    Hilary Mantel's 'Wolf Hall' was one of the best novels I've read in quite some time. Excellent historical fiction regarding Thomas Cromwell, the court of King Henry VIII, various historical figures, and much intrigue and nastiness. Best of all - it is part of a trilogy: Part two 'Bringin Up The Bodies' has just been released. Will be adding that to the pile.

    Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. The King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn story told from the point of view of Thomas Cromwell. It humanizes Cromwell and gives a different perspective of that fascinating time in English history.

Wolf Hall: A Novel. Nothing better than this has been written in the last few years. Not even close.

Bring Up the Bodies is Part 2 to Wolf Hall. Only 410 pages, yet still too wordy for me. Again, I stuck with it, but did not enjoy as much as Wolf Hall either.

NPR: I am in awe of Hilary Mantel. The scope and skill of her incredible Wolf Hall — which charted the rise of the brilliant Thomas Cromwell against the backdrop of Henry VIII's break with the pope — was staggering. When I learned she was writing a sequel, I couldn't help but worry: How could any author sustain that sort of sheer, daring genius for a second book? Easily, it turns out. Bring Up the Bodies is not only as wonderful as Wolf Hall, it may even exceed it.

This sequel to "Wolf Hall" was just released. Downloaded it to Kindle seconds after I found out!
