Well I dragged myself through it and didn't enjoy it. Then, assuming there was something wrong with me, I pushed myself through Bring Up The Bodies and didn't enjoy it either. Wish I hadn't bothered really!
Yes, yes, yes. I found it difficult at first and, to be fair, there were some conversations I had to read several times to work out who was saying what. But I found this book totally compelling. I'm normally a bit of a skip reader, someone who doesn't appreciate unnecessary detail, but I lapped up every word. There were some paragraphs I read several times, simply because I found them so delicious. This is one of my favourite books and I'm a bit disappointed that she was persuaded to change her approach for Bring up the Bodies, which I haven't yet read.
