Requesting Help with a Review

Hi Everyone!

I am writing tonight to ask for some help. I have been trying to read Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel for about 2 weeks. I just can’t seem to get into it – and it’s not because I don’t like the book. I have only read a couple of sections, and liked them, but it is just not holding my attention enough for me to want to keep reading. I feel really badly, but I have other books that are catching my attention. So here is what I am going to do – I’m going to give it to someone who really wants to read it. If anyone is interested in receiving my review copy and writing a review of it please leave a comment below. I will leave it open until Wednesday, November 25th and then mail it on Friday. After you write the review, if you want to leave me the link to your blog, I will post the link here.
I really want this book to go to someone who wants to read and review it. That is what this prize winning book deserves. Thanks everyone.

Update: The person who will be receiving my copy of this book to review is virginiebarbeau. Thanks to those who offered to help me out! It is much appreciated.

  1. I would LOVE to review it. I was talking about this book even before it won the award ;p

  2. I have been through most of the audiobook version. Yes, it does take some getting used to, but I like the picture she presents of Cromwell in his setting--the household and the court. The Dukes of Norfolk and Suffolk are of course very snobbish and Thomas More is a bit of a pain, but the story as such is well-written. The use of the present tense makes it seem as though it's happening before your very eyes. There is this point in the book when Thomas Cranmer, travelling in Germany, writes to Cromwell to tell him he has a secret, which he begs him to keep. Cromwell has no idea what the secret is, until Anne Boleyn's coronation, when he meets Cranmer's wife and nearly has a fit.

  3. That's an awesome idea! I'd love to read and review this! This is my first time to your blog but won't be my last. I'm off to add you to my reader. And you're reading O, Juliet!! I'm so jealous! Can't wait to see what you think!


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
