All three entries in Hilary Mantel's award-winning Wolf Hall Trilogy, brought together for the first time in audio.
In Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall trilogy, one of our very best writers brings the opulent world of the Tudors to bloody, glittering life. It is the backdrop to the rise and rise of Thomas Cromwell: lowborn boy, charmer, bully, master of deadly intrigue, and, finally, most powerful of Henry VIII's courtiers. But the bloody theatre of Cromwell's ascension will leave no one unscathed.
This collection includes expertly adapted versions of Wolf Hall, Bring up the Bodies and The Mirror and the Light alongside The World of Wolf Hall, a listening guide which explores the key themes and historical context of the novels, and offers listening group questions to discuss.
Read by Dan Stevens, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Joseph Kloska, and Anna Bentinck.

[Praise for Wolf Hall] "Dizzyingly, dazzlingly good... Hugely exciting, packed full of power struggles and political machinations, but also delightfully poetic, vivid in image and phrase. A rich and subtle wonder." (Daily Mail)
[Praise for Bring Up the Bodies] "The greatest modern English prose writer writing today." (Peter Stothard, Chairman of the 2012 Man Booker Prize)

A Tudor Treat!
I groaned when I realised that there were to be not one but three readers of the exquisitely written series Surely no one could maintain the drama, characterisation and clarity of the superb Volume One; I was wrong. All three books are superbly read; I was immersed in the times and, towards the end, hoping against my better knowledge that Henry would save his servant, Thomas.
One caveat only. Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury is consistently MISPRONOUNCED as CRAM-NER! Once you’ve heard it it irritates like a stone in the shoe. Could it be retrospectively edited?
This minor fault aside a superb tour de force!

these are not the complete novels!!
the first 6 chapters are "guides" to the novels. Wolf Hall starts in Chapter 7, but it is not the complete book! the book is summarized into roughly 8 hours, while if you purchase the audiobook for Wolf Hall separately it lasts 25hours! the Audiobook's description should have been clear about this.
