I was hoping for a lot more. It was boring, all the way through. Darn. I really liked Wolf Hall. I found the 'reviews' on the back of the cover almost hard to believe after reading it. It was too much inside just one head so to speak--making all the surrounding characters seem blah. Very blah.

I read a lot, but I just could not get into this one, I tried and tried and finally I gave up and ready to pass it on to someone who can get into it. I found the story to be boring and having to read parts over to understand what was going on.

Ms Mantel conveys to the reader an impression of how thoroughly detestable and self serving everyone at Court was during the reign of Henry VIII (otherwise known as the wife du jour years of sixteenth century British history).
First and foremost among the detestable and self serving individuals was 'good king Hal' himself.
I must admit a to a sneaking fondness for Cromwell but a similar case could be made for many of the victims of Henry's reign by a sympathetic biographer.
Guess the jury's still out, so read and reach your own conclusions.
