Phenomenal. One of the best books I've ever read, one that will have me desperately seeking to recreate the feeling of reading it.

The prose is just so beautiful, so sparse yet effective. The character of Cromwell is drawn so subtly as to both dominate the narrative while simultaneously disappearing. It's so fitting, considering his "behind the scenes" maneuvering that caused him to rise so high.

What I love about the character of Cromwell (as opposed to the actual person--I don't know nor do I care how accurately HM presents him) is he's so likable. He's bootstrapped his way from a rough childhood with an abusive father to what could seem to be an eternal hunt for that father figure. Instead, while mindful of those who were important to his development (both negatively and positively), he is his own man, recognizing his flaws and acting in ways that show total control over his sense of self and who he wants to be to those that really matter.

What slowly dawned on me reading this is that Wolf Hall is a revenge story, and one that unfolds so subtly it would be easy to miss. Yet Cromwell, instead of paying dearly for his loyalty to the out-of-favor Wolsey, sees himself rise above (both in honor and position) all those who would have as soon as hanged him.

There is so much that could be said about this novel, but I'm still chewing over it. It will be most definitely hard to top. Recommended. Highly. ( )

Ok I can't take it any more. This book is terrible. I can't believe this pretentious woman keeps winning prestigious awards. It's a good story which is let down by terrible writing. I threw this one against the wall once, and have tried to give it a second chance. Mistake. It still sucks. I have to agree with all the other reviewers who can't keep track of who she's referring to when all she ever says is "he". If Cromwell is having a conversation with one or, god forbid, more than one other "he" you might as well kill yourself. You'll never figure out who said what. This pathetic course of events is made even worse by her seemingly random use of quotation marks. Occasionally (I'm guessing her editor must've stepped in) she will write "He, Cromwell,...". For crying out loud, why doesn't she just say "Cromwell"??? I'm told the sequel manages to avoid this problem, so I wanted to see if I could hack my way through this jungle of confusion to see how the story goes, but it's just not worth it. Life's too short.

The Antidote For 'A Man For All Seasons'

Did you read (were you forced to read) [b:A Man for All Seasons|403098|A Man for All Seasons|Robert Bolt|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1403168082l/403098._SY75_.jpg|1358325] at school? Or worse, did your theater group put on the play? Did you roll your eyes at More's self-righteous tone as he awaited execution? Can't see why he didn't just sign on to King Henry's marriage to Anne Boleyn and be done with it? Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall is the book for you!

More than just a retelling of the Anne Boleyn controversy with different emphasis, Wolf Hall is a full-throated rehabilitation of Thomas Cromwell, complete with scenes in which he lovingly interacts with pets Bella (dog) and Marlinspike (cat), takes in and sees to the advancement of orphans, shows loyalty even in the face of extreme adversity to his first boss, Cardinal Wolsey (until Wolsey dies on the way to the Tower, that is), and shows pangs of guilt as he takes up with his (married) sister-in-law after the death of his wife. You soon think to yourself, "I'd sure rather have a pint of ale with this guy than old Thomas More!"

I'm no authority on Tudor England, but I assume Hilary Mantel has all the events of Cromwell's career correct, even if some of the scene details are added. So, looking at . . .Seasons and Wolf Hall side-by-side was an interesting experiment in understanding how perceptions of the currents of history are manipulated by the way the facts are laid out.

But put all of this aside: Wolf Hall is one heck of a good, fun read! Previous reviews of the book had convinced me that it would be a bit slow-going but worth the effort. In fact, though, it was a page-turner and a delight to read. I'm looking forward to exploring more titles from Ms. Mantel.

Highly recommended! ( )

historical fiction (the court intrigue surrounding Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, as told from the perspective of the fallen Cardinal's lawyer-friend).
This was ok, but hard for me to keep track of all the characters, and even who is talking at the moment, and who they are talking about. It would probably be riveting for fans of the Tudors. I stopped on p. 232, less than halfway through my edition of the book. ( )
  reader1009 | Jul 3, 2021 |
Informative, incredibly detailed, poetically written, and dull dull dull. I wasn't especially familiar with the intricacies of the Tudor court or Thomas Cromwell's life, so I was expecting more surprises and twists than this very solidly factually-based narrative provided. ( )

Hilary Mantel sets a new standard for historical fiction with her latest novel Wolf Hall, a riveting portrait of Thomas Cromwell, chief advisor to King Henry VIII and a significant political figure in Tudor England. Mantel’s crystalline style, piercing eye and interest in, shall we say, the darker side of human nature, together with a real respect for historical accuracy, make this novel an engrossing, enveloping read.

A sequel is plainly in view, as we are given glimpses of the rival daughters who plague the ever-more-gross monarch’s hectic search for male issue. The ginger-haired baby Elizabeth is mainly a squalling infant in the period of the narrative, which chiefly covers the years 1527–35, but in the figure of her sibling Mary, one is given a chilling prefiguration of the coming time when the bonfires of English heretics will really start to blaze in earnest. Mantel is herself of Catholic background and education, and evidently not sorry to be shot of it (as she might herself phrase the matter), so it is generous of her to show the many pettinesses and cruelties with which the future “Bloody Mary” was visited by the callous statecraft and churchmanship of her father’s court. Cromwell is shown trying only to mitigate, not relieve, her plight. And Mary’s icy religiosity he can forgive, but not More’s. Anyone who has been bamboozled by the saccharine propaganda of A Man for All Seasons should read Mantel’s rendering of the confrontation between More and his interlocutors about the Act of Succession, deposing the pope as the supreme head of the Church in England.
 
Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall is a startling achievement, a brilliant historical novel focused on the rise to power of a figure exceedingly unlikely, on the face of things, to arouse any sympathy at all.
 
Thomas Cromwell remains a controversial and mysterious figure. Mantel has filled in the blanks plausibly, brilliantly. “Wolf Hall” has epic scale but lyric texture. Its 500-plus pages turn quickly, winged and falconlike... [It] is both spellbinding and believable.

'There are three kinds of scenes, one called the tragic, second the comic, third the satyric. Their decorations are different and unlike each other in scheme. Tragic scenes are delineated with columns, pediments, statues and other objects suited to kings; comic scenes exhibit private dwellings, with balconies and views representing rows of windows, after the manner of ordinary dwellings; satyric scenes are decorated with trees, caverns, mountains and other rustic objects delineated in landscape style.'

Vitruvius, De Architectura, on the theatre, c. 27 B.C.

"So now get up."

Felled, dazed, silent, he has fallen; knocked full length on the cobbles of the yard. His head turns sideways; his eyes are turned towards the gate, as if someone might arrive to help him out. One blow, properly placed, could kill him now.

The Cardinal, a Bachelor of Arts at fifteen, a Bachelor of Theology by his mid-twenties, is learned in the law but does not like its delays; he cannot quite accept that real property cannot be changed into money, with the same speed and ease with which he changes a wafer into the body of Christ.
"You're sweeter to look at than the cardinal", he says. - "That's the smallest compliment a woman ever received."
It is surprising how international is the language of old men, swapping tips on salves for aches, commiserating with petty wretchedness and discussing the whims and demands of their wives.
"Tell us, Master Cromwell, you've been abroad. Are they particularly an ungrateful nation? It seems to me that they like change for the sake of it?" - "I don't think it's the English. I think it's just people. They always hope there may be something better."
Christ, he thinks, by my age I ought to know. You don't get on by being original. You don't get on by being bright. You don't get on by being strong. You get on by being a subtle crook; somehow he thinks that's what Norris is, and he feels an irrational dislike taking root, and he tries to dismiss it, because he prefers his dislikes rational.
