    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.

    What did you love best about Bring Up the Bodies?

    Removed me from the 21st century and dumped me in the 16th using brilliant characterisation and imagery.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bring Up the Bodies?

    Enthralling all the way through


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Insightful exploration all the way though.


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

    Major and minor characters are both fascinating.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved "Wolf Hall" but this sequel is even more enthralling. Dreaded ending the experience. Once finished, I played it all over again. Hilary Mantel's talent is frightening. The narrator, Simon Vance, absolutely nails it. His Henry VIII makes me feel I know him ........which is a worry.
