Pam Do I need to read Wolf Hall first? I didn't realize this was a sequel and I just won it! No need for forgiveness : )

Iset If I had won it, I would have read Wolf Hall first, yes.

Belinda I am so pleased you mentioned the use of He said, he Cromwell... as it seemed a bit too contrived and clunky for me at times.


message 4: by Lesley (new)

Lesley Was sorry that she felt she had to use 'He Cromwell' in this book, thought 'he' worked so well in 'Wolf Hall'.

Nina Chambers No kidding about the subject pronoun HE! I think Ms Mantel was in want of a good editor! Unnecessarily oblique & pronoun excess! I've spent the first 40 pages rereading way too many passages to elicit the correct HE to which she refers!

Lesley Liked the use of 'he' in WH, would have preferred that to continue. Read that too many people found it difficult.
