Hilary Mantel has pulled off the double and won the Booker for the second year running, for "Bring up the Bodies", the only woman ever to win two years in a row.

Well done her! :)

I saw her on the news yesterday and yes well done her. I actually prefer Bring up the Bodies over Wolf Hall. I can't wait for the last installment.

Yes, well done. I thought Wolf Hall was one of the best books I've ever read, so I can't wait to read this one.

(btw Hilary won in 2009 for Wolf Hall)
