A worthy winner of the Man Booker Prize. A worthy sequel to a Booker winner (Wolf Hall, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading two years ago). And the reason I'm now reading The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory, on my Kindle Fire. And the reason I also want to read The Wives of Henry VIII, by Antonia Fraser.
- In The New York Times: Charles McGrath on Bring Up the Bodies: Hilary Mantel, "the novelist who's always reinventing herself". And Christopher Benfey on Wolf Hall: "Both spellbinding and believable".
