Staff Reviews


Most books about Henry VIII's court focus solely on the monarch or Anne Bolyen, but in this novel Mantel takes a different route, invoking the voice of royal adviser Thomas Cromwell. Born to humble beginnings, Cromwell's ambition, wit and uncanny ability to make money carry him to the Tudor court. There he is faced with the momentous tasks of annulling Henry's first marriage and reforming the Church of England. This book was not a quick read but at the end had me wishing it wasn't over!

“In Wolf Hall, Mantel offers a new view of the reign of Henry VIII: from inside the head of Thomas Cromwell, as he ponders ways to increase the size of Henry's exchequer and aid the king's efforts to get Anne Boleyn into his bed through the sanctity of marriage. Mantel exposes Cromwell's thoughts as he frets over his family, his friends, even his enemies. A brilliant novel that encapsulates the Tudor era in the lushest of evocative prose.”
