    Shakespeare's Sonnets, Retold is a book that I wished for in high school. Three and a half decades later I think I will take the originals and work through the generations of English language evolution. Rarely is the remake of anything as good as the original, There might be moments of...

    I am an avid fan of Shakespeare and this book is fabulous!! I believe it should be sold as a companion to the sonnets for every student out there. I feel it really gets to the heart of who Shakespeare really was. He was a romantic, but could also be dark and had a wicked sense of humor...

    This was quite a bit of fun. I am no Shakespeare scholar, and while I love watching the Bards plays acted out, I've always found reading him to be difficult. I hadn't read more than one of his sonnets (I'll bet you can guess which one, it's the one everyone reads) before taking on this...

    Retelling Shakespeare's Sonnets is a ridiculously admirable endeavor. James Anthony has made a true splash by retelling our beloved Shakespeare's sonnets. Students and those interested in understanding Shakespeare better now have an excellent guide to do so with Shakespeare's Sonnets, ...

    This was a lovely side by side comparison of Shakespeare?s sonnets to a modern version of each sonnet. Sometimes I did not quite agree with the authors interpretation, but on the whole found the read enjoyable and enlightening. I can definitely see this book as being a useful tool fo...

    I enjoy Shakespeare... and really enjoyed James Anthony's retelling of all the sonnets. Modern language and concepts blended beautifully with the original sentiments penned over 400 years ago... ...

    Shakespeare's Sonnets, Retold is a book that I wished for in high school. Three and a half decades later I think I will take the originals and work through the generations of English language evolution. Rarely is the remake of anything as good as the original, There might be moments of...

    I am an avid fan of Shakespeare and this book is fabulous!! I believe it should be sold as a companion to the sonnets for every student out there. I feel it really gets to the heart of who Shakespeare really was. He was a romantic, but could also be dark and had a wicked sense of humor...

    This was quite a bit of fun. I am no Shakespeare scholar, and while I love watching the Bards plays acted out, I've always found reading him to be difficult. I hadn't read more than one of his sonnets (I'll bet you can guess which one, it's the one everyone reads) before taking on this...

    Retelling Shakespeare's Sonnets is a ridiculously admirable endeavor. James Anthony has made a true splash by retelling our beloved Shakespeare's sonnets. Students and those interested in understanding Shakespeare better now have an excellent guide to do so with Shakespeare's Sonnets, ...

    This was a lovely side by side comparison of Shakespeare?s sonnets to a modern version of each sonnet. Sometimes I did not quite agree with the authors interpretation, but on the whole found the read enjoyable and enlightening. I can definitely see this book as being a useful tool fo...

    I enjoy Shakespeare... and really enjoyed James Anthony's retelling of all the sonnets. Modern language and concepts blended beautifully with the original sentiments penned over 400 years ago... ...

    A fun coffee table book that you can pick up and read in multiple segments or all in one go. Great for students and Shakespeare aficionados. Penguin First to Read Galley ...

    *Thank you First to Read for providing an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.* This book does what it sets out to do. The poems are all in modern-day language making them easy to understand. Now, I thought Shakespeare's poems were supposed to b...

    I am an avid fan of Shakespeare and this book is fabulous!! I believe it should be sold as a companion to the sonnets for every student out there. I feel it really gets to the heart of who Shakespeare really was. He was a romantic, but could also be dark and had a wicked sense of humor...

    Shakespeare's Sonnets, Retold is a book that I wished for in high school. Three and a half decades later I think I will take the originals and work through the generations of English language evolution. Rarely is the remake of anything as good as the original, There might be moments of...

    I am an avid fan of Shakespeare and this book is fabulous!! I believe it should be sold as a companion to the sonnets for every student out there. I feel it really gets to the heart of who Shakespeare really was. He was a romantic, but could also be dark and had a wicked sense of humor...

    This was quite a bit of fun. I am no Shakespeare scholar, and while I love watching the Bards plays acted out, I've always found reading him to be difficult. I hadn't read more than one of his sonnets (I'll bet you can guess which one, it's the one everyone reads) before taking on this...

    Retelling Shakespeare's Sonnets is a ridiculously admirable endeavor. James Anthony has made a true splash by retelling our beloved Shakespeare's sonnets. Students and those interested in understanding Shakespeare better now have an excellent guide to do so with Shakespeare's Sonnets, ...

    This was a lovely side by side comparison of Shakespeare?s sonnets to a modern version of each sonnet. Sometimes I did not quite agree with the authors interpretation, but on the whole found the read enjoyable and enlightening. I can definitely see this book as being a useful tool fo...

    I enjoy Shakespeare... and really enjoyed James Anthony's retelling of all the sonnets. Modern language and concepts blended beautifully with the original sentiments penned over 400 years ago... ...

    A fun coffee table book that you can pick up and read in multiple segments or all in one go. Great for students and Shakespeare aficionados. Penguin First to Read Galley ...

    *Thank you First to Read for providing an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.* This book does what it sets out to do. The poems are all in modern-day language making them easy to understand. Now, I thought Shakespeare's poems were supposed to b...
