"Wolf Hall is terrific!" -

Wolf Hall is a very interesting read. It tells the story from the viewpoint of Thomas Cromwell and you get a sympathetic portrait of a man of his time who came from humble beginnings to being a lawyer and the most powerful advisor to Henry VIII. It portrays Cromwell as a family man with a job to do and Thomas Moore as a ruthless fanatic. Beyond Black is also very good. This is humorous and very black. It tells the story of a medium, her assistant and her wierd spiritual guides.A Place of Safety I did not enjoy at all. I just couldn't get into the story or connect with the characters as I could with the other two. This set is worth it for Wolf Hall alone and Beyond Black is a bonus.

"Black Hall.." -

I'd already read Wolf Hall in hardback, and was deeply impressed with Ms. Mantel's writing. Beyond Black tells of a travelling psychic and her companion. In places it's very dark, but also spookily comic. A Place of Greater Safety is an earlier publication; it relates a story centred around the French Revolution, and the Terror that followed. Wolf Hall I gave to a friend, who thoroughly enjoyed it. Buy if you want an intelligent, well-crafted read.

"Wolf Hall rocks!" -

I read Wolf Hall before Christmas and just could not put it down. It was an utterly riveting read. I'm no literary critic but I loved the way he described people and how you got to know Cromwell. I'm buying this set hoping that the others are as good and I'll be giving Wolf Hall as a pressie for a lucky friend...
