A good sequel

If you read Wolf Hall, you will find this a fast and fun read, covering less than one year in the lives of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Thomas Cromwell. (Do be sure to read Wolf Hall before starting this book.)

Now waiting for Mantel's third and final Cromwell book, to be called The Mirror And The Light. The end of Bring Up the Bodies sets the stage most effectively for what we know will happen next.
