"Tudors but from a different perspective."
My favorite period of history is the Tudors, but there in lies the problem because its been done to death as far as historical novels go. I tried to read Wolf Hall in book form but found it hard to focus so I downloaded it from audible and within half an hour I was lost in the story. When I heard it was going to become a trilogy I was so excited and bring up the bodies didn't disappoint. It continues where wolf hall left off and it's main character is still Thomas Cromwell. The book is well written and doesn't turn into murder mystery/bodice ripping drivel that most novels about Henry VIII and his court turn into lately.
"Fantastic can't fault it"
I loved this book! The narration was great and the story line kept me interested all the way through. The characters were well developed and had the right balance of good v's bad with out them becoming caricatures of themselves. Sometime the story was frustrating because I wanted the diabolical Hamlies and the Bishop to get their comeuppance, but this just added to the excitement of the tale. The only negative about this audiobook is that you'll be late for work because you'll dawdle just so you can hear a like bit more!!!!
