2012 Man Booker Prize Winner Announced

Last night in London the winner of 2012 Man Booker Prize was announced and it was Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel.  Not exactly a surprise as she was the best known of the authors in the list and had won the Booker in 2009 for her book Wolf Hall.  Customers keep asking me if I have read Bring Up the Bodies but I have to confess that I haven’t read Wolf Hall yet, despite a love of historical fiction.  Now, I think I better move them both to the top of my reading pile.  For those who have already read them, do I need to read Wolf Hall before Bring Up the Bodies?
