I have finally gotten back to reading "Wolf hall" as other things got in the way at my first attempt.
Still I am enjoying Hillary?s use of language so much and her sense of humour. She keeps a high standard and is able to keep to that level most of the time. I have only come across a few bits which was a bit confusing to read.
Last night I read these few lines. Its Thomas Cromwell talking to Anne Boleyn about how to boil a man alive as punishment.
" Anne?s face wears no expression at all. Even a man as literate as he can find nothing there to read. "How will they do it?"
Guess he doesn?t think much of her.
To me the book is filled with these small creative descriptions of the people and their relations, and you gotta smile each time they appear.
