What I liked about this book:
I learned a lot about William Shakespeare and his life as told through this story.
What I didn't like about this book:
This book is based on Shakespeare's The Twelfth Night, which I haven't read. Since I haven't read the play this book could be confusing, which made it hard for me to connect to the characters.
Witchcraft is a prominent theme in this book, so there were several scenes I skipped.
Crude language and inappropriate things were in nearly every chapter.
My rating: 1
