Wolf Hall, by Hillary Mantel (2009). If you didn't already know this is a novelized treatment of the political/religious struggles during Henry VIII's reign during the 1530's. It focuses on the interactions and personalities of Thomas Cromwell, Anne Boleyn and Henry. I struggled for weeks to get this novel. Granted, it is a historical period that doesn't interest me but I thought that this award winning treatment would draw me in and educate me. It did not. It's unique style that jumps around in time and interweaves thought and conversation just kept me confused and bored. From my point of view I could not recommend this book.
