I am a big fan of Hilary Mantel - I first discovered her with 'A Place of Greater Safety' which over the years I must have re-read several times. Unlike many successful authors Ms Mantel seems to have more than two or three really good books in her canon. This one I think is skilfully deployed but not to her highest standard. The subtle way in which she observes human frailty is engaging and amusing with of course the darker side which we see in works like Beyond Black.
This is a good read by a skilled author but compared with the recent Henrician novels which have rightly made her rich and famous, it is mid range - but still worth it.
