Book 29 – Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel


Well that was a long break, thanks to a busy new job, plus a nasty dose of reader’s block. I’m hoping to get back to some substantial reading over Christmas.

I had Bring Up the Bodies in my sights as soon as I’d finished Wolf Hall a couple of years ago. It continues with the career of Thomas Cromwell, dealing particularly with the downfall of Anne Boleyn. And it was just as well written and dramatic, though possibly, with Cromwell’s personality and the sheer horridness of nearly everyone already well established, less of a surprise. Would definitely recommend.
