The start of this book was tedious. I did not care for any of the characters, but that scene of Richard going insane during the play and everyone just straight up hitting him? That was chaos. The romance was unexpectedly sweet by the end of it. I feel for James and Oliver, man.

I feel like someone who has read a lot of Shakespeare would love this book. I haven’t and still enjoyed it

It was good! I enjoyed reading it. It's a modern spin on The Secret History mixed with a bit of Dead Poets Society. I think the characters were written beautifully, too beautiful for the plot they had to endure. Probably will reread in the future.
