Dy's Take

Lady Macbeth: A Novel by Susan Fraser King

Filed under: Historical Fiction — Dy @ 21:32

( 51 )

This took a little getting into, and dragged a bit in spots, but overall was a very enjoyable read.  I being an ignorant American girl, had no idea that Macbeth was anything other than a creation of Shakespeare. Learning a bit more, even in a fictional context, about the real Macbeth, who did indeed become King of the Scots* was fascinating.

*According to the book the monarch or Scotland is referred to as king or queen of the Scots, the people, not Scotland, the land.

A warning, though.  If you don’t already enjoy historical fiction, particularly that relating to the history of the Bristish Isles, then you probably won’t get much of this book.

7/10
