A haunting tale acutely observed
After thoroughly enjoying both "Wolf Hall" and "Bring up the Bodies" I was impatient for the publication of the promised sequel. In the meantime, I thought I would try Hilary Mantel's other works and started with "A Change in Climate".
I was not disappointed at all. This novel is as acutely observed as both of her prize winners. Mantel has captured an era and locations exquisitely. This haunting tale unfolds slowly and perfectly as does her insight into her characters and their development. They live on with me and I find myself wondering how they are getting on (daft I know, but this phenomenon often marks the quality of fictional characters who have really lived for me whilst I was reading or, in this case, listening).
I'm looking forward to meeting and gradually getting to know more people in other Hilary Mantel novels.

A change of climate
When you read the synopsis of this book, you think "Oh we'll, i'll give it a try!
It turns out as a stunning read so well written by Hilary Mantel and you find that although the synopsis is accurate, it is also simplified. The story comes to a very unexpected end. Read it, it is so good!
