Audiobook review, listen for $0.99 from Libro.fm

An eye-opening account of one man's family relationships and class struggles. Asking the question "Who is the white working-class?" does not get an easy answer if one at all. Some of Vance's situations as a child are hard to imagine and hard to listen to, but in the end provides an insightful look into an area and culture of a country that has come into play in our politics today.

Nothing can make one feel happier to be forced to shelter in place than contemplating being in Thomas Cromwell’s shoes.  The blacksmith’s son who rose to be the most trusted and honored adviser to an increasingly erratic and dangerous Henry VIII was in a situation in which it was impossible to win.  In this third volume in the Booker Prize-winning series Henry goes through the last 4 of his 6 wives, while Cromwell tries to help him fend off Scotland, France, Spain and the Holy Roman Empire, while also avoiding the plague, the “sweating sickness,” and scheming noblemen determined to destroy him.  Mantel’s writing is lively and modern with frequent sword-thrusts of wit, and she sees into the hearts of the major players who, in history, have often been portrayed as villains.  A great read—you’ll be pulled into another world, but one that has parallels to our own. - reviewed by Nikki
