So many interesting and conflicting "facts" about Shakespeare. I had no idea there was so much controversy over Shakespeare's life. I enjoy reading historical fiction from this time period, and I liked the way Bryson included the greater English history in the Shakespeare history.
I've cried my way through this amazing book twice. Sad tears for the terrible things Luis endured. Happy tears for the power in the relationship between a dog and his person. Disappointed tears for how terribly we treat the brave men and women who risk their lives so that I can sit behind a computer and review this book. And hopeful tears for one man's ability to move forward - and what that means for the rest of us struggling through it.
Luis reads his book himself. Hearing the harrowing tale in his own voice reminds us that this book retells one man's very personal struggle to survive, against all odds.
I like the way this story pulled in other events and people of that time. So many pieces start fitting together when I read a book like this. And I like this narrator in every book she's performed.
Great insight into how habits are formed. And a somewhat disturbing view into how corporate America can suck us in to habitually buying their productcs (burgers & fries, shampoo, gambling, etc.).
