Sorry,I've been away and have only just seen this. Yes, definitely worth persevering.
If you do get to the end, can you tell me why you think HM called the book "Wolf Hall"? Does anyone else know? I realise that Wolf Hall was the residence of the Seymours, but the novel stops before the Seymours really came to prominence, and none of the action actually takes place at Wolf Hall.
You will probably laugh at this, but as an ex-Seymour, I wondered about that myself, and came to the conclusion that she probably just liked the name! The Seymours would have been quite prominent at that time anyway, and also remained so for quite some time. I thought also that the name had other meanings, such as implying that the King's abode was probably a dog-eat-dog environment etc. The Seymours were quite an interesting family, if you read up about them.
