Mantel does it again (again)

http://www.costabookawards.com/

So, Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel has won again, this time the overall winner of the Costa Book Awards. I was intrigued to see who was going to win because the shortlist was made of of so many different types of book, and I guessed it might be hard to judge between them. The judges apparently found it difficult to judge, as the five contenders all came from very different categories. It seems, though, that Bring Up The Bodies is just too good, with the judges making a unanimous decision and describing the book as “head and shoulders” above the other contenders and “quite simply the best book”.

Perhaps I should read this book….?
