Wolf Hall: A Novel

Wolf Hall (Thomas Cromwell, #1) - Hilary Mantel, Simon Slater The writing in this book is very vivid, and it was, as something I read said, like eavesdropping on conversations among various characters in Henry VIII's England, but I didn't feel that there was an overarching unification to the plot, maybe because I listened to it over several weeks. It definitely provides a different perspective on two of Henry's "Thomases," Cromwell and More, making Cromwell, as the focus, much more sympathetic, though not perfect by any means, and More a sarcastic, arrogant man with a touch of the sadist.

I would give it 3-1/2 stars but since the site won't let me, I'm rounding up to 4.
