So who's watching "Wolf Hall"?
Last summer I read Wolf Hall as part of our school library's Summer Challenge and at first I found it quite difficult to follow. Written in the third person, it was difficult at times to know who "he" was, but I was advised to persevere and when I got used to the way it was written I was hooked - absolutely hooked. It was one of those books that I couldn't put down.
I knew that the BBC were going to dramatise it this year, but what I didn't realise was that they were televising both books and it was airing in January. I was saving "Bring up the Bodies" for this summer, but suddenly I needed to read it before the TV series started!
I always like to read the book first, and I couldn't record the series and not watch it because I was dying to see how the BBC had brought this evocate piece of historical fiction to the screen. I finished the book last week and I've watched the first three episodes so far.
I have not been disappointed.
