A Place of Greater Safety, Hilary Mantel

Book Reviews, Book Thoughts


I like Hilary Mantel; I thoroughly enjoyed Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies, and when I discovered this book of hers was set in the French Revolution I decided it was probably worth it. After all, the French Revolution is the setting for some of my favourites: Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities, Orczy’s The Scarlett Pimpernel and of course Hugo’s Les Miserables. \

But sadly, I was wrong.
