Book 3

I listened to Hag-Seed, a novel written as part of a project to modernize Shakespeare. Her approach to The Tempest is incredibly interesting. Felix, a director wronged by his assistant and depressed by his daughter's death, eventually takes a job teaching literature in a prison. He has the men read, rewrite, and act out a play a year. He uses The Tempest to seek retribution against his enemy and to find peace. It was really engaging. 4⭐️s

I loved this! It's so strange and funny and has so many layers on it. I think you'd get even more out of it if you are familiar with Shakespeare's The Tempest. I especially loved the part where the prisoners learned how to swear as the characters do in Shakespeare's play. Made me laugh outloud. 😂

Also loved to see how the main character Felix matured throughout the book.

Usually I try to read books that have spent longer time on my bookshelf but since I'm travelling now and my earlier book finished yesterday I need to go with a bit more resent one. I got this earlier this week. It sounds so interesting! 😍

Martta @Dilara It's one of my favourites as well! 😊 2mo
Martta @CuriousG Good to know! I thought that the back cover text sounded really interesting. 😁 2mo
CuriousG I read Hag-Seed right after I saw a brilliant performance of The Tempest at the Stratford Festival (Canada, not England) and that may have contributed, but I think overall it is just a really good read. 2mo

If you think I‘m not going to do this absolutely perfect assignment with my students, you are wrong. 😂 This is a modern re-telling of Shakespeare‘s The Tempest. Felix (Prospero) has been ousted from his job. To get revenge, he becomes a theater teacher at a prison. This was a fun read. I may be biased, though, because I haven‘t found an Atwood I don‘t like. My #DoubleBookSpin for September! I ordered my #bookspin book and it just came in today!

ChaoticMissAdventures In college one of my classes had us read the Tempest and then watch the old Forbidden Planet movie. Still one of my favorite assignments! 4mo
AshleyHoss820 @ChaoticMissAdventures Oh my gosh, I love it! I‘m going to tuck that away for future reference! Thank you! 😄 4mo

I'm bad at titles so when I chose this one for #letterH in the #alphabetgame I was thinking of “The Penelopiad“ rather than the actual story about a lecturer in a prisoner education course putting on a performance of “The Tempest , but it is still excellent in its own right.
