5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 26 Jun 2012
This review is from: Bring Up the Bodies (Hardcover)
A really brilliant sequel to Wolf Hall. I found it difficult to read - it takes time to acclimatise to her writing style - but the metaphors she uses and the world she imagines are stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four wheels good, two wheels better, 19 April 2011
This review is from: The Bicycle Book (Hardcover)
I am reading this book because of a favourable review I read in the Sunday Times. The writing is pacey and gossipy, but talks about lots of interesting things. I have turned down dozens of page corners so I can look things up afterward I have finished.

I also like the fact that, despite its basic purpose of advertising two-wheeled travel, the book includes the downsides. In my opinion, the author is very likeable
