    Rosens namn av Umberto Eco (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both feature ghastly murders in a monastery in a time of religious conflict and turmoil. The Name of the Rose (medieval Italy) is more philosophical, while Dissolution (Tudor England) is more of a straight-forward historical mystery. Both offer interesting insights into the political and religious issues of the times.… (mer)

shardlake 1; Tudor good but not Mantel
  18cran | Nov 23, 2021 |
Good yarn set in Henry VIII’s time, with our protagonist Shardlake a hunchback lawyer investigating a murder in a monastery at the behest of Thomas Cromwell, Henry's powerful chief minister. The monasteries are corrupt and many religious orders have lost their way, forgetting their vows of poverty and chastity. Cromwell is waging a campaign to have them closed and for the crown to inherit their wealth and most importantly their lands, which was the most important source of all income. Plausible tale with lots of three dimensional characters that keeps you guessing until the very end. ( )

A bit dull. ( )

It is a really enjoyable read. A crime story set in the era of Henry VIII and the conflicts caused by the King declaring himself head of the Church in England. While the story is an interesting thriller driven by the main character's efforts to solve the crime, the book also gives a good insight into the life and the times of Henry VIII. The King's desire to take a new wife, the various political strategies and personalities within religious and lay life colours the story throughout.
A reader might probably need an interest in English history to enjoy it properly. I found it highly likable, well-written, and it is full of suspense. I also found it was more enjoyable than the much-praised Hilary Mantel's Wolf's Hall or Bring up the Bodies, because I think Ms. Mantel writes about Tudor history in a more scholarly way. Mr. Sansom gives just as much information about the times in the text, but it is about less elite levels of Tudor society and it is easy to absorb and accept because he writes from the standpoint of Shardlake, a lawyer who has scoliosis (a curvature of the spine) and has more than his share of unfairness based wholly on his appearance. Ms. Mantel writes with great skill about Thomas Cromwell and other prominent characters who were at the centre of religious and political happenings, and her books are undoubtedly also worth reading, but I find I need to concentrate harder on her writing than on that of Mr. Sansom.
This is the first book in a series, and I am looking forward to reading through all of the others. ( )

A well-written historical mystery, unique for both its characters and setting. A definite winner for fans of historical mystery.
