The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 31: Wolf Hall

Hilary Mantel’s award-winning historic novel Wolf Hall is a cracking good book; having an interest in English history, I found it entirely engaging and I may have to finish out the rest of series this year. The story is set in the time of King Henry VIII’s court as told from the point of view of Thomas Cromwell. Though certainly fictional in the minute details, thoughts and personal life of Crowell, Mantel must have done a great deal of research to pull his story from historic documentation and she makes this strong, vital, intelligent character jump right off the page. Well done!
