Macbeth
Macbeth | Jo Nesbo
A HEART-POUNDING NEW THRILLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SNOWMAN AND THE THIRST Set in the 1970s in a run-down, rainy industrial town, Jo Nesbo's Macbeth centers around a police force struggling to shed an incessant drug problem. Duncan, chief of police, is idealistic and visionary, a dream to the townspeople but a nightmare for criminals. The drug trade is ruled by two drug lords, one of whoma master of manipulation named Hecatehas connections with the highest in power, and plans to use them to get his way. Hecates plot hinges on steadily, insidiously manipulating Inspector Macbeth: the head of SWAT and a man already susceptible to violent and paranoid tendencies. What follows is an unputdownable story of love and guilt, political ambition, and greed for more, exploring the darkest corners of human nature, and the aspirations of the criminal mind.

Nesbo transports the Scottish play to a grim 1970s Glasgow - Macbeth himself is a police inspector whose decision to murder Chief Commissioner Duncan is in part motivated by a desire to clean up the city. I wanted to enjoy this more than I did - Nesbo's Macbeth and Lady are cardboard cutouts compared to their originals and all the doubledealing among the drug lords and police officers just got tedious after 250 pages or so.

After a slow start when I nearly gave up this suddenly grabbed me hard. I love Jo Nesbo and this didn‘t disappoint; it reads like a speeded up, crazy Harry Hole story. I admit I haven‘t read Macbeth so I came at it purely as a Jo Nesbo fan. I can‘t say whether it worked as a modern retelling of Shakespeare but I can say it worked as the brutal, nasty, gritty crime thriller with so many of the flawed characters that Jo Nesbo does best. A great read

Emilymdxn I felt the same about the slow start and picking up as it got madder later on! Interestingly I‘m a big Shakespeare fan but know almost nothing about Jo Nesbo - read one or two books years ago but don‘t remember much and not a big fan. Cool to see this worked well for Shakespeare and Jo Nesbo fans both! I‘m loving how much these retellings appeal to loads of people across genres 6mo
jenniferw88 Having studied Shakespeare's original 3 years in a row I really enjoyed this retelling as I could easily see the similarities and differences between the two! 6mo
JillR @Emilymdxn it was your review that persuaded me to keep going, thank you! 6mo

JillR @jenniferw88 that‘s so good to hear, as I was reading it I wondered how it read to those that know the original well. I‘m now inspired to try some of the other retellings... 6mo
jenniferw88 @JillR I wasn't overkeen on Atwood's interpretation of The Tempest, as the characters weren't as clear cut as they were in Nesbø's! 6mo
JillR @jenniferw88 I have Hag-seed in my stack! I was nervous about starting it but this has inspired me to give it a try. Saying that having only ever read Twelfth Night I will continue to have no idea how true to the original the retellings are 😆 (edited) 6mo

I wasn‘t convinced to begin with but came to love this. I saw how nightmarish, melodramatic yet profound Macbeth‘s story is. The unclear setting, the roaring macho officers driving each other to distraction under a glowering sky, it felt like a myth or something. Hecate the drugs baron and Macbeth the almost-recovered addict worked really really well for me. Banquo telling Fleance he loves him in a car chase. Lady Macbeth maybe not so much.

Susannah You listened to it on audiobook? How was the narrator? My library has this on audio, and your review has really piqued my interest! (edited) 6mo
Emilymdxn @Susannah I liked the narrator! Didn‘t have lots of opinions about him but he was good, lovely Scottish accent 6mo

JillR I just started this and 40 pages or so in I‘m already ready to bail. I love Jo Nesbo but 🤷‍♀️. Should I hang in there?! 6mo
Emilymdxn @JillR I think it depends if you like Macbeth more than if you like Jo Nesbo personally. I didn‘t really enjoy the other Nesbo books I read but I loved it as a Shakespeare fan - maybe it‘s better as a version of Macbeth than a Jo Nesbo book? I did feel like it picked up as I went through but if you‘re not enjoying it no reason to carry on! 6mo
JillR @Emilymdxn I‘m afraid to say I‘ve read no Shakespeare since school, and even then we didn‘t read Macbeth, hmmmm, I‘ll maybe give it to 100 pages then decide! (I procrastinate so much about bailing...) 6mo
DGRachel @JillR I struggled at first, too, but I love both Macbeth and Nesbo, so I grabbed the audiobook and actually flipped back and forth. Once I got the cadence from the audio, I found the book easier to read and ended up loving it. 6mo

I thought this retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth was fantastic. Just a great read and brought back alot of memories of reading the original in school. Duff (Macduff) is just amazing!

This has inspired me to read more of the Hogarth Shakespeare series. Vineger Girl by Anne Tyler will be next, which is a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew.

jenniferw88 @suzie.reads you'll definitely need to have read/a copy of the tempest near you when/if you read it. I wasn't a huge Handmaid's Tale fan either, but this is quite different and works well as a novel on it's own, it's just the retelling that was a bit off for me (mainly because the character names are significantly different - part of the reason I'm enjoying Macbeth more is because I can recognise them!) 7mo

Written for the Hogarth Shakespeare project, I thought this would be amazing but I didn‘t love it as I thought I would.

I have to admit, while familiar with the Shakespeare‘s Macbeth, I haven‘t read it (I know. Shame on me!) so I didn‘t always know what was to come, which was probably a bonus.

But I have to wonder if all those tragic decisions that make a Shakespeare play what it is, just don‘t translate well to a modern times portrayal.

Retelling of Macbeth in heroin-ravaged smalltown Scotland. Lady Macbeth owns a casino; Macbeth is an knife throwing orphan who grows up to lead the vice squad in the police department. I love this play and I love scandicrime, so this is a clear winner.

I just thought this whole reimagining was heavy handed and sloppy. What makes Macbeth a great story is the finesse. I felt no sympathy for this Macbeth. Nothing more than a megalomaniac with no depth. #NewIn2018 #booked2018 #getreading2018 #26of36 #audiobook

Cinfhen That‘s a shame!! Maybe Nesbø wasn‘t the right author to retell Shakespeare !?! ?‍♀️ 12mo
Literaturenut His prose were actually quite lovely and well written. I think if he had spent more time to develop the depth of story it would have been better. I would think retelling a Classic is always in ways more difficult because you want to make it your own, but it still needs to be recognizable. 12mo

Grim, oppressive and ultra-violent - not so different from the original then! And I loved it!! Set in modern day Scandinavia, it could just as easily be in any northern town in Scotland (except for the ones that aren‘t poverty stricken, obviously 😉). The names of the towns in the original are the names of casinos in this retelling, one of which (and the most exclusive) is owned by Lady, Macbeth‘s girlfriend. This is so good. Highly recommended!!

3.5 stars. I liked it. Nesbo did well with the characters and the plot, and mostly stayed true to the story about the Scot we love to hate. I feel that he could have delved deeper into Lady Macbeth's character - she is so fascinating. But a good job all round.

I finally finished this! It is a very long audiobook and I wasn't dying to listen to it so it sat for a while after I got about 75% finished. I think people either love or hate this modern retelling of Shakespeare's play. To me the draw was seeing how the modernization would work, and it was clever to me. Lady Macbeth as a casino owner was the best part. The modern setting made the violence seem more intense. Good narrator.

Tashreads This is my next audiobook. Hoping it will impress more than the others in the Hogarth Shakespeare series 2y

⭐⭐⭐

A modern retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth. It was a very slow build and not overly original. Macbeth is head of SWAT. Duncan, the police chief commissioner, is his boss and Lady runs the Casino and convinces Macbeth to "kill the king". Not love for me because it was painfully SLOW.

Just under two hours into #13inThree and Macbeth is finished! Reviews are mixed, but I LOVED it. It was dark, sad, twisty, and compelling. Nesbo is never a quick read, and his Nordic Noir writing style works beautifully with the original Shakespeare plot and characters. He did a fantastic job updating my favorite play. That ending! Glorious.

Great updated version of a classic. Took a few chapters to get into and sort out who all the characters were both within this book and the original, but with each chapter I became more engrossed in the story and really loved this version. It''s true to Shakespeare, while being a great Nesbo novel!
