Wolf Hall | Hilary Mantel
post image

#SoaringScores #EntryIntoTheGreatHall #BookishConfession I‘ve never read Hilary Mantel🙈where should I start?!!! Are they all #chunksters ?!?! #PageCountPhobia

SamAnne I‘m wondering too! Recently picked up a couple of her books used. I‘m thinking of starting with Wolf Hall. Other suggestions? (edited) 1mo
merelybookish I've only read Wolf Hall. I liked it. It's historical fiction with a slant 1mo
BarbaraBB I liked Wolf Hall too. Aftereards I started its sequel, Bring up the Bodies, but I couldn‘t get into that one. I‘ll try again, one day.... 😉 1mo

Kalalalatja I have read Wolf Hall, and I wasn‘t impressed 😅 and it is a bit chunky 1mo
CarolynM I loved Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. I'm not looking forward to the last one in the trilogy though. That's the problem with fictionalised history - you know where it's going. 1mo
Centique I loved them too but then I love this period of history and I‘m hungry to get a good feel for that world. It will be either love or hate for you I think. So #borrowdontbuy 1mo
Cinfhen Thanks for all the feedback @merelybookish @BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja @Centique I think the #BorrowNotBuy is a good idea 💡 and I hear ya @CarolynM although I‘m fuzzy with all my world history 🤪 1mo
Cinfhen @SamAnne seems like Wolf Hall is a good place to start!!! 1mo
Hooked_on_books I like audio for chunksters, so maybe that‘s a way to go. 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ll look into that option @Hooked_on_books Good suggestion 😌 1mo
jillrhudy The third book in the trilogy is coming out March 3 with a 300,000 first printing from Henry Holt & Co. 1mo
RealBooks4ever Loved Wolf Hall. It's not a tough read, never mind the page count. 💜 1mo
CrowCAH I enjoyed the PBS miniseries based on this book! 1mo
TrishB Love these ❤️ I can‘t wait for the 3rd! 1mo
vivastory I LOVED the following (& it's not a chunkster) 1mo
Reviewsbylola You shouldn‘t start. 😆 1mo
Reviewsbylola Granted, I‘ve only read the first 150 pages of WH but never again!! 1mo
Reviewsbylola I do think Mantel is very talented, but I don‘t have the energy or headspace that her books require. (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen Hahaha @Reviewsbylola I think I may be in the same boat as you!!! Head space is KEY these days!!! 1mo
BkClubCare I loved the style of Wolf Hall - history truly as it lives and breathes. #SuperRooster 1mo
Cinfhen I think I‘m gonna finally give this book a try @BkClubCare 1mo
BkClubCare @Cinfhen - the audiobook was pretty good. I think it added to the drama and narrator made it easy to discern characters. 1mo
Cinfhen I‘m always looking for audio suggestions so that‘s really good to know. Thanks 😊 4w
