    Uhtred, Northumbrian born, raised a Viking and married to a Saxon, is a formidable warrior, and he, together with the thoughtful and pious Alfred, Alfred's family, and a few of Uhtred's companions, are apparently all that remain of the Wessex leadership after a disastrous truce. Uhtred still thinks of rejoining his Danish foster brother and the victorious Vikings, but he finds a growing respect for the stubborn leadership of Alfred.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Pale Horseman to be better than the print version?

    Yes, in this case I think the audiobook version worked better for me than the print version would have done. Usually I prefer the print version but all 6 of these audiobooks were excellent despite several different readers. Actually, my main complaint was the 2 of the series were abridged and this greatly diminished my enjoyment - it always does!

    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.

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

    No - I nearly always prefer the print version but there are many occasions when audio works best for me for one reason or another. Actually, well read audiobooks can have an edge because of the accents etc used by the reader. So, both are excellent!
