This is a wonderful book if you are into Shakespeare, as I am. It makes you feel you are really there behind stage, on stage, and in the streets of Shakespeare's London. This is not an action adventure like most of Cornwell's other books, which I suppose explains the disappointment of some of the other reviewers, but to my mind it is one of Cornwell's best.

Cornwell is one of my favourite writers and I've read and enjoyed almost all of his books. However, I had a hard time getting into this book and gave up after 100 pages. I guess I'm not really into plays and the theatre life. I expect people who are, though, might enjoy the story.

Having read all of Bernard's book this was the first one to disappoint me. While I consider him to be in my top five of authors, this story evolved slowly and I did not find it engaging until the second half.
