So few of us get to enjoy the actual stories of Shakespeare's plays because we are so pre-occupied with trying to understand them. This extremely well written book is the answer to that. The authors take some small liberties with the story line which only enhance the enjoyment of the book. It is dramatic, dark and atmospheric.

Thought this was a great way to read Shakespeare. I read the play in high school but due to the complicated language most of the plot and dialogue went right over my head. If asked what happened in the play I wouldn't have been able to say much more than that there were three witches and Lady Macbeth said the line "Out damn spot." I didn't even know that the play is based on some fact (Macbeth, King Duncan, Banquo et al were real as were some of their actions). Highly recommend this to anyone who wishes they'd paid more attention to Shakespeare during school. I hope the authors do novels for some of the other Shakespeare plays.
