    By 1535 Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith's son, is far from his humble origins. Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes have risen with those of Anne Boleyn, Henry’s second wife, for whose sake Henry has broken with Rome and created his own church. In Bring Up the Bodies, Hilary Mantel explores one of the most mystifying and frightening episodes in English history: the destruction of Anne Boleyn.

    If you could sum up Bring Up the Bodies in three words, what would they be?

    Exquisite Historical Novel


    Who was the most memorable character of Bring Up the Bodies and why?

    Cromwell is a deep, rich and complex character, beautifully scripted by Mantle


    Any additional comments?

    I read Wolf Hall but listened to Bring up the bodies. Much to my surprise, I preferred the listening ! The 'voices' attached to the characters seemed more colourful than those I had created in my own head, and the delightful use of the .......pause.....to give weight to Cromwell's real meaning was a great touch. Was totally caught up in the intrigue of Henry VIII court.
