Wolf Hall Review,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wolf Hall (Kindle Edition)
I think this is a book that is better read in paper book form than on a Kindle.There are so many characters and the who's who at the start of the book is too small to read and I could not enlarge the font on those pages.(Lots of different Thomass for example). Flicking from the current reading page to the start is not so easy on the Kindle.
The history aspect of the book is interesting but the book is a bit too long for my liking. I wanted to finish it but was not particularly enjoying some parts.It is also difficult to follow who is speaking as there are not many speech marks. Reading the book encouraged me to look up details on certain historical characters to find out more about them. Thomas Cromwell, the main character especially as I had never heard of him before. I wanted to know what happened to him and how, if at all, he was related to Oliver.

You make an excellent point as regards the Kindle edition. My kindle's own dictionary was pretty good at giving a bit of background info on the more infamous characters and even helped out with some of the obscure religious terms but an opportunity was there to make an excellent kindle edtion with tailored background data for many more of the characters and the historical context. As it stands to have the family trees not even legible is just poor. For the novel though, A+!

Mrs Miniver says:
Cromwell's nephew Richard Williams took his uncle's surname, and was the great grandfather of Oliver.
