"A perfect blend of the intimate and the epic, the story both honors its origin and works in its own right." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Great Potential, Poor Delivery

The premise of this novel is incredibly interesting. But the characters are poorly drawn and the mystery was predictable. The romance is also painful to listen to. The love triangle features two men who are both jerks to the female lead, Rosaline. One is a misogynist who calls her names and blames her for everything that happened in Romeo and Juliet, because she had the nerve not to love Romeo back. The other gets her drunk and uses the rules of their misogynistic society to force her into an engagement of his choosing. In the end, all of Benvolio's verbal abuse wins him Rosaline's heart. It was gross. I seriously got to the point where I was skipping through Rosaline and Benvolio's scenes because of how agonizing they were.

The only reason I continued pushing through the novel was because it will be a new series on ABC and I wanted to be familiar with the work the show is adapted from. So far, I'm liking the changes I am seeing based on the trailer for the the TV series and I trust Shondaland to produce quality storytelling. So hopefully this will be a case where the adaptation is better than the original show. It should be easy to do since the bar is already so low.
