    One thought on “Mary Queen Of Scots: The Fair Devil Of Scotland”

    1. This was not historical fiction, this was history told in the most entretaining way possible. Jean Plaidy makes you forget you are reading a history book because she is a master story teller. I love reading history when you are enjoying yourself!

    2. Brilliantly told history of Mary Queen of Scots. It reads like a story, like history should be read. A clearly sympathetic look at the young Queen's tragic life.

    3. gives you a little insight on how people of the royal courts were and what the people would do to be a part of that inner circle. Also talks about Mary's relationship with Victoria and many others she's allowed to get close to her including her husbands and consorts. the story seemed to drag along in a lot of places and sometimes would be hard to resume reading.

    4. At first I was hesitant to read this one, given the sub title. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised for the majority of the book, despite it being written in 1975.

    5. I really enjoyed this one. Scotland holds a special place in my heart. It's where I fell in love once a long time ago. It moves me like very few places on this earth do. I've always wanted to know more about Mary. She fascinated me so much. And her story most perfectly comes alive in an absolutely pitch perfect writing.

    6. I am trying to figure out why this considered a modern classic. The characters were flat on a good day and the flow was pretty good. Other than that, not much going on here.
