Book review:

The Mirror & the Light by Hilary Mantel this book wasn't extraordinary but i think because i feel the judges wanted to move on with new names but don't let that dissuade you because the mirror and the light is breathtaking in its brilliance and its originality so let's quickly surmise where we are 

so if you don't know what happened to thomas cromwell um apologies for this but this isn't a particular um i'm not really blowing the ending for you so thomas cromwell is the chief advisor to henry viii 

At the end of bring up the bodies and berlin the woman that he had accompanied um and machinated to become the second wife of henry viii has just been executed in this trilogy we're therefore left with thomas cromwell

An upset king and a need to find a third bride and an heir to the throne for those who um perhaps are not that familiar with thomas cromwell or british history what's so extraordinary about these books the three of them is that hillary mantell has given us a character a three-dimensional 

Character that invokes sympathy thomas cromwell is was routinely acknowledged as a bit of a criminal a bit of an eminence grease a bit of an arch manipulator he was seen as the force behind the throne and what hillary mantell wanted to do was bring us

A lead character a protagonist that evoked sympathy but also revoked horror this is of course a man who grew up as a boy in immense poverty in putney the son of a blacksmith who rose to the highest power and um accumulated great wealth under henry viii before 

He too fell foul of the king and ended up executed in the tower of london in 1540. that's where the book's gonna end by the way but despite the fact that we know the ending what the greatest achievement of this book is actually there are two greatest achievements the first is that there is suspense and tension 

In this book despite the fact that we all know that the execution of um amberlynn is going to lead to thomas cromwell's fall so he had the rise in wolf hall and bring up the bodies this book is about thomas cromwell's fall 

This is not a straight line there is so much tension and suspension as the um as the court starts to work against thomas cromwell and then there are sudden shoots of opportunity you feel that the king and thomas cromwell are still seeing eye to eye thomas cromwell never seems to lose the support of the king 

So you sort of think well how is he going to end up in the tower because they still seem so close the king and his chief adviser and then you sort of see the saw the machinations the power the sort of conversations in the shadows of the royal court 

How is thomas cromwell going to outmaneuver them again it's all a bit of a chess game and that really is that you can get so much suspension for let's be frank it's a pretty chunky book is amazing the second achievement of 

This book is that it is totally unexpected uh bringing up the bodies was a very uh tightly woven plot nuanced uh you could feel a bit of a thriller going on you know how how's the king going to get rid of Kathryn.
