    Anyone read any of her stuff?

    I read Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies on the back of a friend nagging me to give them a go.

    If you like historical novel please do yourself a favour and pick up a copy of Wolf Hall. I had written it off as reading for middle class Guardian types, and I was totally blown away.

    Religion:
    None - agnostic with strong irreligious tendencies.
    I haven't read any of her books, but I did see the BBC series (based on Wolf Hall and the later book), and I thought that was very good - great cast too. Not my usual reading but I might add them to my list. :oops:

    I saw that - it was very good.

    I was in the same boat.
