Book Description: Picador, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Darkly magnificent.Mantel animates history with a political and psychological acuity equal to Tolstoy's."--- The Washington Post "Beautifully constructed.The wonder of Mantel's retelling is that she makes these events fresh and terrifying all over again.Sublime."---Janet Maslin, The New York Times "Marvelous, intoxicating.Read Bring Up the Bodies for its chilling character profile, its period details on jousting and Tudor kitchens, its congregation of the seven deadly sins.Nobody should skip a heady word of Mantel's planned trilogy."--- The Cleveland Plain Dealer "Mantel has the maddeningly unteachable gift of being interesting.All is alive, silvery, alert, rapid with insight."---James Wood, The New Yorker "Meticulously crafted.Superb.Highly entertaining.Brilliant."--- Slate "Fantastic.A more propulsive reading experience than rivals like Philippa Gregory's hugely popular novel The Other Boleyn Girl ."--- The Wall Street Journal "There is no one else writing with Mantel's verve and control, her talent for richly wrought story, crisp pace, and direct prose."--- The Miami Herald "Mantel writes the kind of sentences you want to live in. Bring Up the Bodies isn't just her boldest book, it's also her best."---Michael Schaub, NPR "[ Bring Up the Bodies ] is astringent and purifying, stripping away the cobwebs and varnish of history, the antique formulations and brocaded sentimentality of costume drama novels, so that the English past comes to seem like something vivid , strange and brand new." The New York Times Book Review "Hilary Mantel made waves in 2009 with her Man Booker Prize-winning page-turner, Wolf Hall .The second in her planned trilogy, Bring Up the Bodies stalks Anne Boleyn and the soap-opera worthy machinations of Cromwell and his evil allies to bring down the powerful wife of the king. Who knew history could be so sexy?" Vanity Fair "What's being called the Wolf Hall Trilogy is a remarkable work in progress, a series that makes the past feel immediate andthis is the best partunpredictable. Even if you know the history, you'll find yourself racing through these pages to find out what happens next." People "After pulling off this literary feat twice, you realize the smartest person in the room isn't Cromwell after allit's Mantel." The Huffington Post "Fans of Wolf Hall will relish this book, but Bring Up the Bodies also stands alone.Her characters are real and vivid people who bring to life the clash of ideals that gripped England at the time. She makes the past present and vital." The Economist " Bring Up the Bodies stands magnificently on its own.such is [Mantel's] skill" LA Times "You won't be able to tear your eyes away." The Seattle Times "In Mantel's hands, Cromwell's cunning, morally complicated orchestration of that historic slice through the royal neck is as exciting as any thriller." Entertainment Weekly "With wit, daring style, and a staggering breadth of historical knowledge, Mantel breathes new life into reclaimed territory." Bookslut.
