Moving between 21st-century America and 17th-century England, The Book of Air and Shadows is a modern thriller that brilliantly re-creates William Shakespeare's life at the turn of the 17th century and combines an ingenious and intricately layered plot with a devastating portrait of a contemporary man on the brink of self-discovery...or self-destruction.
"A wild story....Engrossing." ( The Washington Post)
"[With] intelligence and engaging style...Gruber raises the thriller stakes." ( Booklist)

Not your average story.
This book is not for everyone. It's 3 stories in 1.
Stephen Hoye (Narrator) has a sardonical style that would turn many off. I happen to like him in this book but have found him tedious in others.
The author has an eye for detail. Instead of going in a direct line. He relays the history background and the interaction of the players.
I wouldn't call it an action book at least so far. The first 3rd is background on the characters and interaction.
I'm 1/3 of the way through this book and just had to review it because it's new, no other reviews and just so good.
So if you are the action type looking for a action book this isn't for you. If you are a little more literary and like a book that goes into details of the characters lives viewpoints and motivation. Slowly building a story You'll eat this up like a child with a plate of chocolate pudding!!
