This is a review by Deidre Donahue in USA Today for the audiobook of Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel : USA Today Audiobook review 

I shall also quote here from the description for this book on the Whole Story Audiobooks purchase page:

Hilary Mantel describes the audio version of Bring Up The Bodies, narrated by Simon Vance:

‘Bring Up The Bodies is a text which sets out to multiply ambiguities… This version deploys a large cast of characters with skill and clarity. Simon Vance is expert in differentiating the men and women of the Tudor court and capturing their personalities. His reading is both tender and energetic. As if by telepathy, he has preserved the rhythm of the text as I heard it when I wrote it. No author could hope for a more faithful and imaginative audio version.’

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
