Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2012

Winner of Costa Book of the Year 2012

Shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2013

With this historic win for `Bring Up the Bodies', Hilary Mantel becomes the first British author and the first woman to be awarded two Man Booker Prizes (her first was for `Wolf Hall' in 2009).

By 1535 Thomas Cromwell is Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes having risen with those of Anne Boleyn, the king's new wife. But Anne has failed to give the king an heir, and Cromwell watches as Henry falls for plain Jane Seymour. Cromwell must find a solution that will satisfy Henry, safeguard the nation and secure his own career. But neither minister nor king will emerge unscathed from the bloody theatre of Anne's final days.

An astounding literary accomplishment, Bring Up the Bodies is the story of this most terrifying moment of history, by one of our greatest living novelists.

“A great book, but a slower pace to Wolf Hall, I feel.”

A great book, but a slower pace to Wolf Hall, I feel.
A very good book, weaving in and out of the intrigue and plots! Very good but strangely to me, Cromwell felt rather more peripheral or witness to the events he... More

“Bring Up the Bodies”

Found the writing style to be a bit odd and at times it was difficult to be sure who was speaking. A bit boring for the first half but picks up in the second and is worth the read if you can adjust to the style.
