      • Yes, but I wasn’t as captivated as I was by Wolf Hall. Not sure why. I liked all the domestic life of Cromwell that featured so much in Wolf Hall, and also Cromwell’s fleeting thought about Jane Seymour. There are more political machinations in the sequel which are interesting but not quite so engaging. Also, it must be difficult to write a novel where we all know the ending!


        • Yes, I think about the first volume of the trilogy, less historical facts are known, so the author may have been able to use more fantasy than in the later volumes 🙂
