5.0 out of 5 stars Stupendous, 14 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Wolf Hall (Paperback)
I have never read a book which has lingered so long in my mind. The characters and their thoughts and actions are so human, the descriptions sparse yet atmospheric, the language eloquent without artifice: this book is a total triumph. Contrary to some readers, I found no confusion in identifying the 'he' who was talking, just read carefully and listen to the meaning,follow the flow of the story, then it's quite plain. I loved the history: time and again I dived into the Internet to look again at pictures of Anne or Mary, to find out timelines and dates, to study ancestries. No other book book has made me so involved. What a wonderful, wonderful novel.
