Macbeth (William Shakespeare) BOOK REVIEW
Another book I've read in one sitting!
In a nutshell:
Some witches tell this one dude that he is totally king and the dude totally believes them. #modernlanguagebecauseiamverycool
The Actual Review:
Before we start, I read Macbeth so that I would be prepared and armed with ideas for class discussion before we actually start reading it. Overachiever? No. Terrible at on-the-spot discussion? Hell yeah.
The story of Macbeth is by no-means comic or happy - let us get that out of the way: it is in fact violent and dark. Being my first Shakespeare, I really struggled with the language and found that listening to the audiobook whilst reading it helps (Hannah's Top Tip right there, guys).
I'm not sure how to review this if I am honest; I can't comment on it like a usual book as it is a play. But, with witches, royals and murder - you can't go wrong , can you?
⚫️ Don't read it on a rainy day
⚫️ Obviously, the language isn't easy for the Bard novice.
⚫️ The plot is interesting.
