Wolf Hall

In the ruthless arena of King Henry VIII's court, only one man, Thomas Cromwell, dares to gamble his life to win the king's favor and ascend to the heights of political power. In inimitable style, Mantel presents a picture of a half-made society on the cusp of change, where individuals fight or embrace their fate with passion and courage.

Gewöhnungsbedürftig und Atemberaubend! In Sprache und Stil für einen historischen Roman sehr ungewöhnliches Kaleidoskop der Tudor Gesellschaft. Unbedingt darauf einlassen.

Lend me your hand and we conquer them all!

In inimitable style, Mantel presents a picture of a half-made society on the cusp of change, where individuals fight or embrace their fate with passion and courage. REVIEW: I would never have picked up this book, if it wasn´t for Marcus Mumford! And I would have definitely missed out one of the most amazing books I have ever read. It is sometimes a challenging read when it comes to cheer amount of individuals that appear, sometimes it is hard to follow as a lot of people are called Henry and Thomas but that just a minor thing, compared to the amazing writing style! I absolutely adored the book from the start and I think it is unique and not the cliché kind of historical book that you can buy around every corner! Give it a try you won´t be disappointed!

"The good old Duchess of Windsor was once quoted as "I only read slim novels and fat biographies", which to me always sounded rather sensible advice. However, a raving review of "Wolf Hall" (in an actual newspaper) made me curious. Tudors have lately been done to death with - literally - yet I had never come across this Thomas Cromwell (great uncle of that annoying Oliver Cromwell), whose life apparently merited the better of 600 pages. The author did not ring a bell either. A few pages in, I was captivated, a further more pages down I decided to read on until page 290 (work the next day proved a bit of a hassle) and only within the last 50 pages it occurred to me that it would be very hard indeed to find another novel as brilliant, as excellent, as genial as "Wolf Hall". Do read "Wolf Hall" if you don’t mind a novel with a bit of history in it. After all, money, power, sex and a few chopped-off heads don't just go out of fashion after a couple of centuries. And if you don’t mind a book the size of a Tudor brick. ”Wolf Hall” is not for you, however, if you are a banker, lawyer or a politician with, let’s say, “pecuniary issues”. I did mention the chopped-off heads...."
