Bring Up the Bodies (2012)
language
English
4.24 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The historical plausibility is astonishing, you start to feel you inhabit this world and start to adopt its norms, it's fear of disease, the constant references to authority (of God or king), the jockeying for position and how the common man is almost unseen. It struck me how eru...
