- jaffareadstoo - Historical Fiction at its best...Bring up the Bodies is written in vivid detail from Thomas Cromwell's Machiavellian perspective, as with his legion of spies, he infiltrates the board rooms and bedrooms of those at the very epicentre of Tudor supremacy. Divided into two distinct parts, the story progresses from September 1535, through to summer 1536, and grows increasingly darker and more sinister as the story progresses. Even though Anne Boleyn's eventual demise is widely known, it is Mantel's unique angle on the construction of the case that creates such a vivid rendition of this story.
In many respects Bring up the Bodies is much lighter editorially than Wolf Hall, and yet the writing is just as demanding. However, occasionally, Mantel goes off tangent, only to pull you back with an amazing turn of phrase, or a sequence of events. I found myself going back and forth to re -read parts of the narrative, quite simply because her phrasing is so good, and also because I wanted to pick up on some hidden nuance that had previously gone unnoticed. Mantel has the uncanny ability to convey power, deception and intrigue in equal measure; her skill with words and her manipulation of the narrative is inspiring, and yet with quiet dignity, and meticulous research, she blends fact with fiction, and encourages the reader to watch as the accusations into Anne's alleged adultery descend into tragedy.
Hilary Mantel has undoubtedly created a worthy sequel in Bring up the Bodies. The portrayal of Thomas Cromwell as a charismatic and brilliant Tudor celebrity works incredibly well, and as always the Tudor court is displayed as a scheming hotchpotch of rivalry, intrigue and sexual mischief.
I am now on countdown to the last book in the trilogy !
- mimimom - overall very happyI have been searching for a couple months for the "perfect" cleanse. I've never done one before so I wasn't sure what to look for. I very nearly bought one of the more expensive brands here on amazon, but then found this cleanse at Trader Joes and decided to give it a try since it was only 10 bucks. I decided to take half the dosage. I took 3 pills in the morning and 3 at night, so 6 per day. I thought 12 per day, as recommended, seemed a little extreme to start with. I took the first 3 on a sat night and within a 1/2 hour I had to "go." Same thing happened Sunday morning, but the rest of Sunday was uneventful. Monday however, included at leat 6 trips to the bathroom. For the next 5 or 6 days I was "going" between 3-5 times every day, and as disgusting as this sounds, what was coming out actually looked old, like it had been in there for quite a while. I was so thankful to have it out and no longer in there. By the time I finished the 10 day treatment, I was amazed at the results. I felt so much cleaner and lighter. I no longer had that heavy, bloated feeling I've had for as long as I can remember. I am not overweight and have always been considered "skinny," but I always feel bloated. I don't think I ever remember a time my stomach was flat. It is now!!! A few people even asked if I had lost weight. I am definitely doing another cleanse before summer and bikini season starts :) I highly recommend this!
- Baltimore Bibliophile "Reading Local Baltimor... - Excellent, well-priced stroller.I have no access to a good sample of strollers where I live and was going to buy a Maclaren because it's what I had for my first nine years ago, until I read the reviews for the Inglesina Trip Stroller. This is a great, well-priced stroller. It's easy to use, easy-to -assemble the very few bits that need assembly, low weight, full-coverage canopy, easy fold, easy to adjust straps, great color (we have purple). We're tall (5'7" and 6'3") and the handles are nice and high. Highly, highly recommended. Great price.
- Brandy Gourdin "Brandy1921" - No Question, GET THIS. Yesterday.I am a big reader, and this is the first book, series actually, that I have read multiple times. I wouldn't consider E.L. James to be the best writer in the world (repiticious sentences and at times and too many "Oh baby's" for my taste), but it definitely gets the job done and is worth your time FOR SURE. Paints a very engrossing, romantic picture.
