I liked it, but it was more like a emotional history book. Not really sure what the real story was, but that was probably because there was no real ending. When you know two of the characters, including the hero of the story, are eventually beheaded you would imagine that story would touch on that in some way. It was also weird how the Jane Seymour character was portrayed. Historically, you know she will go on the be Henry's next wife but the book really doesn't give any hint towards that and describes her like a weak, cry baby. Being that not much happens with her and her family, the title Wolf Hall also seems inappropriate. Not really sure how I feel about this book, other than it's not complete.
