My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A huge insight into real life India, which is shocking and horrific to the western reader. It shows a nation so different in thinking and behaviour to mine, however there are many other countries around the world where life of the people, especially the poor is very hard. It’s not nice to read about the suffering, we need our eyes opened to issues like those raised in this book. This was the Man Booker prize winner in 2008.

Hilary Mantel has just won this years Man Booker prize with her book “Bring Up The Bodies” with its prize fund of £50000.

Hilary is also the 1st British woman to win the Man Booker prize twice! She last won it in 2009 with her book “Wolf Hall”.

“Bring Up the Bodies” is about the downfall of Anne Boleyn seen through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell who was Henry VIII’s Chief Minister.

The BBC is planning to adapt both of Hilary’s books into 6 part dramas.

Congratulations Hilary!
