Hilary Mantel's Thomas Cromwell trilogy.

Never been a historical fiction sort, but I'm really taken in by these.

The Wolf Hall trilogy was so good.

I understand that Cromwell has to die in the end, but I still can't stop reading. It's riveting in a way. Anyway, I just finished book 1, so I have a long way to go.

You should enjoy the last two as well, I certainly did. What was interesting is how Cromwell changes over time, but not in a way he Cromwell recognizes, but the reader will notice how he grows into the role and how it changes him.

I need to find an analysis of the work somewhere and dig into it again.
