Pressestimmen

'This is a beautiful and profoundly human book, a dark mirror held up to our own world. And the fact that its conclusion takes place after the curtain has fallen only proves that Hilary Mantel is one of our bravest as well as our most brilliant writers.' Olivia Laing, Observer 'As soon as I opened the book I was gripped. I read it almost non-stop. When I did have to put it down, I was full of regret that the story was over, a regret I still feel. This is a wonderful and intelligently imagined retelling of a familiar tale from an unfamiliar angle.' The Times 'Mantel is a writer who sees the skull beneath the skin, the worm in the bud, the child abuse in the suburbs and the rat in the mattress!Turning her attention to Tudor England, she makes that world at once so concrete you can smell the rain-drenched wool cloaks!This is a splendidly ambitious book!I wait greedily for the sequel, but "Wolf Hall" is already a feast.' Daily Telegraph 'A compelling and humane investigation of the cost of ambition.' Guardian 'Mantel's ability to pick out vivid scenes from sources and give them life within her fiction is quite exceptional!Vividly alive.' London Review of Books 'A stunning book. It breaks free of what the novel has become nowadays. I can't think of anything since "Middlemarch" which so convincingly builds a world.' Diana Athill 'Superb new novel!A second volume is apparently planned; I await it with all the serenity of Henry VIII outside Anne Boleyn's bedroom door.' Nina Caplan, Time Out 'A fascinating read, so good I rationed myself. It is remarkable and very learned; the texture is marvellously rich, the feel of Tudor London and the growing household of a man on the rise marvellously authentic. Characters real and imagined spring to life, from the childish and petulant King to Thomas Wolsey's jester, and it captures the extrovert, confident, violent mood of the age wonderfully.' C.J. Sansom

I have just finished this book and am suffering from withdrawal symptoms! It is quite simply a masterpiece, one of those rare historical novels that not only instructs but also inspires and entertains with intelligence, sympathy and humour. Hilary Mantel has not only succeeded in bringing to life and making relevant in a contemporary context, someone who lived nearly 500 years ago but also humanising one of Britain's most controversial historical personalities. Growing up a Catholic, I always regarded Thomas Cromwell as an evil reformer who was instrumental in the execution of the innocent, principled Thomas More. However, reading this book, I defy anyone not to fall under his spell. Every sentence is supremely crafted, there is nothing to jar a superlative reading experience. Many reviewers critise the length of the novel, however, for me, this is only positive - I just didn't want it to end and cannot wait for its sequel, despite my knowing what will come next (poor, poor Thomas, Henry VIII really was a fiend). I would not only highly recommend the book to fans of this historical period, but also to anyone with no interest or prior knowledge of it, I really cannot see how anyone would be sorry they picked it up. I can now add Hilary Mantel to my list of inspiring authors, I was not familiar with her previous work and am keen to get to know her writing better.

The 500 anniversary of Henry VIII's birth has triggered a real flood of books on the Tudors and the whole period. This period of English history had always been my favourite. So I just love it.

However Thomas Cromwell, Henry's chief ministers and the architect of Reform, had always been a bit elusive. So I am very happy that Hilary Mantel has made him the subject of her monumental novel.

Hilary Mantel has immersed herself into the period and indeed managed to re-created this very time when society changed so much. It is convincing and engaging, but not in an easy manner. She does not tell the story in a very simplistic way. Instead she chooses to show the different layers and the complications and I feel thereby gets very close to the challenges of the time. That does not make necessarily an easy reading, but a rewarding one as one gains a better understanding of the time. Cromwell and his personality became for the first time alive for me. Historic novels are a great tool to show a period or personality as the author sees him or her without being too closely tied to historic evidence. I believe Hilary Mantel has done that to perfection. She has given us her take on Cromwell and the Tudor period.

Wolf Hall, the seat of the Seymours, is for me a symbol for the future, the protestant future as here Queen Jane, mother of the first protestant King Edward VI, lived. And btw Cromwell's son and heir Gregory married Elisabeth Seymour, sister to Queen Jane and the Lord Protector The Duke of Somerset.

All in all, this is an enjoyable but long read (more than 650 pages).

"The king spoke, saying to the wise men of Babylon, 'Whoever reads this writing, and tells me its interpretation, shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around his neck; and he shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.'" -- Daniel 5:7 (NKJV)

Despite the elaborate praise that has accompanied Wolf Hall, I found it hard to get excited about the prospect of reading once again about Henry the Eighth. Within a few pages, I was totally disarmed by Hilary Mantel's unique story-telling style. She moves away from what historians focus on (the big events and the most powerful people) to emphasize character as portrayed in the little events. As a result, Henry the Eighth is at the edge of this book, rather than in the center.

Wolf Hall is primarily the story of Thomas Cromwell and his pursuit of helpful solutions for all those he comes into contact with, provided in the context of utter loyalty . . . first to Cardinal Wolsey and later to Henry the Eighth, Anne Boleyn, and those who depend on Cromwell.

The book is so wonderfully subtle that I found myself rereading many sections, smiling at the various ways that story threads are developed (usually in several ways, overtly and subtly, at the same time). As a result, the story is fresh, new, and very interesting both for content and style.

After reading about half the book, I had an epiphany . . . This book was also designed to be improved by being read aloud, as are all of the best novels. I managed to find a copy of Simon Slater's reading of the unabridged version and was wonderfully rewarded by listening to what I had just read. It was four times better as a recording than in my silent reading.

I recommend you forget reading the book and just listen to it instead. You'll be amazed.

Format: Taschenbuch
Romane über Heinrich VIII. und seine Zeit gibt es wie Sand am Meer, doch dieses Buch war für mich das erste, in dem Thomas Cromwell im Mittelpunkt stand. Geboren als Sohn eines Schmieds, der ihn misshandelte, ging er schon früh ins Ausland, bereiste insbesondere Flandern und Italien und wurde ein erfolgreicher Kaufmann. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach England begann sein politischer Aufstieg, der ihn schließlich in verschiedene Ämter am Hof Heinrichs führte. Der Handwerkerssohn aus einfachen Verhältnissen ist ein versierter Strippenzieher hinter den Kulissen und versteht es, sich geschickt aus diversen Quellen Informationen zu beschaffen. Als Heinrich sich von seiner ersten Frau scheiden lassen will, um Anne Boleyn zu ehelichen, und dies zur Zerreißprobe für sein Königreich wird, ist Cromwell einer seiner wichtigsten Berater ...

Die Handlung dieses von Personen und Ereignissen geradezu überquellenden Romans lässt sich kaum in wenigen Worten zusammenfassen. Wir lernen Cromwell als gequälten kleinen Jungen kennen und treffen ihn danach erst wieder, als er, erwachsen und reich an Auslandserfahrung, wieder in die Heimat zurückkehrt, eine Familie gründet und allmählich Gefallen an der Politik findet. Es sind bewegte Zeiten, nicht nur aufgrund der Geschehnisse am Hof und der internationalen Verwicklungen, sondern auch wegen immer wieder auftretender Seuchen und des aufkommenden Protestantismus, der noch als Ketzerei gilt und erbarmungslos verfolgt wird.

In einer Fülle kleiner, sehr eindringlich geschilderter Szenen und Dialoge wird das London um 1530 mit seinen Sinneseindrücken, Ereignissen und Personen eindringlich zum Leben erweckt.
