Wolf Hall Review ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB S and marry Anne Boleyn The pope and most of Europe opposes him Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell a wholly original man a charmer and a bully both idealist and opportunist astute. The fate of peoples is made like this two men in small rooms Forget the coronations the conclaves of cardinals the pomp and processions This is how the world changes a counter pushed across a table a pen stroke that alters the force of a phrase a woman s sigh as she passes and leaves on the air a trail of orange flower or rose water her hand pulling close the bed curtain the discrete sigh of flesh against flesh Uneasy lies the head that wears the crownbut really crown wearers seem to have little difficulty with fabrication Do they mean lie as in lying down I mean I would take it off before going to bed It might get pretty uncomfortable trying to sleep with that thing still on Wouldn t it be accurate to say uneasy sits the head that wears the crown although that creates in my tiny mind an image of Mister Potato head with legs and feet You know you want to see that so go ahead I ll wait view spoilerWell I could not find one with legs but you get the picture His and Hers hide spoiler

Wolf Hall Review ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB In reading people and implacable in his ambition But Henry is volatile one day tender one day murderous Cromwell helps him break the opposition but what will be the price of his trium. I treat this novel as a ualified failure of an experiment ualified since I am open to the possibility that the failure was mine and I sincerely wish that Mantel does not win the Booker this year I just cannot bring myself to spend any time with her lifeless narratorMore than anything else Wolf Hall seemed to me to be a literary experiment on how closely a woman can get into a man s mind and as far as I am concerned a ualified failure I could never truly feel that the narration was being executed by a male voice it was as if a woman narrator residing inside a captive male character was telling the story and every time a he or his comes along it resulted in a string of confused stumblings over adjectives before I remembered again many times that it is of himself that the narrator is talking about Eventually I came to understand the reason for this jarring feeling it was not because I was not reading thoroughly enough it was because I couldn t think of the narrator as a he it just didn t cut it especially when heshe informed me with wonder of how men embrace other menI wish Mary Boleyn had been the narrator she was the only real person in this narrative peopled by artificial characters only she had an authentic voice to me and I can t help but feel that she was the character that Mantel most identified with the novel came alive and took such vibrancy every time Mary entered the narrator s field of vision like a deprived woman lighting up at the sight of a beautiful mirror to finally examine herselfAs I said I am open to the fact that my bad experience was due to a failure of imagination on my part so I hope fans of this book will take pity on my deprived pleasure and be gentle in their recriminationsCome to think of it I really cannot think of any book I have read in which a novelist tries to get so intimate with the mind of a narrator of the opposite sex So maybe my problem was not a failure of imagination but a poverty of literary experience as I haven t encountered such an effort before maybe I need to read some HardyI also believe that if there were less Thomas s in the story I could have still come out the better in this expedition So there

Wolf Hall Review ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster If the king dies without a male heir the country could be destroyed by civil war Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of twenty year. I just started Wolf Hall and I find the relentless use of he to be extremely irritating In the first several chapters there are dozens of instances where it is not clear who is speaking Every once in a while as if recognizing the problem she has created Mantel uses the phrase he Cromwell Why not just say CromwellUnless there is some good reason which I can t imagine this sort of obfuscation is just lazy writing which disrespects the reader May I re think that based on a comment by another reader It s not lazy writing It s very purposeful And very distracting later I just read some of the reviews There are actually uite a few readers who found the he business as disconcerting as I did and who expressed their displeasure in rather strong terms along with many star ratings However many others really liked the book as do many Goodreads readers so it must not bother them as it does me Another Goodreads reader suggested that the use of he all the time created a closer intimacy with Cromwell Perhaps but I see it differently If you want to create intimacy use the first person Then it is clear that everything is seen and felt by the single protagonist and the reader can share that character s viewpoint thoughts and feelings What Mantel has done is not to bring us close to Cromwell but to inject herself the author between the reader and the prime character She does this on practically every page and I find it jarring every time it happensBefore my final negative notes let me say that Mantel clearly has an exuisite command of the language Even in the few chapters I read her elegant choice of words often made me reflect and smile She can paint a picture when describing a character or a setting that is truly wonderful And when she chooses to do so she writes a vivid scene that has power and emotionSuch continuity of story however is the exception rather than the rule The constant switching of time and place often without the merest hint of transition made the reading much difficult than it had to be Just a word here or there would have made a huge differenceFinally the breezy style in which much of the book is written is entertaining as many have noted and I agree but it had the effect of making me wonder if Mantel was as true to the history as I think a historical fiction should be Of course the dialogue and many of the personal incidents are made up but does the author when portraying actual events present them accurately I think such concern for the truth is an obligation of an author when writing about historical characters and events Mantel left me unsureI think I ve had enough of Wolf Hall and perhaps other Goodreads readers have had enough of my criticism of what is surely a popular book I don t usually write negative opinions but this book just seemed to drag them out of me I hope I have not offended anyone
