    National Book Critics Circle, Fiction, 2010

    Man Booker Prize, Fiction, 2009

    Tudor England. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is charged with securing his divorce. Into this atmosphere of distrust comes Thomas Cromwell - a man as ruthlessly ambitious in his wider politics as he is for himself. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "If the dance between king and mistress is expertly choreographed, it is Mantel's presentation of the common realm - the seething streets of Putney and Wimbledon, populated by drapers and boatmen - that gives this novel the force of revelation." ( The Guardian)

    "...as soon as I opened the 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. This is a wonderful and intelligently imagined retelling of a familiar tale from an unfamiliar angle - one that makes the drama unfolding nearly five centuries ago look new again, and shocking again, too. " ( The Times)

    "The reader, Simon Slater, skilfully adopts contrasting voices and the narrative has an immediacy close to a dramatisation... Provocative, rewarding listening." (The Times)

    great story, appalling reading

    The text gives a half imaginary insight into the last decade of Thomas Cromwell. A great read. The speaker is professional, but the persons are more caricatures than characters. For a short story this would be entertaining, yet here, some hours of listening it ends up being solely annoying.

    Einfach nur langweilig und nicht durchzuhalten.

    Ich habe es einfach nicht geschafft, dieses langweilige Hörbuch bis zum Ende zu hören. Nicht zu empfehlen.
