Short of time travel what better way to experience the ways of the court, the arbitrary nature of the law and how precarious it was to be close to the king.
Hilary Mantel has an extraordinary talent with words. At the beheading of Anne Boleyn: "a sound like a whistle through a keyhole: the body exsanguinates, and its flat little presence becomes a puddle of gore."
My dictionary describes exsanguinates as "rarely used," and this book is a rare treat, hopefully to be followed by the final act, both on TV and on the page.
However Bring Up the Bodies is an amazing book. I found it much easier to read (may be that I had got used to Hilary Mantel's style) and I loved being in this world of intrigue and atmosphere. Truly compelling stuff and I may have another go at Wolf Hall.
I am hoping that Hilary Mantel continues with the jane Seymore reign next because I need her version of events as to what happened next. The characters are amazing. It is an excellent and thought provoking read.
