Book Review: Shakespeare’s Rebel: C C Humphreys

Dear reader I just finished reading “Shakespeare’s Rebel” by C. C. Humphreys. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet in large part because I had wanted more “Shakespeare” themed things after watching Will on TNT  (Click on the link to be taken to the website for the show) and because I personally enjoy stories set in this time period. My personal review of the book is as follows:

I want to start this review off by saying that if you are looking for a story that features Shakespeare prominently this book might not be what you are looking for however if liked “Will”(the series) this book definitely grabs you(in my personal opinion) in the same way. In my personal opinion I feel like it would be an awesome PBS show.

The storyline felt to me personally like a Shakespeare play(s) played out so many of the themes that he loved are woven into the storyline.

It was really refreshing to see such a strong complex, flawed, and deeply loyal main character. In my personal opinion if you want to learn more loyalty you would learn a lot about it from the main character. Overall I personally rate this book an 8 and a half out 10. Happy reading dear reader ☺. Please like and share this review if you like it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
