it was amazing

Almost a year has passed since I started reading this, pausing either to prioritize other books for the book club or to simply take a breather from the heavy material, and I have to say that it has been worth my while, and more. It is amazing how Hilary Mantel has taken what’s barely written in history books about Thomas Cromwell, artfully filled in the blanks, and created this fictionalized account of his humble beginnings, tumultuous background, slow rise to fame, and consequent downfall. Also, I like self-made, utterly loyal, and smart men like Cromwell.
