Interred with Their Bones
Interred with Their Bones | Jennifer Lee Carrell
12 posts | 28 read | 20 to read
A feverishly paced action adventure (The New York Times) about a long-lost Shakespeare work and a killer who reenacts the Bards most bloody murders Jennifer Lee Carrells highly acclaimed debut novel is a brilliant, breathlessly paced literary adventure. The action begins on the eve of the Globes production of Hamlet when Shakespeare scholar and theater director Kate Stanleys eccentric mentor Rosalind Howard gives her a mysterious box, claiming to have made a groundbreaking discovery. Before she can reveal it to Kate, the Globe is burned to the ground and Roz is found deadmurdered precisely in the manner of Hamlets father. Inside the box Kate finds the first piece in a Shakespearean puzzle, setting her on a deadly, highstakes treasure hunt. From London to Harvard to the American West, Kate races to evade a killer and solve a tantalizing string of clues hidden in the words of Shakespeare, which may unlock one of historys greatest secrets.

Loved the connection to Shakespeare's MACBETH and the setting in Scotland. Fast-paced and scholarly. I might have to read again and take notes--LOTS to research!

Favorite Quote: “If [magic] exists, it doesn't matter a toss whether you believe in it or not.“

I need something in between pick and so-so for this one. It was fun and intriguing, and I will even likely read it again since it was gifted to me and I found all the Shakespeare scholarship fascinating, but it fell short of being great. I think I just had too hard of a time understanding some characters‘ background and motivation and it felt like the author was trying too hard to insert action and adventure that at times didn‘t make sense.

What more could anyone want than a story about a serial killer and Shakespeare? Super cool concept, and I loved the amount of detail and history the author put into this story! I figured out the murderer early on but still very much enjoyed it. ☀️☀️☀️🌤 #readharderchallenge #bookaboutbooks @bookriot #litsychallenge #bookaboutmusic/theatre @jessica #readingforfunmmd #bookaboutbooks
