anne Boleyn, who seduced Henry VIII away from his wife Catherine of Aragon and convinced the monarch to break with the Catholic church all with the promise of providing him with a son, which she never had.Author Carol Wolper puts a twist on Anne s often explored story by placing it in modern day holiday, where powerful connections, seduction and Hollywood near royalty are just are important as they once were in Tudor era England Wo [...]

  8. Mary (BookHounds)

    MY THOUGHTS ABSOLUTELY LOVED ITI mean really LOVE LOVE LOVED this one This is brilliant So, you probably already know the story of Anne Boleyn and the Tudors, but you have never read anything as interesting and fun as this new interpretation Henry is re imagined as a billionaire power broker that rules Hollywood as his kingdom Anne is the daughter of a social climbing entertainment lawyer with two siblings that are great successes Mary had a fling with Henry years ago while she was a young model [...]

    Anne Boleyn has never been anybody special, until she catches the eye of Henry Tudor, king of Hollywood s elite A list After watching her older sister, Mary, be added to a backlist of Henry s discarded mistresses, Anne is certain she has a foolproof plan Now she only has to keep him interested, convincing him that marriage is in his best interest, if only everyone else in Hollywood do not constantly try to knock Anne off her pedestal.Against the backdrop of the rich and powerful, Anne must navig [...]

  10. Jessica

    Reading the summary, this book sounded SO good That is probably why I was so unprepared for how boring it ended up being The story of Anne Boleyn was so interesting and scandalous, but this book was nowhere near capturing that emotion The main problem I had with this book was the writing style Almost the entire story was made up of thoughts and descriptions with very little dialogue action going on whatsoever This made the story seem to drag on and I found myself skimming pages at a time because [...]

  11. Kat A

    This started out slowly, got really good in the middle, and then sort of petered out to an unsatisfying finish If you don t go for an execution, there really isn t much else that will do, really I love, love, love historical fiction and this is definitely that kind of book Wolper takes the story of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn and sets it in 2012 Los Angeles I really liked the way she changes the characters, for example making Thomas Cromwell a Theresa, and changing Thomas Wyatt the poet s name an [...]

  12. Cecilia

    I still have yet to finish The Tudors with the ever lusty Jonathan Rhys Meyer because my DVD player broke down, but with 2 seasons under my belt, I feel confident that I knew all there was to know about Anne Boleyn to dive into anne of hollywood Unfortunately, the scandalous lives of the 16th century nobility do not mirror the scandalous lives of the Hollywood elite as well as I had expected The characters and their motives, while present, fell a little flat, and not enough time was spent to dev [...]

  13. Kate

    So terrible that I checked it out, started reading, started to skim it, and then returned it the very next day because I didn t want it hanging around my house In fact, when the library s automated returns system glitched and wouldn t accept the book at first, I felt a surge of panic at the prospect of being forced to spend another day with this title hanging around I was tempted by this one because I m interested in the Anne Boleyn story I think the Anne Boleyn plot, or at least how we conceive [...]

  14. Stephanie Tracy

    This was a really fun, witty twist on the classic and tragic tale of Anne Boleyn The author did a great job setting up a believable and easy to understand modern setting Hollywood, of course, led by the King, a billionaire businessman, Henry Tudor Anne Boleyn is, of course, a beautiful, stylish and clever girl who catches his heart during his long divorce with his first wife Catherine Aragon Right from the first page I was sucked into the story which immediately struck me as wildly clever The au [...]

  15. Melia

    Loved the idea of the book but there were too many things from Tudor England that just don t translate to modern times The religion aspect, the divorce being a scandal, Anne being reviled by the public, Cromwell and Wolsey, the political scheming just doesn t ring true to the actual historical events and felt like a letdown Anne comes out of nowhere and captures the king of Hollywood Big deal Then she loses him very quickly Again, it didn t seem like a big deal as she started over and began a ne [...]

    I will be back with review Enjoyed the book so much.Entertaining Tinsel Town novel that moves quickly Enjoyed Enjoyed Fun read.Anne Boleyn wants to be Hollywood media mogul Henry Tudor s queen, and she doesn t care that her sister dated him previously like most soap operas Anne succeeds in her quest, but, unfortunately, some people aren t happy about their marriage, including Henry s first wife and his business advisor both would love to see Anne lose her crown and throne Author Carol Wolper put [...]

  17. Kristy McRae

    I was really excited about the premise of this book a modern day retelling of the Anne Boleyn Henry VIII story Sadly, I was disappointed I couldn t find a single character that I liked or sympathized with I kept reading, hoping that would change.but, nope I also felt like the author was throwing profanity around just for the shock value I m not a prude, and colorful language doesn t bother me, if it seems appropriate to the context, or is used in a subtle manner I felt like I was getting beaten [...]

    I m definitely not a typical reader of what, yes, pretty much does qualify as chick lit, but Carol is a lovely friend, and I ve enjoyed her other work, so naturally when I stumbled on a copy of this recently, I had to pick it up It s quick, light, fun, and has even for a non Tudor afficionado like myself just the right amount of tongue in cheek historical angle in its modern day Hollywood update to those figures And I actually do have a friend who is a huge nerd for all things Anne Boleyn who I [...]

  20. Amy

    I enjoyed reading this book it was a guilty pleasure.This book I would call an adult R rated version of Gossip girl set in Hollywood recast with the Tudors.I love Tudor history,and Gossip girl so this book was a great book for me.The author I think wrote a story that was interesting using public figures from the past but setting them in world of today s Hollywood where people are famous for being seen with the right people or for just being rich.In a lot of ways I don t think times have changed [...]

  21. Anna Fierce

    Check out my blog for detailed reviews and PROS This was a good escape book or beach read I liked the way she had the story divided between four narrators, with three of them in third person and Anne s in first person It was clever and it workedNS I felt like Ms Wolper tried too hard sometimes instead of just letting the story flow naturally The sex and drug references, while not unrealistic, felt forced and awkward I also thought she tried too hard to draw perfect parallels from the real stor [...]

  22. Ket Lamb

    Anne of Hollywood is a juicy story about a stunning girl with a pedigree who seduces a powerful prince in Hollywood Author Carol Wolper clearly knows all the twists and turns it takes to rise to the top in this ruthless city and delivers them in a page turner loaded with manipulative, selfish characters Framing the plot by re imagining the story of Anne Boleyn and Henry Tudor in modern day Southern California, however, is heavy handed and unnecessary This TMZ fluff would have been better off wit [...]

  23. Vennie

    I enjoyed this book very much I was glad to win it, but, would have bought it if I hadn t The book is a story of modern day Anne Boleyn,a California blond She meets Henry Tudor, a very attractive corporate mogul Every star and starlet in Hollywood wants to grab him for one reason or another, but, Henry only wants Anne It s a love story with a tale from history You have many hidden agendas, traitorous friends, a furious ex wife , and schemes abound Anne marries Henry, and so now the challenge is [...]

  24. Heather

    My memory for my British history is severely lacking, so this was a new story for me Anne of Hollywood is billed as a retelling of the Tudor history in modern day Hollywood I wonder too if there may also be some ties to Jackie Collins, but having not read any of her novels I can t say definitively.I would bill this novel as a beach read entertaining enough to keep with it, but not engaging enough to make you think and ponder when the reading is done.I received a copy of this book as a First Read [...]

  25. Heather

    I did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped to I was excited about reading a modern day setting for the life of Anne Boleyn I didn t feel that any of the characters were likable enough for me to have a vested interest in the outcome of the book This is probably why it took me longer than I expected to finish it Of course, there is no suspense about the ending given the fact that this is about Henry and Anne, so I m not sure how much that matters What should have been a quick read was not so [...]

  26. Chanpreet

    This alternative telling of Anne Boleyn s life is very inriguing Henry VIII is a modern king amd movie mogul and Anne becomes his queen, displacing Catherine It was interesting to see how Ms Wolper adapted the well known doom filled tale of Anne Boleyn to make it modern and relevant The book is divided into chapters from the view points of different characters and it makes the book so much complicated You re given a look into each character making them dynamic Ms.Wolper has done a fantastic j [...]

  27. Jeannine

    This is nota book women can be proud to read It is an Anne Bolyn story retold in modernday Hollywood It just does not work in this current time without bringing out the feminist inside you that just wants to scream at these ridiculous women for succumbing to a man just because he has power and money It just made me want to scream and get these women into some sort of program or detox if there is such a thing for patheticness Anne seemed like a very intelligent woman who used that to win Henry bu [...]

  28. Sarah

    Just got this book a day before I was off to the camp I was so trilled to start to read the story I really like fanfictions stuff and this book was pretty good and I have hard time imagine the characters in the modern I just kept picturing them in tudor era styles The ending was rather interesting how that Henry rids Anne, just like hollywood style and i see them all time in magazines At least Anne didn t die that makes me happy One thing, I have hard time imagining Theresa Cromwell cuz it is s [...]

  29. Rekara

    I was a little nervous when I started reading this book because when some authors take on re tellings, they tend to get so focused on keeping elements from the original story that their creativity comes off as corny.This was done really tastefully I am into England s political history and things like that I ve seen this story told in a million different ways, so it was nice to see a new spin on it

  30. Victoria Johnston

    A highly entertaining and unusual read This book shouldn t work at all but it does I couldn t put this down and ended up reading it in a day.Anne Boleyn s story is brought into the modern era and it works The characters are interesting and don t lose much of their historical characteristics along the way Well written and entertaining.Leave the history behind and give this book a chance because it is oe of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long while.
