Wolf Hall

Wolf Hall - Hilary Mantel Though I honestly believe this could have been a bit shorter, as a Tudor/Stuart junkie this was a fun and interesting read. The faintly post-modern style of writing brought Henry VIII's court into the 21st century without seeming anachronistic. I thought the last line and title of the book were deliciously witty and clever - subtly revealing that before Henry or even the politically astute Cromwell were fully aware, Anne Boleyn's fate was already in the making...and those of Miss Seymour and numbers 4, 5 and 6!
