En mi búsqueda de nuevos autores de mi género predilecto, el de la novela histórica, le tenía muchas ganas a este libro, que forma parte de una trilogía. El argumento gira en torno a un momento apasionante de la historia de Inglaterra. En 1520, el rey Enrique VIII quiere divorciarse de su mujer, Catalina de Aragón, para casarse con Ana Bolena, pero el cardenal Wolsey, su principal asesor, no obtiene más que negativas de la iglesia católica.
Emerge la figura del hijo de un herrero, Thomas Cromwell, que, como segundo de Wolsey y más tarde como su sucesor se convierte en el eje central de la historia, de hecho, lo más destacable del libro es que en esta archiconocida historia, el protagonista es Cromwell y no Enrique VIII o las propias hermanas Bolena.
La lectura del libro es un poco compleja, justamente por ser contada en la figura omnisciente de Thomas Cromwell, y a veces he tendido a confundirme entre los personajes, pero como vienen todos explicados al principio del libro, tan fácil como recurrir a ellos. La grandeza del personaje te imbuye absolutamente en esos hechos que él maneja con total astucia, hasta convertirse en la figura más importante del propio rey.
Esta novela fue ganadora de muchos premios, entre ellos el Premio Booker de 2009. ( )

I tried.
I really, really tried.
Mantel's style is very unique, and her use of language is brilliant. The dialogue and narrative flows effortlessly and it's very easy to pound out 20-30 pages before you can blink.

But I couldn't enjoy myself, or follow the story in the least. I barely had any idea what was going on, why somebody was all of a sudden in the scene, who was talking to who. Some books I get a picture perfect image of what's going on - Wolf Hall is the exact opposite. I'm sure Tudor and English history buffs would absolutely love this, but I think I'm in over my head. I won't continue the trilogy at this point, Wolf Hall felt too much like homework I was too dumb to understand. ( )

Bit confusing in parts ( )

Oh my gosh I finished it! This was my mostly companion driving to and from the rec center to jog in the cold/dark season. Is the title a shaggy dog joke? I am not used to audio books and definitely felt the difference in attention and memory - I couldn't flip back to verify the date of the current chapter or look up a character name.

The book is expansive and feels like it offers us a way to step into Tudor England. Thomas Cromwell is envisioned as the best possible Machiavellian courtier, if there can be such a thing. He's loyal and scrupulous and has a shadowy past. He dotes on his children and his protogees and his little dogs, all named Bella. He served and loved the deposed Cardinal Woolsey and sticks by his prince, ol' Henry VIII.

I enjoyed being here. I may need to re-read it on paper in the future. ( )

Tried it for 3 nights but just not interested in trying to decipher who is "he" and British royalty. Can see why Royalist Brits might be fascinated by it though. ( )

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.

hard to read but enjoyable

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.
