A good read

Imagine a work of fiction populated entirely by historical characters, filled with vast and vivid detail, in which heroes and villains have their places reversed. Wolf Hall is that book, told from the perspective of Cromwell, and painting Sir Thomas More as a hateful torturer.

The author's use of pronouns make the text hard to follow. But once you figure out that "he" almost always means Cromwell, the story flows, carrying the reader with it.


Hard to follow

Not being an expert on the history of Great Britain, I found this book pretty hard to follow and am certain that I missed a lot of what was going on. I felt like the end was abrupt. However, I still enjoyed the story quite a bit, and found the writing very interesting and compelling.
