This is a great book. It’s a first novel by this author and a heck of a first novel at that. I thought it was so good I did something I’ve never done. I sent an email to the author through her website to tell her how much I enjoyed it and to thank her for writing it. She’s probably gotten loads of email, but I thought why not? I think if I were lucky enough and talented enough to write a book with writing as good as this I would enjoy hearing that someone enjoyed reading it.
So… do I think the writing in this is worthy of praise one would give it’s subject matter? Probably not. There’s only one, or is there, Shakespeare. But it is very well written. Some phrases so good I read them aloud to some of my co-workers. Plus, it was compelling, and especially interesting, if you’re into Shakespeare at all. If not… it’s a good romp of a book with a bit of mystery and mystery solving to boot. I guess what I’m saying is, I liked it. I liked it very much. I’d recommend it. Highly. Check it out. You probably won’t be disappointed.
