review: anne of hollywood by carol wolper

Carol Wolper's racy Anne of Hollywood brings the story of Anne Boleyn into 21st century Hollywood. The update works amazingly well. Here Henry is the charismatic head of a media conglomerate, Mary is a fun-loving pothead, and George is an actor rumored to have hooked up with a frat brother. Wolper does an excellent job of coming up with a modern role for each of the historic characters. There's even a plausible explanation for Henry not being divorced from Catherine (they do live separately) before dating Anne. This incredibly fun novel is full of delicious scandal and plenty of sex.
5/5
