Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel. It's historical fiction, but far from an "easy read"!
But it's worth it, as this is a wonderful novel.
I'd recommend just assuming that any time you see "he" to assume it's Cromwell himself, and trying to read it when you've got a long block of time to read, as I found reading it in a sustained stretch helped a good bit.
