I almost didn’t finish Wolf Hall, and I’m not really sure why I did. It tells the story of the Anne Boleyn era of Henry VIII’s reign through the perspective of Thomas Cromwell. I found it to be quite uncompelling. The storyline was confusing to follow because it kept changing perspective, and half the time I wasn’t sure who was talking or who was being referred to. The tone is somewhat distanced and I never grew any attachment to any characters. I didn’t really care what happened to them in the end. It was disappointing as I was looking forward to a good historical novel, but it did not provide the satisfying and captivating story I was looking for.
