Read in November, 2010

Started as a bathroom read but I was impressed by how well this novelization-of-a-movie-based-on-a-play was done. It's actually a quick, fun, read in it's own right.

Not only does it convey the spirit of the movie which I enjoyed but it skillfully omits most of those cringeworthy parts that seemed to be required for teen movie viewing.

Besides... ya gotta love a Shakespeare inspired story that retains the phrase "mewling rampalian wretch!"
