What the Critics Say

"The mystery alone will engage readers, but Broach adds a number of other interesting details to entice her audience. Readers will also find numerous facts about Elizabethan history, theories about Shakespeare's writings, and, perhaps most importantly, a moral but not preachy tale. The main characters are all well developed, and the dialogue is both realistic and well planned." (School Library Journal)
"[Listeners] will appreciate the true emotions, the rich language, and the revelations of many-layered mysteries that tie the past to the present." (Booklist)

    "Shakespeare or de Vere"

    Quick moving and enjoyed by the entire family. Introduces literary motifs in a interesting way, along with Shakepeare (or Edward de Vere, whichever you believe).

    Story
    "Keeps your interest."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shakespeare's Secret to be better than the print version?

    That depends on if your more the reading type or the listening type. I'm the more listening type so I liked the audio version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Anne Bolen's Jewelry Mystery.


    What does Jenny Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The relationships.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed, but I liked it very much. I wanted to listen to it more than once.


    Any additional comments?

    I first heard this audio book when I checked it out at the library. I liked it so much that when I saw it a year later in Audio Books I had to buy it.
