  • Brilliant

    Suddenly the Bard takes on life and shape through the eyes of his younger brother, Richard. A player with his brother's company, Richard struggles to keep a roof over his head. Just as things start to improve, everything shifts. Cleverly and thoughtfully written, I got an insight into Elizabethan England as well our most famous playwright.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Brilliant

    Once again Bernard Cornwall has captured the essence of the period. Having a lifelong passion for Shakespeare this novel placed me in direct contact with the players, their company and the world of performance. 'The play's the thing'

  • An enjoyable read

    Bernard Cornwell delivers another well - rsearched and enjoyable book. Cornwell has a great knack of bringing the period he is writing about to life which he does in this tale of the birth of the theatre. Although lacking the Shardlake series depth, this is still a book I would strongly recommend.

  • Fools and Mortals

    Bernard Cornwell never lets me down. Coming off the Uther chronicles I wasn't sure if this would work. But he did his magic and pulled me into Elizabethan London. This is one of those books that you rush to finish because you have to know how it ends, and then you are immediately sad that the book is finished..... I cannot wait for his next book, and I know I will love it, whatever it is

    Thanks for your feedback!
