I read this for school! It was really good! It was fairly well-written, and had a great plot. There are two more "companion" books for this, called Shakespeare's Scribe and Shakespeare's Spy.

This sounds pretty good actually. I think I'll add it to my list of books. *Opens document*

I really liked that trilogy.  Has anybody actually acted in one of Shakespeare's plays?  It is really neat language and it is easy to understand if you put yourself in a Shakespearian mindframe.

Dear Holmes,

I never have, but I want to. We did an iReady test at school, and I got the high-school level test. I got Shakespeare, and you are right. It is cool language.
