Not a bad book. Mostly a novelty on my shelf as I wanted to try reading some gay fiction of which I have admittedly read little. It doesn't stand out as a must read, but the writing is good, and the story both believable and entertaining. There is an attempt at the Shakespearean in the sense of combining many characters within a spare story. For the most part it holds up.
