This book is *super* short, but it still took me like two months to finally finish it. I kept getting distracted by other, shinier, books. The Fool's Girl is a vague re-telling or continuation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, with Shakespeare as one of the characters in the novel. I don't have any particular affinity to Twelfth Night, other than mostly knowing the outline, so I enjoyed this "historical fiction" take on it. Some parts seemed to drag in the story telling, as well Feste seemed awesome at first, and then less awesome as the book went on. And I really thought one of the "good" characters was going to have some kind of evil twist, but I guess the author went for the happy ending instead.
