  • I loved this It worked on me, in that funny way you can t define or account for I believed in this young Shakespeare, and feel I ve spent a few days in his presence, with the intimacy of those eyes of his on the cover And I m reluctant about first person, which often doesn t do its job for me, doesn t bring me close Not that this is a huge character study it s just a realistic Shakespeare in whom I believed I ve surprised myself with this I m keen on Sh, the works, but I haven t read biography w [...]


  • I like reading historical fiction about Christopher Marlowe, so I was interested to read this book as I always enjoy seeing how different authors portray Marlowe s character in their books.I would say I have a very basic knowledge of Shakespeare s life and am a bit familiar with Marlowe s, and I feel this knowledge helped me get through this book I didn t get lost with the number of characters because I was reasonably familiar with them already I can understand that it might be a little dauntin [...]

  • I enjoyed this book, even tho I am not a Shakespeare or a biography reader It s a very plausible tale, with some interesting twists and depicts the times well without overdoing the Shakespeare language I just wish that people in those times had a wider range of names I wasn t sure about the beginning with the letters, but it does work Recommended as a good read.
