    Thanks for your feedback!

    Fascinating insight into the life of Thomas Cromwell during the reign of Henry VIII. A very personal story of the Cromwell's life, however you would need a good understanding of history to follow the storyline. Hilary Mantel's style takes a bit of getting used to as much of the text and conversations are clearly aimed at the style in England in the 1520's. Well researched and an interesting read if you have an understanding of people and events during Henry's reign.

    Difficult to read

    I thought this book was disjointed. I had difficulty following the story in terms of the characters as it seems to jump around a lot. This is one of the few books I have read where I was looking forward to the end just so I could finish the book. Interesting topic, but I was not captivated.

    Very good

    Finally, a new take on Henry VIII. Mantel tells the tales of Henry’s court all through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell. Specifically, the novel describes his rise to power. The tone and language are captivating and the novel is quite atmospheric, even with the focus on characters. My only complaint is that she uses “He,” meaning Cromwell, a little too superfluously and when “He” is with other men (which is often), it can be a bit confusing.

    An interesting read.

    This was an interesting take on historical events and the people who lived them. At times it was hard to tell who was talking but overall worthwhile.
