This review is from: Wolf Hall (Thomas Cromwell Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
The first part of an historical trilogy that proves unquestionably that history is not dead. Hilary Mantel breathes essential life into names that form part of our national heritage but whose characters are not intimately known. Combining archives and her own inventive imagination, Hilary Mantel pulls the reader along with her, through the filthy streets of sixteenth century London and the leafy deer-filled parks of neighbouring counties, where always there is danger, intrigue and treachery. I was unable to put this book down and, having read it, I immediately bought the follow-up title, Bring Up The Bodies. Absolutely excellent reads.
