    Thank you to the author for the review copyIn this Young Adult retelling of one of William Shakespeare’s most memorable plays join CE Wilson as she breathes new life into Othello the second book in her series Shakespeare for Everyone ElseWhen Archer decides that he’s had enough of Orion and Devony running what he thought was going to be his school he takes desperate measures to ruin everything Through lies and betrayal deceit and deception Archer will stop at nothing to get what he wants and he doesn’t care whose lives he has to destroy in the processSo a great idea this the author takes Othello brings it bang up to date gives it a thoroughly modern twist but keeps all the heart of the original right on in there A difficult one to pull off but done in a great way hereI’m actually a big fan of Shakespeare’s stories but I do struggle with the language beautiful as it is and I love what the author has done here – given it a whole new twist and still giving the nuances and discussion points that make Shakespeare such a great teaching toolAdd to that its fun A good story well told for the Young Adult audience I imagine that a great thing to do would be to read the original and then read this – in fact it did encourage me to re visit the base material I know that there are in this series available already and coming soon – personally I want to see what happens to Romeo And JulietAll in all a terrific read a great Sunday Afternoon spent and I will definitely read RecommendedHappy Reading Folks

    A clever and uniue Young Adult interpretation of one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies A brilliant suspenseful read Full review will be posted on my blog on the 14th March on my stop on the 'Othello' Blog Tour author who re writes any well known classic to make it relatable to people today has a huge feat ahead of them none so than authors who rewrite Shakespeare CE Wilson took on an incredibly difficult challenge and not only succeeded but also wrote the story so well that the emotions that are difficult to experience whilst reading Othello in script form just flew off the page and I really connected with the characters and storylineBeing a huge Shakespeare fan I have read all of his known plays and Othello is one of the difficult ones to read and understand CE Wilson did a fantastic job in brining Shakespeare’s characters alive in the 21st century and made their motives feelings and struggles seem very much relatable to real problems that young people face today I liked how it was set in a school which made an excellent way for all the characters to know each other and have jealousy issues related to school related dramaI particularly loved how the characters were introduced to us I really felt the connection between Orion Othello and Dev Desdemona and I could see the love that they had for each other so clearly that it broke my heart to see Orion’s descent into jealousy The pacing of the story was also perfectly in line with the way that Shakespeare’s original work was paced Whilst many may feel the ending is very sudden and not much closure is given I loved how CE Wilson tackled this tragic ending as it was very much in line with how Shakespeare’s plays do end very abruptly after the final dramatic scene with less prominent characters speaking the final linesI gave this book 4 stars as there were a few moments in the book where I felt the dialogue was a bit stilted almost as though it were written for a play and not for a novel but in the grand scheme of how well thought out and produced this book was this was really only a little thingThis is one of the best Shakespeare retellings I have read it is incredibly well thought out and was extremely relatable to young adults and I feel that this sort of book would have helped a lot of my class mates when I was studying Shakespeare at schoolA clever uniue and intriguing young adult adaption of Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’4 Stars

    There are some really good parts in this And others I didn't likeI was wondering if Wilson is going to be able pull of this rendition set in a contemporary high school I had many doubts but frankly she somehow did manage to transfer the classic tale Though I do have some issues with it I also was positively impressed At first I was surprised at the name changes Wilson did Well not so much most of the changes mostly Archer I found it an interesting and simultaneously odd choice And I was worried that I would mix up the names and characters with my terrible name memory that would be a given But I didn't Wilson build the characters well enough for me to immediately get who is who in comparison to Shakespeare Though Orion on some level was a bit too good and Archer too mischievous teenager for me at the beginning I think Wilson did nail that part uite wellThe retelling in a high school setting had me super worried but again Wilson did a pretty good job with that So while I do thing that Wilson did a really good re telling when it comes to plot and character building I gotta say it doesn't replace Shakespeare if you struggle with his english get a modern version I think this is great for young people interested in his works Maybe an introductions to the epic english author but it does not carry his weight or even come close to his use of language I guess on some level that was clear And I did honestly factor in this in my rating cause frankly if I didn't I would have rounded it down to 2Stars rather than up to 3 Because my biggest issue was the prose Wilson went from teen slang to stoic dialogs some of this felt very wooden and honestly her writing style missed the beautiful flowing prose that Shakespeare uses And that's my biggest issue set aside the fact that I expected beautiful prose I am not sure how I feel about Wilson's prose in general I can't say if this is because Wilson tried to incorporate some of Shakespeare's dialogues and somewhat failed or if simply her writing style is not to my tasteThe amazing thing though and I have to say Wilson made me realize this this tale of jealousy racism love and betrayal is still extremely current While I was aware that Shakespeare's work is still of great value but Wilson with her work has highlighted how important and current it still isSo it's 25 Stars rounded up to 3

    I RECEIVED A FREE ECOPY OF THIS NOVEL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEWAs someone who tends to suffer from can't read Shakespeare without going huh? every few minutes this retelling of Shakespeare's classic made it much easier for me to understand I thought that it was a very clever and interesting way of retelling a classic by Shakespeare and that's what made it really uniue to me I have always loved Shakespeare and since it's sometimes hard to understand all the complexity and beauty to it this novel helped me to appreciate this classic tale in a new light I really enjoyed reading it and would gladly recommend it to anyone

    35 Stars rounding up to 4This version of Othello is a re telling set in a high school Since Othello is one of the books that I didn't study Confession time I've only studied Merchant of Venice King Lear and Julius Caesar At least these are the three that I feel fairly confident about I can't really make any comments on whether this is a faithful re interpretation So I'll just judge the book on its own merits and throw in a few I wonder if Shakespeare did this too thoughts now and thenOrion Othello is dating Devony Desmonda the mayor's daughter After six months of sneaking around they're finally publicly a couple Ok so they were outed by 'friends' but same effect Unfortunately for Devony Archer Iago hates Orion for not making him Vice President of the student council and so is plotting and manipulating everyone to get his revenge Even unfortunately Archer succeeds and a lot of people die that cannot be a spoiler the entire plot of Othello is on Wikipedia after allJust now I wrote Unfortunately for Devony and no I did not leave out Orion by mistake The character I felt the most sympathy for was Devony and she basically only has a victim role She never does anything to anyone and she's just collateral damageThere is where I feel the book falls short The characters are all very one sided Now from what I can see Shakespeare is supposed to have portrayed Othello very progressively for this day but unfortunately like the portrayal of Sherlock these are characters that cannot triumph The author was probably working with limitations like these not to mention plot constraints so we have Archer Evil genius who can manipulate almost anyone and yet somehow didn't win the election; Orion way too gullible for his own good and with a terrible temper and too obsessive about Devony; Devony Basically good; and so onI think the most wasted part is the portrayal of Orion Like I said Shakespeare is supposed to have been progressive but Orion here is just a one sided figure He's almost unlikable As unlikable as Archer even He does not listen to reason or anyone except Devony And since he goes from all round good guy to crazy murderer in what feels like overnight but is supposed to be just a few short weeks the transition felt a bit unnatural Shakespeare had his audience who probably believed all that about Othello from the start but I have problems believing that Orion is that baseWhere this book does shine however is in its readability The book is easy to read and hard to put down Even though the plot was already decided in advance if the prose was clunky I would still have had a hard time reading itTo end I'll just note that Othello was originally a play That alone means it's visual and auditory while a book is expected to be deeper to reveal hard to do unless characters constantly break into monologue and even that can feel unconvincing So I suppose the limitations of the play has somehow affected the book itself I did find it an interesting read and importantly it piued my interest in the original playDisclaimer I got this book as part of Oops I Read a Book Again blog tours in exchange for a free and honest reviewThis review was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile

    I got Othello Shakespeare for Everyone Else by the publisher in exchange for an honest review Orion and Devony are in love They have been dating all summer but the two of them are still very happy together The only problem is Orion wants to tell everyone including Devony's father about their relationship while she wants to wait Also little do the two know that Archer Orion's treasurer wants to ruin Orion's life to get revenge on him for ruining his chances to go to a good college When I first started this book I wasn't sure that a YA version of Othello would work especially not one that took place in a high school I figured that the Shakespeare comedies would work better in such a setting but this does work better than I thought it would It wasn't a perfect novel but it was pretty enjoyable for the most part I feel like this would be a good thing for students to read at the same time as Othello They could make comparisons between the two books and maybe write short stories of their own I found it interesting what names the CE Wilson picked for the different characters A lot of them were not ones I would have picked for the characters but for the most part they made sense I didn't uite get while the Iago character was named Archer Speaking of Archer he seemed kind of off to me He seemed like a spoiled little brat than like the Iago in the play especially at the beginning of the novel As it went on he did sort of seem like Iago I guess there is no way that he could be exactly like he anyway since CE Wilson is not Shakespeare I wanted the ending to stay the same as the play's from the very beginning of the book I worried that the author would change it and it would ruin the entire novel I'm not going to tell if she did or not but I did feel like the ending was rushed I would have liked if it was handled better than it was Overall I would give this book three our of five stars I am interested in reading books in this series however I want to see how Wilson writes other novels based on other Shakespeare's plays

    I've anticipated from this YA version of Shakespeare Made Easy I've read a bunch of others similar Shakespeare to Modern English books but this is the worst modern rendition of Othello and I haven't read the original play yetThe most powerful thing about Shakespearean plays was its clever use of language and his poetry All of which made Shakespeare still a household name after 400 years Even if you translate Shakespeare to make it understandable you can still retain the essence of the story even if you sacrifice the language usage But this book dumb down Shakespeare for the teenage audience that its almost unbearable There are potential in the first few chapters but then the style regressed badly If you've read a badly translated book this is an example The narration actually switched unevenly between Shakespearean and a teenage pulp fiction One time they acted like teenagers and then the next they sounded like someone from four centuries ago The dialogues changed from a teenage drama to badly translated solilouies Sometimes the short teen speak feels like a substitute to a long complicated dialogue that the meaning flew out of the window Later on the teen dialogues read like the monologues translated by each singular words By the end I'm not sure whether it was a retelling or a teen speak translated OthelloI know that there are a limitation and the difficulties in translating a hard tragedy but I wish the book had maintain its purpose as a retelling instead of a direct translation There were no understandable complexities between the characters that all of them came out one dimensional and the dialogues and plot was very uneven and random that the flow came out unnatural which is sad since those was the definite areas you could expand in a retelling Now I'm worried about Macbeth and Hamlet The ARC was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    Okay so I have to admit I never read Shakespeare’s Othello aaaand I will admit that the thought of reading the original is pret ty intimidating Which is why when I snooped out this retelling I was relieved to find a premise I could actually relate toThis version made the story of Othello so easy for me to understand–it really put the plot into perspective without me having to struggle through the language and references in the originalTransplanting the plot right into a high school setting? Well done I sayBut with that said the dialogue was a little stiff for me It was easy for me to follow along with yes but it didn’t flow like normal conversation would It was stilted enough that I was bothered by itAnd MAN was it full of drama My word there’s so much manipulation and suspicion and deceit I feel like I need to see this performed because I think it would be infinitely amazing to see it played out as was its original purposeAll in all it did the job that I was looking for–I followed the story line and understood everything that was happening but I felt like the dialogue needed to slide along smoother than it did35 stars;

    Having read a previous C E Wilson book i was uite chuffed to spot this on netgalley a retelling of the tragedy of Othello I have no knowledge of the story of Othello so for me it was a great chance to learn the story in a simplistic way Telling the story of Orion who is dating a girl called Devony we follow their tale as Archer puts the seed of doubt in Orions mind causing him to believe Dev has cheated and gets him to seek revenge Throw in a cast of characters with their own personalities and reasons and we have the storyIt is very simplisitc in its nature set in a high school it makes it easier for us modern day readers to relate too I felt to start with that i would be overwhelmed by all the names but i uickly got past that and found i could barely trust anyone I enjoyed this it did a great job of sharing the story on a accessible level There is alot going on and a lot of both deceptive and mischievous characters
