A fantastic read.

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

A brilliant book following the life of Thomas Cromwell from his early life, through his relationship with Cardinal Wolsey and his rise in the court of Henry V111. The book takes you through his role in the events which lead to the downfall of Katherine of Aragon and Henry's obsession with and marriage to Ann Boleyn. Beautifully written and a fabulous read. I dreaded finishing the book but was consoled with the fact that I had the sequel 'Bring up the bodies' which I have sadly just finished.

The book club that I belong to selected this book for our May reading. I haven't read any of Hilary Mantel's other books but I will now!The book is rather a tour de force and I know I won't finish it by the next book club meeting.I certainly didn't know anything about Thomas Cromwell and although the dialogue is fiction the actions are obviously based on fact.The characters are certainly brought alive and so much better than dull history books of my school days.We all know what happens in the end to Thomas but it doesn't stop this from being a stonking good read!
