Bernard Cornwell takes us into the world of Shakespearean England – very good

Fools and Mortals - Bernard Cornwell

 

This work of fiction introduces us to Elizabethan England's involvement with the professional theatre and Shakespeare's ascension. It revolves around Richard Shakespeare, William's brother, and his role in the players, the intrigue that he encounters, both treacherous and romantic.

It is well-written, engaging and fun – a romp in the Sharpe style. I am sure that Cornwell's fans will enjoy this as much as any other of his novels (although this is my first!)

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
