I've been swamped with homework this summer, and I have a week to read 300 pages of Children of Henry VIII.

There are no CliffsNotes or Sparknotes.

So has anyone read this book?


Wanna give me a summary?

Henry VIII was a womanising King of England and in the end they had to chop his head off because he was getting fat.

300 pages in a week is pretty easy

On second thought, I don't think any of the Pit actually has the intelligence to have read this book.

I'll just cram it all in whilst trying to do English and Biology projects.

Ok so Henry VIII finds out that he is a wizard from Hagrid and his uncle and aunt were hiding it from him and finds out that an EVIL WIZARD NAMED VOLDEMORT killed his parents and not a car and that the scar on his forhead was actually from a magic killing spell that he was the only one to survive. so hagrid ( who is a large burly bear ) takes him to a train and he goes to a castle that is also a wizard school. he meets a girl named herminoene ( who later becomes hot ) and a boy named ron ( same ) . they become BFFs . they go to shcool and there is an old man named dumbledore and he is the wizard princiapl of the school and they learn about magic. then they meet snape who is mean to henry VII and they think he is going to steal a magic stone that makes you live forever but really BOLDEMORT IS TRYING TO STEAL THE STONe. and snape is protectingg it. anywasyus they try to steal the stone also ( i dunno why ) and they find a chess board and play chess then hanry VIII melts a guys face off ( probably with super powers or magic of love ) the end.

Don't ask me, I'm from The Pit.

First thing I'd do is learn to recognise when someone's not taking you seriously.

I know what you have told me without even having touched the book.

It's the specific things each of them do and how they effect the country and especially the Protestant Church.

Yes, I know this, unfortunately, we are talking 300 pages of fact with readers notes.

EDIT: And to all you bitching at me for wanting to take the fast route, are you telling me that the Pit always does their assignments in school with no cheating whatsoever?

It's more the fact that you tried to take the fast route, failed, and then proceded to act like the Pit was full of idiots who couldn't read it...missing the part where you came here because you found it difficult to read.

Edit: And no, I never cheat, as opposed to just about every kid I know in the honors classes. Either I do it myself or I don't do it.

well simple,

mary tried to abolish it and kill off all the protestants,

liz made it powerful, gave **** loads of money, pissed of the spanish, killed mary

ed didnt do much, his lord protectorate basically tried to make the country a protestant milartary state and run the country himself....

I found myself pressed for time with other things to do that were of equal importance.

It does not take a week to read a 300 book...

no,

liz had mary executed after several years of having mary locked up in various prisons,

it was siad that mary was organising a revolt against liz, this been treason liz was forced into signing her death warrent.

i havent studied this stuff for about 3 years but i'm doing the best i can,

i'm not sure if she was maaried to Phillip, i think it was more that mary was the daughter of catherine of aragion, who i think was his sister.... ( ? )

but the fact that a protestent queen ( liz ) kiled of mary, a catholic queen with family ties to spain was probably enough anyway....

we can try and work some out now if you want?

Fair enough. Which then leads to you having to pick what is really more important, or just do everything half assed. Or you could just read it, unless your day is completely packed 300 pages shouldn't be too difficult, even in Old English.

It is.

With no notes.

I might just read it and use my friends notes.

Well then, with a publication date of 2008, how can it be written in 'Olde English'? Just read it, we all go through the same thing at one point or another.

A lot of it is just thrown together information and quotes from OLD biographies of the various children.

ie, it isn't changed very much at all.
