bookshelves: fantasy, romance
Recommended for: Shakespeare enthusiasts who don't mind a little fantasy / fan-lit
Read from December 16, 2010 to February 01, 2011, read count: 1

Sarah A. Hoyt may have the chops, knowledge, and research backgroup to write a very historically reasonable (aside from the faeries) protrayal of Shakespeare's early life, but, this book did not deliver.

Shakespeare enthusiasts may enjoy sifting through the plot and various dialogue sequences to find and place the Shakespearean works. But, for me, this was distracting. The references I noticed, seemed heavy handed and took away from the flow of the language (infusing too much flowery to Hoyt's more modern prose).

While the premise was very interesting, I do not plan on reading more in this series.
