it was ok

I've never read this before so I read this edition in preparation for reading Atwood's new book, a retelling of "The Tempest". I don't like a lot of Shakespeare even though I do love a few. I didn't really like "Tempest". It's one of those silly romantic comedies where the lovers say such extravagantly stupid things to each other. This is a bit of everything though as it has a couple of murder plots and it's also a fantasy with magic, spirits and the Roman gods. All the dialogue was ridiculous but the plot was readable enough. There are worse ones than this but I still wasn't too impressed I'll be interested in seeing if Atwood can bring the play to life for me.
