in the top ten
the title is very fitting for this book and for the times.
A solid book, nicely developed. Kept me interested.
Very well written, great story. The characters are well developed and believable.
The story picks up from where wolf hall ends, so it is worth reading both in sequence to enjoy the context.
However, by the end of the book I was ready for something lighter.
I would have liked the book to end with a final note on how life ended for Thomas Cromwell and his family but I guess that will likely be the next book.
Rich in detail and imagery, a good historical hit.
People who like more detailed explanations to their storyand prefer slower paced books than the average thriller might enjoy this book more than I did.
No, thrillers are usually really well crafted and with a good author you know you are in good hands. You know they will deliver a caliber of writing and a book that you can expect will satisfy.
Have not listened to this performers books before is one, but he was fine.
The book explained the story too far, well beyond the necessary, and this went on through the whole book. It was an effort to persevere. It also spelled out the obvious, often enough to get annoying. As a thriller, it should have been tight and clean in the writing and it wasn't.
I tried this author hoping to discover a new source of books in this genre, which is a favourite. before I try another book, I will look for reviews.
