As an English teacher and a fan of Shakespeare, I was disappointed with Brown's treatment of the Bard. I should have known better, because when I heard her interviewed on NPR, and she read an excerpt of the book that contained a Shakespearean quotation, she had no idea where it came from (Romeo and Juliet). I read it anyway... it's an interesting story with believable characters, but it didn't get a rise of emotion from me at any point. I enjoyed her portrayal of setting. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't mind Shakespeare, but isn't passionate about his work.
