Bring Up the Bodies — Review

June 10, 2014

You guys know I love historical fiction and Hilary Mantel just does it so well.

I don’t even know what to say about Bring Up the Bodies beyond the obvious: read it.

It’s atmospheric and the characters have depth and even though you know the ultimate outcome (because, you know, history) you’re much more focused on what’s going on at that moment and the individual dilemmas and dramas of the characters.

It has its slow moments, but patience pays off.

This is the second book in a trilogy (the first book, Wolf Hall, is also awesome) and I can’t wait to read the conclusion. I’m impatient, so I wouldn’t blame you if you waited until all three books were out before you started reading.
