We haven't read this yet, but it's predecessors Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies (the first two books in Mantel's Cromwell Trilogy) were some of the best books we ever read. If you're not into history, it will blow your socks off. And if you do love historical fiction already, this is going to smash your life into a thousand hundred trillion impressive smithereens of satisfaction and deep content and enthusiasm and pride in the english language that it can be so haunting, so cold and chilling and yet bone crunchingly tender and deeply moving and powerful. Sweet baby jesus Mantel is SO GOOD.
