Micro Mention "Romeo and Juliet A Novel"

David Hewson

I found this reinterpretation of the classic Romeo and Juliet tragedy to be wonderful. David Hewson suffuses Juliet's soul with a bit of steel that we don't get in the original Shakespeare play. He also highlights and underscores what I always thought was Romeo's greatest tragic flaw—his wild, unchecked passion. It's that passion that makes him so destructive to himself, and everyone around him—like fire or a hurricane.

Richard Armitage also gives an amazing performance reading this book. His nurse voice is hysterical. Even when it was a serious moment, I couldn't help but chuckle.
