confusion #2 as follow-up from Wolf Hall

Confusion continues in this #2 novel in Mantel's trilogy on Thomas Cromwell.

The novel is an imaginative tale spun as though you are viewing another person's dream, peering through some mist of the mind, wandering in and out of personal and public areas of thought. Even in a single paragraph there is no clear separation of a character's thought. Use of quotation marks would have been helpful in discerning who was supposed to speaking or imagining what was being said.

Most of the time there is no clear delineation between the character's actual thought, the imagination of the author, or dream-like state among several characters interacting in a surreal situation, leaving you to wonder if such ever took place, or only was something the character hoped would take place, but never did.

If you like reading something and never really being sure what's going on, then this book is for you. It will help to watch the video production along with reading the book. They need each other to help clarify what is going on.
