4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, bound to annoy the usual suspects with their fakey indignation., 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting book about how conservative politicians and pundits have, effectively. sold out their constituencies for years. Reminds me of how John Major said that he hated conservatives.

A good read, bound to annoy the usual suspects with their fakey indignation.

Not 5 stars as not much UK content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mrs Mantel has an odd writing style which is offputting for the first few pages. Once you get used to it draws you along through the story in a train of narrative that seems simple but is anything but.

It's hard to describe the writing style in Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies, but it's so powerful and almost hypnotic that you're drawn in and find yourself there, in that time and place and frame of mind!

I would compare it to Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin books. They, Mrs Mantel and O'Brian, really have nothing in common except that they demand you accept their narratives, but the work is so good they can do that and get away with it.

The story is the life of Thomas Cromwell, a poor Londoner made good, and his relationship to the Cardinal Wolsey and Henry VIII. Cromwell really existed, really did make good and is fictionalised brilliantly by Mrs Mantel. Of course social mobility was greater in 16th Century Britain than it is in 21st Century Britain.

There is no compromise in this book, no doffing of the cap to modern themes. It is bloody brilliant literature published across the grain of modern controlled thought.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Bring up the Bodies and would recommend them to anyone.
