A dark and grim tragedy of a man who murders his king to gain the throne of Scotland.
Although this is not about the book, I just want to point out the date on this review. Yes, that’s correct – the date. I finished it on the 9th, that being a Sunday. And if you look at the review I submitted Saturday (yup, yesterday), you’ll see I finished Much Ado About Nothing. And consequently, the day before that (Friday), I completed Romeo & Juliet. Phew. Wipes brow. For not having ever read Shakespeare, I think reading three Shakespeare’s in three days is a feat worth mentioning. (Not blowing my own horn … well, maybe just one teensy little sound off.)
As to the story of Macbeth, I guess if, A) you are helplessly drawn to dark, grisly tales, B) you relish walking through each thought a man takes to become a murderer, C) adore reading about wives that are criminally minded and pray to the dark spirits to fill them with the direst of cruelty, and D) savor ghoulish witches and their morbid incantations – you just might like this book.
Did I mention it was dark and grisly?
There are mild obscenities, religious profanities and some sensual references. It does have a few slightly graphic sentences and several of the scenes, especially the murder scene and the scenes with the witches are eerie and ghoulish. Here is a link to download Book Radar’s Macbeth.
