Here you go @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage here are my prompts for summer #booked2019.

Had to change my original book to movie (The Goldfinch) as I wasn't getting on with it.

The tagged book is a modern take on Hamlet from the perspective of a #BabyBabe in the womb. A little odd but a good read.

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle | David Wroblewski

Has anyone read The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski? I picked the hardback up at my local used bookstore because it looked interesting. It was only twenty-five cents, so it was either a great deal or a book no one wanted! 😜 No spoilers, please!

bookandcat I LOVE THIS BOOK. My favorite Shakespeare retelling ever. 3mo
BirdsandBelles Ooh! A Shakespeare retelling! It‘s sounding even better! @bookandcat (edited) 3mo
Beatlefan129 I picked it up because I‘m from Wisconsin so I was interested in the setting. I liked the story quite a lot in the end 3mo

It‘s certainly #unusual for a story to be told from the perspective of an unborn child. I‘ve enjoyed reading it. 👍

Eggs I‘m definitely intrigued! Good call! 3mo

I‘m starting this book again for the third time this summer—ironically because, Ruby, my puppy won‘t let me read. Ironic because the book is set in a world of a fictional breed of dog. She‘s not content to be on the floor beside me, or even in my lap. She has to be in my face, kissing me. Now she‘s barking at me through a glass door. Third time‘s the charm. Here we go!

This is a very popular play written in the 1960s. From Shmoop: “The play cleverly re-interprets Shakespeare's Hamlet from the point of view of two minor characters: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The Laurel-and-Hardy-like pair are totally incidental to the action of Hamlet, subject to the whims of the King Claudius – who gets them to betray Hamlet – and then tricked by Hamlet into delivering a letter that condemns them to death.”

CarolynM I haven't read it. I was lukewarm about the film but the stage production I saw subsequently I liked a lot. 3mo
Lcsmcat @CarolynM I agree that like most plays it is better when seen. When well directed it‘s incredibly funny. But an overdone production, not so much. 3mo
OnlyYoo I think I saw a movie of this that was pretty good. I thought that it was pretty funny! 3mo
suvata I guess I will have to check out the play or the movie. The book was a little hard to understand in parts. 3mo
readordierachel The movie is awesome 3mo
