Wolf Hall, Bring up the Bodies

Wolf Hallbring up the bodiesHilary Mantel’s books, Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies are amazingly detailed and intricate books. Although both very long books, I read them very quickly. Knowing the Tudor story made it easy for me to read the books in some ways but I didn’t have any prior knowledge of Thomas Cromwell and his part in the Tudor story. Mantel doesn’t tell the love story, she tells the politics of the story. I loved them. Of course, in the end Anne is beheaded and Henry gets to marry Jane Seymour. I await the third book of the trilogy with much interest.
