Having never been a truly great fan of Shakespeare i approached this set of lectures with more then a great deal of trepidation, sometimes expanding your horizons can be more like trying to look at the midday sun rather then watching a cool sunset.
I was incredibly surprised how Prof Saccio made me fall in love with Shakespeare...not just my personal favourites like Twelfth Night but the histories the tragedies as well. The themes discussed in the lectures coupled with the performance of Saccio makes for an incredibly enjoyable, informative and thoroughly entertaining listen.
Whether you be a fan of Shakespeare or a novice you wont be disappointed.
Rags and Riches is a great read, the story follows the lives of Sam and Seb scottish siblings, trying to survive life,love and of course family. It is really a heartwarming set of accounts and characters which quickly become a part of your family.
A great story, with characters you cant help but fall in love with. Its the pirate adventures we all dreamed of as children, escaping the humdrum of society and running away to find adventure.
The pirates make the story, the mismatch collection of swashbucklers each flawed in their own ways, tin ears,bad knees...a penchant for falling in love, but all suffer from the inability to read; which makes for endless fun upon the Sinful Sausage(their ship).
Mistakenly landing on "dessert" island instead of a desert island...you can't help but love an island made entirely of pudding...i want to live in a fruitcake*yum*.
