Macbeth | Jo Nesbo

⭐⭐⭐

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.

Taking a bit of a punt with this book as I have never yet managed to finish a ‘Scandinavian noir‘ novel, but I am a huge fan of the Hogarth Shakespeare project. And the coffee is Elysian! #jonesbo #macbeth #hogarthshakespeare #cotebrasserie #shakespeare #cotebrasseriemuswellhill #muswellhill #n10 #muswellhillbilly #book #books #currentlyreading #booksandcoffee #coffeeandbooks #bookstagram #caffeine #caffeineaddict #fiction #crimefiction

Really caught up in this marvellous retelling of Othello, set in a Washington elementary school in 1974. Excellently written, and utterly engrossing. #tracychevalier #newboy #williamshakespeare #othello #washingtondc #1974 #literature #hogarthshakespeare #shakespeare #politics #racism #antisemitism #prejudice #workdbookday2018

I absolutely loved Hag-seed, a retelling of The Tempest (and that is a big deal, as it definitely isn't one of my favorite Shakespeare plays!) I want to try other titles in the Hogarth Shakespeare series--any recommendations?#margaretatwood #hogarthshakespeare

This modern day retelling of The Taming of the Shrew was a fun romp! I have never seen the movie with Mr and Mrs Burton, but I must say these costumes have enticed me to look for it! #hogarthshakespeare

UwannaPublishme Yes! Love Anne and this very clever spin of this classic story. The movie is amazing. You must see it! 😊 3y

My second #HogarthShakespeare read- Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood was the other. As a Kate, I have an affinity for Shakespeare's surly Kates. Here, Kate Battista is like a grown up Daria Morgendorffer.

#BookMail brought an ARC of Tracy Chevalier's retelling of "Othello" today! #TBR

ScrappyMags Hogarth Shakespeare! TBR! 3y
BethFishReads Hope it's better than 3y
Dogearedcopy @BethFishReads LOL, Too many "So-So" ratings here on litsy to peak my interest; plus you mentioned that if it wasn't for a freelance gig you would have bailed... And finally, #HogarthShakespeare already did "The Tempest" retelling with Atwood's 'Hag-Seed' ? 3y

Hag-Seed | Margaret Atwood

This is my first Atwood (!!) and it was fantastic. Literally. The play within a play (within at least one other play, if not more) was hugely satisfying, unreal and hyper-real at the same time. I also value the sympathetic look into the mind of a person suffering from extreme depression and delusion. Highly recommended. #hogarthshakespeare #tempest
