I enjoyed this 2nd book about Thomas Cromwell more than the first book as the author's writing of dialogue was clearer. Hilary Mantel deserved the Booker Prize for this one. She is able to transport you into the court of Henry the 8th and she knows how to flesh out her characters. The reader was fine. Highly recommended. I am looking forward to the final book in this trilogy.
The story was perfect for an audiobook as it was recounted in the first person by a wonderful actor. As Ebenezer describes his life in Guersey the characters spring to life. I knew nothing about Guersey before listening to this book and loved learning about Ebenezer's community and the island's history.
