    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Michael says: "Mr Moore does it again."
    "Absolutely awful"
    Overall

    Reads as if written by a hormone charged precocious fourteen year old boy. The plot is ridiculous, the action preposterous. Filled with awkward, creaking plot contrivances. While the narrators voice has the nasal whine quality of a dentists drill. I bought it because of all the sterling reviews. I was expecting a bawdy literate romp. What I got was absolute drivel. Don't waste your money.
