    I really don t understand how and why anyone would give an unpublished book 1 star and 4,5 stars for that matter Isn t it high time Goodreads did something about it

    One reviewer knocked the book, claimed Mantel savages the royals just to sell books The book is not published yet And for goodness sake, read the speech Mantel obviously feels sorry for Kate, and the free press gleefully and intentionally misrepresented her comments to sell newspapers Who is guilty here

    It feels like we ve been waiting for this one forever, but I think it s only five years or so.I have never felt such kinship with G.R.R Martin fans.

    There should never be a book review before it is actually published I have enjoyed and appreciate Goodreads but very disappointed that they would allow comments on an unwritten book Really Apparently, some oversight is needed.

    Farewell A long farewell to all my greatnessThis is the state of man today he puts forthThe tender leaves of hopes tomorrow blossoms,And bears his blushing honours thick upon himThe third day comes a frost, a killing frost,And when he thinks, good easy man, full surelyHis greatness is a ripening, nips his root,And then he falls, as I do I have ventured,Like little wanton boys that swim on bladders,This many summers in a sea of glory,But far beyond my depth my high blown prideAt length broke under me, and now has left meWeary, and old with service, to the mercyOf a rude stream, that must for ever hide me.Vain pomp and glory of this world, I hate ye I feel my heart new opened O, how wretchedIs that poor man that hangs on princes favours There is betwixt that smile we would aspire to,That sweet aspect of princes, and their ruin,More pangs and fears than wars or women have And when he falls, he falls like Lucifer,Never to hope again Enter Cromwell, standing amazedShakespeare The Life of King Henry the Eighth, Act 3, Scene 2
