Simon Vance reads Brings Up the Bodies

Was my rave review of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall sequel enough to pique you interest?  Or, interest piqued,  could you possibly be on a book-buying-ban, attempting to make a dent in that teetering TBR stack on the bedside table? Maybe you never finished Wolf Hall (which, by the way, isn’t necessary to enjoy the sequel).  Or do you think historical fiction just isn’t your thing?  *sigh* There could be 99 reasons why you might delay reading Bring Up the Bodies.

Well.  Finding the time to read ain’t one. :-)

Macmillan Audio has released the audiobook of Hilary Mantel’s Bring Up the Bodies – read by none other than Simon “Golden Voice” Vance (a.k.a – Booklist’s “Voice of Choice”).  He is so delightfully and authentically British that you’ll want to pinch his cheeks and offer him a scone.

Below is an excerpt of Simon reading from the opening pages.  All you need to do is click on the link, relax and let those dulcet tones wash over you.
