    Bring up the Bodies

    Just as good ad Wolf Hall, with beautiful writing, a superb sense of space and time and a sensitive penetration of Thomas Cromwell's complex personality. Equally penetrating is her insight into both Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Read Wolf Hall first and then try and be patient until Hilary Mantel completes the third book. Pure pleasure.

    Bring up the bodies!!!! Hilary Mantel

    I found BUTB quite a shift after Wolf Hall. The cast of characters was almost insurmountable but, persistence overcome!!! It became more and more difficult to 'put down'. Understandably one doesn't get the opportunity to become too familiar with each character, and indeed, it was difficult at times to determine what was to be attributed to Thomas Cromwell. Not a read for the prudish!!! BUT come to terms with this aspect and you can be promised an enjoyable read and certainly a challenge to any preconceived ideas one might have about English history. Thank you Hilary, and get the ball rolling again for more of the same! B.

    Bring up the Bodies

    Thomas Cromwell is written in the first tense, sometimes second and sometimes third which can be really confusing as there are a number of Thomas's in the story and often they converse together which leaves the reader confused. But if you have read Wolf Hall and persist it is a fabulous read and well worth it. I would love to see a book three to follow on the story in this amazing time in history

    Bring up the Bodies

    Brilliant follow up to Wolf Hall. Couldn't put it down. If you are a fan of Tudor England these two books must not be missed. The writing is highly evocative - you can see Henry VIII & his court through Hilary Mantel's writing. If only there were more to follow!

    A brutal masterpiece

    As powerful and compelling as its title. You know the Henry VIII/Anne Boleyn saga. This time it's relayed through another protagonist. Thomas Cromwell, complex and ruthless, rose from tradesman and mercenary to become the king's supporter and confidant, Master Secretary and eventually Lord Chancellor. He used his enormous influence with skill and subtlety, helping free Henry to wed the bold Anne Boleyn. This book follows their brief marriage to its conclusion, giving a deep picture of the life and times in Henry's England. Marvellous. You might like to read "Wolf Hall" first, since it introduces Cromwell, his life and career.
