    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.

    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

    I knew nothing of theatre way back when other than no women were allowed to act. What was happening then between the owners and the actors, probably is still happening today. What an interesting read. Excellent author and will continue reading his books.
