    Thanks for your feedback!

    Hilary Mantel's Booker Prize winning novel plumbs the psyche of a multiskilled but increasingly 'bloodless' Thomas Cromwell. Despite this being a work of fiction I thought it interesting to learn of the more tender aspects of the main character who is usually depicted as a villain and little else. Thomas More, on the other hand, is not as saintly as you would expect and his obsession with brutal forms of justice is brilliantly conveyed in the novel. Tudor England in the reign of Henry VIII comes to life in "Wolf Hall" whose only drawback is the confusing use of the third person, 'he' to refer mostly to Cromwell himself, but also to other characters. A great read, especially for historical fiction buffs!

    Wolf Hall

    A sweeping historical reminding us of our sometimes inglorious pathways.

    Wolf Hall

    Interesting. A different way to write and read. Mostly conversation, told from the point of view of Thomas Cromwell, a commoner who achieved much power and wealth under Henry VIII due to his cleverness and ruthlessness as a lawyer and financial manager. Anne Boleyn forces herself onto the throne. Thomas More tortures and kills suspected heretics, but winds up being executed for refusing to accept the king's divorce of Katherine and marriage to Anne. Hilary Mantel does as masterful job of putting the reader into the daily thoughts of Cromwell as he maneuvers the king and his court.

    Great historical fiction

    Great book, very well researched and interesting. An easy read on a complex subject. The book can be a bit long, but it never feels exhausting, repetitive or wordy. I loved the characters, really well developed

    Wonderful read

    This book has been reviewed thousands of times by now, but I'll add my opinion that it's a wonderful read about Tudor England and the members of Henry VIII's court.
