    Brilliant.

    After finishing the last page of Atwood's brilliant retelling of Shakespeare's The Tempest, my heart hurt so much that I hugged the book to my chest. What a completely delightful, wonderfully intelligent read. I was drawn in slowly by Atwood's story, until suddenly I found myself resentful of anything that forced me to put the book down. Hag-Seed often made me laugh, and once brought me to the brink of tears; I thrilled through the fourth act and it sincerely made me reflect on the need for widespread rehabilitation-focused prison models. In other words, this book has something for everyone, as would any Shakespearean play. Hag-Seed is perfect Shakespeare, and my favourite novel (so far) by Atwood. I loved it.

    Hag_Seed

    I'm a great fan of Margaret Atwood's work. Her usual skill with language, imagination and wit are display here, but she is too constrained by her purpose: to provide a contemporary retelling of The Tempest. There is too much detail of the production of the play for my liking. Moreover, I find the working of the revenge plot too elaborate and unconvincing.

    Delightful and Hilarious!

    I found it delightful. I frequently laughed and thoroughly enjoyed the many references not only to the Shakespearean play but also to the infighting at Stratford. A tongue in cheek expose of behind the scenes manipulation at the Festival. Loved it!

    Hag-seed

    This was an excellent read. I was not sure about the book at the beginning, however, it kept pulling me back until I had to finish it.
