    DescriptionLonglisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. By 1535 Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith's son, is far from his humble origins. Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes have risen with those of Anne Boleyn, Henry's second wife, for whose sake Henry has broken with Rome and created his own church. But Henry's actions have forced England into dangerous isolation, and Anne has failed to do what she promised: bear a son to secure the Tudor line. In Bring up the Bodies Hilary Mantel explores one of the most mystifying and frightening episodes in English history: the destruction of Anne Boleyn. This new novel is an audacious vision of Tudor England that sheds its light on the modern world. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.

    Review quote
    'Picks up the body parts where Wolf Hall left off - literary invention does not fail her: she's as deft and verbally adroit as ever' Margaret Atwood, Guardian ' - a magnificent encore from first page to last' Mail on Sunday 'An outstandingly good read - Fans of Wolf Hall will relish this book, but Bring up the Bodies also stands alone' The Economist 'This is a great novel of dark and dirty passions, public and private. It is also an exploration of what still shocks us - A truly great story, it rolls on.' James Naughtie, FT
