Wolf Hall iPhone app
In Wolf Hall, Hilary Mantel brings the opulent, brutal world of the Tudors to bloody, glittering life. Wolf Hall is the backdrop to the rise and rise of Thomas Cromwell: lowborn boy, charmer, bully, master of deadly intrigue, and, finally, the most powerful of Henry VIII’s courtiers.
The app contains the full text of Wolf Hall plus a number of multimedia extras and exclusives:
• A 30-minute video discussion between Hilary Mantel and renowned historian David Starkey, filmed at the Tower of London
• A cast of characters and Tudor family trees
• An essay by Hilary on the challenges of writing historical fiction
• A regularly updated news feed containing further videos, podcasts and extras
As well as a paid app at £6.99 there is a free app which contains chapter one of Wolf Hall, the news feed, and a short clip from the video discussion.
