MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Wolf Hall:

'Dizzyingly, dazzlingly good . . . Hugely exciting, packed full of power struggles and political machinations, but also delightfully poetic, vivid in image and phrase. A rich and subtle wonder' Daily Mail

'Beautifully written and terrifying fiction. She makes that world so concrete you can smell the rain-drenched wool cloaks and feel the sharp fibres of rushes underfoot. It's a world of marvels' Daily Telegraph

'As soon as I opened this book I was gripped. I read it almost non-stop. When I did have to put it down, I was full of regret the story was over, a regret I still feel' The Times

Praise for Bring Up the Bodies:

'The greatest modern English prose writer writing today' Peter Stothard, Chairman of the 2012 Man Booker Prize

'In another league. This ongoing story of Henry VIII's right-hand man is the finest piece of historical fiction I have ever read . . . A staggering achievement' Sunday Telegraph

'Darkly magnificent . . . the finest work of historical fiction in contemporary literature' Washington Post

Praise for The Mirror and the Light:

'Hilary Mantel has written an epic of English history that does what the Aeneid did for the Romans and War and Peace for the Russians. We are lucky to have it.' Sunday Telegraph

'Very few writers manage not just to excavate the sedimented remains of the past, but bring them up again into the light and air so that they shine brightly once more before us. Hilary Mantel has done just that.' Simon Schama, Financial Times

'A masterpiece that will keep yielding its riches, changing as its readers change, going forward with us into the future' Guardian

“Fantastic”

Hilary Mantel’s story telling is superb. I could hear them speaking and smell the environment. The knots in my throat from tension to literally laughing out loud with Hilary’s razor wit - it was a glorious roller... More
