It’s ok, I landed on the thickest part of me – my head. I sprained my gralloch though.

Laugh

“Defenestrate” is on pg 64 in my eBook version TudorFan, you might have to halve the page count for the paperback version. She also used the word “gralloch”. Pg 72. Maybe the Booker Prize goes to whoever can look up the fanciest words in their Thesaurus?

Found it! Page 33 in my hardbacked version. Not a word I would have recognised so I can’t understand why I didn’t look it up at the time I was reading the book. I think she was attempting a little joke? I don’t suppose you will give her the benefit of the doubt?! Wink

Sorry, I’ve done something to the quote, it hasn’t posted properly.

LOL. Shakespeare has got a lot to answer for. In fact you can have a lot of fun with his oath’s and swearwords.

Craig told me what defenestrate meant Laugh But I had to look up gralloch.

If the whole book was a joke then I will give her a comedy prize myself. I just heard Louise’s scream of outrage from across the sea….

My favourite character in Bring up the Bollocks was Chapuys’ hat. I had some very warm feelings about that hat.

Bill how about this to bamboozle your students.
“Your abilities are too infant-like for doing much alone.”
“More of your conversation would infect my brain.”
“There’s no more faith in thee than in a stewed prune.”
“Away, you mouldy rogue, away!”
“A fusty nut with no kernel.”
“Thou be a mewling dizzy-eyed giglet.”

Better to defenestrate rather than to gralloch!

I’ve just finished reading Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies and didn’t think they were all that bad! Sure, they may not be entirely accurate in terms of what actually happened, but it is historical fiction after all. The author may embellish where they wish to. If Hilary Mantel is going around saying that what she’s written is entirely accurate and true then that is a problem, though.

That aside, I’m really excited for the series to start! I adore Thomas Cromwell for reasons even I do not understand. Ever since I read Dissolution by C.J Sansom I’ve wanted to know more and more about him. The portrayal of him in the Tudors (TV series) broke my heart. I loved these books and accurate or not, I don’t think they were all that bad! I did find her way of writing extremely hard to follow though.. Three different men in a room having a conversation and you’re just meant to know who “He” is each time someone speaks. @__@
