“For once in their lives, they loved themselves.”
This book is part of a series of Shakespeare’s plays retold. Hag-Seed tells the story of The Tempest. As one who spent most of my childhood confused at Shakespeare, this book really helped me to appreciate his work. I was torn about how many stars I thought it deserved because, to be honest, it was a bit slow. But the further I got through it, the better it was. Margaret Atwood is always impressive.
If you like Shakespeare or The Tempest, then you’d probably enjoy it. Likewise, if you’re an Atwood fan. It’s pushed me to seek out a production of The Tempest playing near me, so it must have been good!
