    Amazing, a truly great read

    Absolutely loved this book -- a rich story with great characters, lots of plot twists (well, it IS Winterson's cover of Shakespeare). It's one of those engrossing books that you can't put down and luckily you don't have to until you've finished it -- it is a short read. Or maybe I just read it at speed because I was liking it so much. Am now keen to read more in this 400th anniversary celebration -- Winterson is just one of many fabulous writers who are retelling works of Shakespeare in honour of the anniversary of his death.

    Loved every page.

    Wow wow wow. I felt giddy reading this book. Winterson is a master storyteller, and how she plays (<--deliberate word choice) with Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale literally knocked my socks off. And the thing she does at the end, in the penultimate chapter? DUDE. As soon as I finished the last page, I immediately put this book on my "favourites" bookshelf. I can't wait for the next book in this series, and in the meantime, I'll need to start reading more Winterson.
