I have not always enjoyed the Man Booker Prize winning novels.
But I enjoyed Wolf Hall despite its maybe excessive length and I am enjoying now more, much more "Bring Up The Bodies".
I got to the point where Henry VIII's riding accident at a tournament is described:
absolute, breathtaking vividness of details.
But at every page the word the comes to mind is "immediacy".
Details bouncing up and out towards you in an instantaneous, unique way.
Somebody said that poetry doesn't tell or describe but it happens.
This can be valid also for this kind of fiction which is poetry too.
