    Story
    (943)

    Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bring Up the Bodies to be better than the print version?

    This was a great way to experience a great book. I read Wolf Hall in the print edition and enjoyed it, but this was a much more engrossing experience.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Simon Vance's reading was excellent. It was always intelligible; there was differentiation between characters in his reading voice, but not in an annoying artifical way.


    If you could take any character from Bring Up the Bodies out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The story is told from the point of view of Thomas Cromwell, and a very complex and complicated man emerges from the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the time spent, whether in print or via audio book. I used the voice sync feature for the first time on this book; listening to audio 80% of the time, but occasionally switching to the e-book. That is a very nice and useful technology if you want to pay the extra cost (I was trying a free demo.)
