I’ve tried to read this book twice and failed, so this time I turned to the audio book and succeeded. In this first book of her award-winning trilogy, Hillary Mantel gives us the rise of Thomas Cromwell, King Harry VIII’s fixer, from his miserable working class childhood, through his rise as Cardinal Wolsey’s lawyer, and finally to Henry’s court to legally “fix” it so he can get rid of the Spanish queen and marry Anne Boleyn.

Along the way there are plots among plots and the bodies pile up like cordwood. Cromwell is a totally despicable person, and yet you find yourself thinking, “Is he really any worse than anyone else.?”

This is a great portrait of a brutal age and a complicated man. ( )

Warning: Hilary Mantel is not Phillipa Gregory. Hey, I have consumed Gregory’s Tudor Era Historical-fiction with glee, but any reader expecting a cut-form historical novel will be disappointed by Wolf Hall.

Mantel expects a lot of her readers. Her prose is oblique, the dialogues are interwoven with the characters inner voices and memories, historical figures leap at the pages without any introduction to their background (yes, reading Phillipa Gregory first may help those of us without a history degree). Nothing, and I mean nothing, is given digested and rationalized by the author. Not even the title of this book, which in a first, superficial interpretation seems misleading, but alludes to so much more. Nevertheless, the world created (or re-created) by Mantel is lush with the conflicts of the time, where theology and politics, pregnancies and heresy, all interconnected in the realm of power.

Thomas Cromwell, whom the narrative follows, is portrait maybe in too positive of a light. Yet, he is made so human, his inner struggles laid so bare – even in the convoluted narration – that it feels impossible not to warm our readers’ heart to him. I cannot remember of another historical figure receiving such reverence by a fiction writer, as Hilary Mantel does to Cromwell in Wolf Hall. So, history buffs, literary fans, and psychology students, go for it. It is beautifully done.

OK so I know this book won a great many awards but it just wasn't the book for me. I found it very dry and tedious to get through. I did appreciate the other reviewers who stated that you have to understand that the "he" used throughout the book was almost entirely referring to Thomas Cromwell and I agree it does get annoying. I truly don't understand what the author's point of that was. In any case I'm glad I plowed through it but would definitely not read it again. ( )

I expected more from it, but maybe it's just that the the writing style isn't quite to my taste. Because other than that, it's definitely epic. ( )

Borrowed from neighbor Sheila during polar vortex. Such great writing but so frustrating with the pronun over-usage. I read it to learn but so high-context most of the time I had no idea what was going on. ( )

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.
