I got Othello Shakespeare for Everyone Else by the publisher in exchange for an honest review Orion and Devony are in love They have been dating all summer but the two of them are still very happy together The only problem is Orion wants to tell everyone including Devony's father about their relationship while she wants to wait Also little do the two know that Archer Orion's treasurer wants to ruin Orion's life to get revenge on him for ruining his chances to go to a good college When I first started this book I wasn't sure that a YA version of Othello would work especially not one that took place in a high school I figured that the Shakespeare comedies would work better in such a setting but this does work better than I thought it would It wasn't a perfect novel but it was pretty enjoyable for the most part I feel like this would be a good thing for students to read at the same time as Othello They could make comparisons between the two books and maybe write short stories of their own I found it interesting what names the CE Wilson picked for the different characters A lot of them were not ones I would have picked for the characters but for the most part they made sense I didn't uite get while the Iago character was named Archer Speaking of Archer he seemed kind of off to me He seemed like a spoiled little brat than like the Iago in the play especially at the beginning of the novel As it went on he did sort of seem like Iago I guess there is no way that he could be exactly like he anyway since CE Wilson is not Shakespeare I wanted the ending to stay the same as the play's from the very beginning of the book I worried that the author would change it and it would ruin the entire novel I'm not going to tell if she did or not but I did feel like the ending was rushed I would have liked if it was handled better than it was Overall I would give this book three our of five stars I am interested in reading books in this series however I want to see how Wilson writes other novels based on other Shakespeare's plays

Shakespeare’s work features some of the most for Everyone PDF #204 memorable stories and characters ever created yet for too many curious readers the combination of ultra dense dialogue and unfamiliar historical settings make tackling the Bard’s work something between a tedious chore and a confusing mess of bird bolts and uondam carpet mongersWhile it’s nearly impossible to replicate o. A clever and uniue Young Adult interpretation of one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies A brilliant suspenseful read Full review will be posted on my blog on the 14th March on my stop on the 'Othello' Blog Tour author who re writes any well known classic to make it relatable to people today has a huge feat ahead of them none so than authors who rewrite Shakespeare CE Wilson took on an incredibly difficult challenge and not only succeeded but also wrote the story so well that the emotions that are difficult to experience whilst reading Othello in script form just flew off the page and I really connected with the characters and storylineBeing a huge Shakespeare fan I have read all of his known plays and Othello is one of the difficult ones to read and understand CE Wilson did a fantastic job in brining Shakespeare’s characters alive in the 21st century and made their motives feelings and struggles seem very much relatable to real problems that young people face today I liked how it was set in a school which made an excellent way for all the characters to know each other and have jealousy issues related to school related dramaI particularly loved how the characters were introduced to us I really felt the connection between Orion Othello and Dev Desdemona and I could see the love that they had for each other so clearly that it broke my heart to see Orion’s descent into jealousy The pacing of the story was also perfectly in line with the way that Shakespeare’s original work was paced Whilst many may feel the ending is very sudden and not much closure is given I loved how CE Wilson tackled this tragic ending as it was very much in line with how Shakespeare’s plays do end very abruptly after the final dramatic scene with less prominent characters speaking the final linesI gave this book 4 stars as there were a few moments in the book where I felt the dialogue was a bit stilted almost as though it were written for a play and not for a novel but in the grand scheme of how well thought out and produced this book was this was really only a little thingThis is one of the best Shakespeare retellings I have read it is incredibly well thought out and was extremely relatable to young adults and I feel that this sort of book would have helped a lot of my class mates when I was studying Shakespeare at schoolA clever uniue and intriguing young adult adaption of Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’4 Stars

Othello Shakespeare for Everyone Else #2R improve on these works it is thanks to their timeless nature possible to make them accessible to a wider audienceIn this Young Adult retelling of one of William Shakespeare’s most memorable plays join CE Wilson as she Othello Shakespeare Kindle breathes new life into Othello the second book in her series Shakespeare for Everyone ElseWhen Archer decides that he’s had enough of Orion a. 35 Stars rounding up to 4This version of Othello is a re telling set in a high school Since Othello is one of the books that I didn't study Confession time I've only studied Merchant of Venice King Lear and Julius Caesar At least these are the three that I feel fairly confident about I can't really make any comments on whether this is a faithful re interpretation So I'll just judge the book on its own merits and throw in a few I wonder if Shakespeare did this too thoughts now and thenOrion Othello is dating Devony Desmonda the mayor's daughter After six months of sneaking around they're finally publicly a couple Ok so they were outed by 'friends' but same effect Unfortunately for Devony Archer Iago hates Orion for not making him Vice President of the student council and so is plotting and manipulating everyone to get his revenge Even unfortunately Archer succeeds and a lot of people die that cannot be a spoiler the entire plot of Othello is on Wikipedia after allJust now I wrote Unfortunately for Devony and no I did not leave out Orion by mistake The character I felt the most sympathy for was Devony and she basically only has a victim role She never does anything to anyone and she's just collateral damageThere is where I feel the book falls short The characters are all very one sided Now from what I can see Shakespeare is supposed to have portrayed Othello very progressively for this day but unfortunately like the portrayal of Sherlock these are characters that cannot triumph The author was probably working with limitations like these not to mention plot constraints so we have Archer Evil genius who can manipulate almost anyone and yet somehow didn't win the election; Orion way too gullible for his own good and with a terrible temper and too obsessive about Devony; Devony Basically good; and so onI think the most wasted part is the portrayal of Orion Like I said Shakespeare is supposed to have been progressive but Orion here is just a one sided figure He's almost unlikable As unlikable as Archer even He does not listen to reason or anyone except Devony And since he goes from all round good guy to crazy murderer in what feels like overnight but is supposed to be just a few short weeks the transition felt a bit unnatural Shakespeare had his audience who probably believed all that about Othello from the start but I have problems believing that Orion is that baseWhere this book does shine however is in its readability The book is easy to read and hard to put down Even though the plot was already decided in advance if the prose was clunky I would still have had a hard time reading itTo end I'll just note that Othello was originally a play That alone means it's visual and auditory while a book is expected to be deeper to reveal hard to do unless characters constantly break into monologue and even that can feel unconvincing So I suppose the limitations of the play has somehow affected the book itself I did find it an interesting read and importantly it piued my interest in the original playDisclaimer I got this book as part of Oops I Read a Book Again blog tours in exchange for a free and honest reviewThis review was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile
