Publisher's Summary

William Shakespeare's The Tempest retold as Hag-Seed

Felix is at the top of his game as artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions have amazed and confounded. Now he's staging a Tempest like no other: Not only will it boost his reputation, it will heal emotional wounds.

Or that was the plan. Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. And brewing revenge.

After 12 years, revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It's magic! But will it remake Felix as his enemies fall?

Margaret Atwood's novel take on Shakespeare's play of enchantment, retribution, and second chances leads us on an interactive, illusion-ridden journey filled with new surprises and wonders of its own.

    "Couldn't wait for it to be over"

    I was hoping that this was going to be really enjoyable. Just wasn't. Extremely unrealistic as far the plot and I didn't care for the parallel to the Tempest, wasn't the best written. I hate the rap songs that were in some 1950's "Rocko" Mafia accent. I'm survey this will appeal to some (Shakespeare Fanatics) , but not to me. I really like Atwood's prose, but not on display here.

    "Drag deed"

    A little tortuous and over long. Like a literary equation that had to be solved and examples of every possible explanation wrung out. Impossible to care about the characters-/ciphers all.

    "Favourite Atwood"

    My favourite Margaret Atwood novel yet!
    Narration was just right.. Loved the subtle Canadian cadence.
