Descrições do Produto

Contracapa

EDWARD is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown. . . .

JANE is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than in romance. Unfortunately for Jane, Edward has arranged to marry her off to secure the line of succession. And there’s something a little odd about her intended . . .

GIFFORD is a horse. That is, he’s an Eðian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated). Every day at dawn he becomes a noble chestnut steed—but then he wakes at dusk with a mouthful of hay. It’s all very undignified.

THE PLOT THICKENS as Edward, Jane, and G are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, our heroes will have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it’s off with their heads?

The comical, fantastical, romantical, entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey but not really

Lady Jane Grey, sixteen, is about to be married to a total stranger—and caught up in an insidious plot to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But that’s the least of Jane’s problems. She’s about to become Queen of England.

Like that could go wrong.

“The Tudors meets Monty Python. Prepare to laugh and gasp and clutch your pearls.”—Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling author of the Shatter Me series

“History, humor, and unexpected magic come together in this marvelous story.”—Jessica Day George, New York Times bestselling author of Silver in the Blood

Por Vamos Ler AVALIADOR TOP 1000 em 24 de novembro de 2016
Formato: Capa dura
Eu acho que nunca ri tanto com um livro quanto com esse aqui. A inteligência da narração e forma de contar a estória me cativaram desde as primeiras páginas até o final.

Escrita a SEIS mãos, o livro conta um história alternativa do reinado da história da coroa inglesa alguns anos antes de Elizabeth I assumir o poder. A melhor parte de todo o livro definitivamente foi a narração omnisciente das três autoras. Elas contavam a estória da Edward, Jane e G de uma forma descontraída e cheia de referências da nossa cultura pop. Exemplos disso são menções indiretas à Game of Thrones.

Recomendo MUITO, para quem gosta, o audiobook. A interpretação da narradora é fantástica. Ela dá entonações e velocidade ao texto de acordo com o contexto e só deixa tudo mais engraçado e divertido.

Apesar de ser engraçadíssimo e irreverente, a estória em si é bem simples. Muito bem amarrada e com um ritmo perfeito. Amei que elas pulavam alguns dias para seguir em frente com a estória e não se detinham muito tempo em alguns conflitos. Mas em alguns momentos a estória é até um pouco bobinha. Se fosse contada em um tom mais sério, que estamos acostumados a ver em outros livros de YA, não teria nenhum tipo de atrativo fora ser uma história alternativa da sucessão da coroa inglesa. De qualquer forma, a simplicidade do enredo combinou muito com o tom da narração, tornando a leitura altamente agradável.

É do meu conhecimento que as autoras escreverão mais dois livros de histórias alternativas como esse. Um eu tenho certeza que é sobre Jane Austen, mas o outro já não lembro mais.

O livro é maravilhoso. Tanto a edição que é linda e super divertida, quanto a história que não peca em nada quanto à romance, amizade, comédia, aventura, fantasia. Todo o conteúdo do livro é super agradável. A relação entre os personagens é construída de uma forma impecável, e sendo um livro escrito por três autoras diferentes ele não perde em nenhum momento o ritmo e a fluidez, é praticamente impossível saber qual delas escreve determinada parte, e isso é um ponto extremamente positivo. Os romances abordados na história são muito bem desenvolvidos e o elemento mágico que é introduzido no enredo funciona super bem, dando um toque especial a esse reconto de uma história que originalmente foi tão trágica. Existem várias reviravoltas inesperadas na história e o senso de humor das autoras torna tudo ainda mais divertido de se ler. É um livro apaixonante que vale muito a pena conferir.

O livro é um monte de altos e baixos da história e dos personagens. Tem o romance mais fofo que já li na vida (talvez não tão fofo quando 'A História do Cerco de Lisboa' do Saramago), tem personagens bem construídos, tem mulheres fortes, tem fantasia que mistura humanos e animais, tem comédia, tem drama e tem lutas! Dá pra pedir mais?

Ah, e ainda tem a presença forte das autoras no meio da narração. As vezes só pra explicar algo e outra só pra te apavorar.

Dá pra sentir frios na barriga, momentos em que a gente torce pelo que for que a gente quer que aconteça e outros momentos em que apenas não dá pra ler de tão "AI MEU DEUS" que a gente tá. Recomendo demais!

Apesar do resto do livro estar intacto, a parte lateral das folhas estava mal cortada, com bordas irregulares. Não prejudicou a leitura, mas não era o aspecto desejado para um livro novo.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Hysterically hilarious historical fantasy about Jane Grey 7 de junho de 2016
Por Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
My criteria for my first read of the year usually is as follows: an author I know and love, a book I’ve been highly anticipating and something that’s easy to read. My Lady Jane easily met all three requirements, so I didn’t hesitate to dive right into it on the first of January. And, truth be told, I couldn’t have picked a better choice! Jane Grey is known in actual history to be the “nine day queen”, Edward VI’s successor for a little over a week. No one really knows what happened, and in response to the “what if” hanging in the air, authors Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows worked together to tell the (not so true) (but oh so fun) tale of the Lady Jane Grey.

My Lady Jane is a book that is meant to entertain in a gloriously funny, satisfying way. The narration is excellent, complete with wry observations, witty retorts and a dash of whimsy. I was hooked right from the start! (And no, it’s not just because I find British royal history fascinating, though that was definitely another reason I enjoyed it.) I loved the tone, which made it feel like I was reading someone’s journal or hearing a storyteller tell the tale. I loved the switches between characters, because it was all too interesting to discover what was going on with each individual. I loved the humor, because it is so rare for a novel to make me laugh out loud (and I did laugh reading this one, and multiple times). I loved the magic, which was simple but still so entertaining. It was certainly all too easy to get swept up in learning what was to become of Jane, Guildford and Edward, and it was just impossible to do anything but see these three through to the end of their story.

Can you tell I was happily entertained by this tale? Because I was! The combination of magic, history and humor (with just a tiny bit of romance) was utterly irresistible. Whether you’re fascinated by actual history or a total newbie to Jane’s story, this novel is guaranteed to make you crack a smile, if not elicit fully on belly laughs. I know I enjoyed it, and I certainly think that plenty of other readers will too.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A fantastic blend of history, satire, and magic! 14 de setembro de 2016
Por Brittany - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
MY LADY JANE is such a fun and unique concept. There isn’t a lot of satire out there in YA right now and this was such a fun way to bring both history and humor together. The book is told by narrators who frequently interrupt their own story-telling to add notes for the reader and inform them of historical inaccuracies, fun facts, or just silly tidbits. It was a lot of fun and really reminded me some of wonderfully comedic Mel Brooks movies in which characters often break the 4th wall to address the audience directly. It’s even more fun to incorporate satire with a historical account (or rather, a quite fictionalized historical account) because of all the anachronisms and pop culture references that really make the book even more funny!

Admittedly, I don’t know a lot about the story of Lady Jane Grey. Obviously by now, I know the broader points of history (and I still blame my middle school and high school education for a seriously lack of historical knowledge) so I think the book could have been a bit more fun if I was more of a history buff. I know a few friends who love history and have an extensive knowledge on historical events who took a little more joy from the story overall, so that’s really just a personal experience that unfortunately can’t helped. I will say, though, that the book was enjoyable whether you know the history or not! I had a basic understanding but details are explained and even if you don’t care about the true story, the book will carry you through with a fun historical-fiction romp (and they change the ending anyway so I suppose it doesn’t matter too much in the end)!

The concept of Eðians (people who magically change to and from an animal form) was so much fun! I loved how it was incorporated in to the book in so many ways — from selecting to change to being cursed, the support and blatant rejection, the people in disguise — it was a great way to incorporate magic from start to finish. I liked that it was the only real form of magic in the book so it brought that magical element but didn’t turn into a full-out fantasy. It was the perfect way to alter history just a bit and keep things tied to the actual facts.

I just loved the collaboration from Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton, and Cynthia Hand. They really put together a fun and unique book and MY LADY JANE easily found a place in so many readers’ hearts. MY LADY JANE easily appeals to fans of The Princess Bride with its historical feel and slight satire, Disney fans for its animal magic and pop culture references, and historical fans who love a twist on history. There are direct references to books and movies like The Princess Bride, A Game of Thrones, Monty Python, and I’m pretty sure I saw Tangled in there! It also had the magic of all of seeing everything combined and so many loves in one place. I laughed out loud so many times and the book was just so clever!

I had a weird experience in which reading this book was so enjoyable and yet it felt really long! The book is over 500 pages so it’s no speed-read but the content was so light and fun that I feel like I should have finished it fasted. Maybe it was just my reading schedule… but I do feel like it could have been a little bit shorter. A lot of people said the book just flew by and it didn’t feel to long until I was nearing the end and it still wasn’t over. Don’t get me wrong — I was enjoying the whole thing — but there was just something that was off that was making me anxious for things to wrap up. That’s seriously one of my only qualms, though. MY LADY JANE was always fun and these authors did a great job of putting things together!

5.0 de 5 estrelas I love this book!!! 30 de junho de 2016
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
Yes, I stayed up until 4:00 am to finish MY LADY JANE by the Lady Janies. And it was so very worth it!!! This is my new favorite book! The Lady Janies have taken the tragic, horrific story of Lady Jane Grey and made it something hysterical to read. It is very clear that this a work of historical FICTION. There are details that are true to history, too, which makes a book like this that much more fantastic. I LOVE historical fiction and since I have always been uber fascinated with Lady Jane Grey, this book fed my love of reading like nothing else has! This book is simply delightful!

What makes this book even more super-fantastic are the wonderful

references to modern-day movies/stories!!

It is a clear tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies, LADYHAWKE--"always together, eternally apart." I hope this book sends millions of people running to watch this movie because it's fantastic!!!

There is a reference to The Red Wedding in GAME OF THRONES!!!

To my great delight, it is also a wonderful tribute to the amazing and super-fantastic THE PRINCESS BRIDE!!!!

Lady Jane is described as a Hermoine-type character with a love of reading, loving libraries, and wild [red] hair!!!

Elizabeth (yes, THE Queen Elizabeth) is a Professor McGonagall-type character!!!

Lady Jane uses a frying pan to beat up soldiers, just like Rapunzel in TANGLED!!!! That's quite possibly my favorite part!!! "Frying pans! Who knew?!"

G reminds me so much of R in WARM BODIES! He's also portrayed as a would-be, possibly-could-have-been William Shakespeare! And his constant, "Oh, that's good. I need to write that down," is wonderfully reminiscent of the fantastic DRAGONHEART!!!

There is even a reference to JAWS!!! "We're going to need a bigger sword!"

I know I haven't even come close to mentioning all the wonderful stories the Lady Janes have referenced in the wonderful MY LADY JANE, so if you see others, I'd LOVE to compare notes. This book was worth the impulse buy, reading it all in one day, and staying up until 4:00 am!!!

5.0 de 5 estrelas Fantasy, history, and comedy - 3 things that rarely mingle together in a book 24 de agosto de 2016
Por Alex E Ray - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
It has been a long time since a book has made me Laugh. Out. Loud. And that's what I was doing throughout this entire book. Rarely do you get a combination of fantasy and historical retelling AND comedy. It just doesn't happen. Yet these three wonderful authors, all with incredible resumes of their own, crafted such a book with lots of humor, moments of poignancy, and a much better ending to a terribly bloody time in history. Because sometimes I just don't want a book to drag me down with all the feels. Because sometimes I want to read a book that lifts me up and makes me feel light as a cloud. (Sidenote: As it happens, I was reading this book along side Alexandra Bracken's In the Afterlight, which is wonderful but so weighty with emotions and struggles that I truly needed the humor and buoyancy of My Lady Jane. Just saying.)

If you are searching for such a book, THIS IS THAT BOOK.

P.S. I AM SO HAPPY THEY ARE WRITING 2 MORE JANE BOOKS!

5.0 de 5 estrelas It is a loose historical fiction novel 25 de novembro de 2016
Por Dora Landa - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
On my personal scale, I rate it a 98%. I absolutely loved it! This was such nice, amusing, and entertaining. I absolutely loved the style in which this book was written. Most of the time it's the main character telling the story or sometimes it's in several points of views, but in this book it's told by the authors! I know I may not be making any sense right now, but that is the best way I can explain it. You can clearly see the voice of each author and I loved it. The characters were great. I laughed so hard on several occasions, and the characters really captured my heart. This is a loose historical fiction novel, some don't really consider it a historical but I do. To each their own, I guess. If you like comedic, awkward situations, and England then this is a book for you.
