In her highly anticipated follow-up to Ophelia, Lisa Klein delivers a powerful reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, featuring a young woman so seamlessly drawn it seems impossible she was not part of the Bard’s original play.
My Rating : 4/5 stars.
My Review : Such a lovely book!!!!In this re-telling of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Lady Macbeth had a daughter, and of course Macbeth decided to get rid of her, because she wasn't the son he wanted. When the daughter was being sent to be killed, one of Lady Macbeth's servants decided to take her and raise her as her own child. What no one knew, was that this particular servant had 2 other sisters, which later pretended to be the 3 witches from the main story. This story revolves around Albia, and how she ended up at Fleance's house and how they fell in love. But Albia has a bigger mission in mind, she plans to kill her father, the evil Macbeth, even if it means death for her.
I definitely loved this book a lot. I loved the original story by Shakespeare, but of course I love this one more, since its told in the perspective of a teenage girl.
I would definitely recommend this book to any fans of Shakespeare, especially his younger female fans.
