Don’t know if I’m missing a final chapter but lots and lots of loose ends to what was a very enjoyable story
This is one of the weaker attempts at adapting Shakespeare into contemporary fiction. The book works best when it deals directly with Dunbar/Lear and is less interesting dealing with the daughters as they seem to have been given too much coverage here.I am not too sure about the American setting either as I cannot help thinking it only distances the tale rather than further illuminating Shakespeare's text.The lack of Shakespeare's poetic greatness in this particular play is never overcome.A brave attempt never the less.
