the other boleyn girl

I finished The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory. I liked it. I didn't love it, but it was a fun read. I enjoy "historical fiction," usually. The part of Mary and her husband was sort of weird, though. I didn't mind that she decided to be "Nobody," but she and William fell in love so quickly, so completely, it seemed really out of left field. But then, maybe that's sort of how love is, just comes at you from weird places, at weird times. Still, I didn't get a sense of them really falling in love, more like he saw her, she saw him and all of a sudden it was this big passionate love affair.
