I don't normally post book reviews on my blog. That is what goodreads is for. However, I recently read a book that I was so impressed with that I had to share it here.
What is so impressive about this book?
It's a tragedy. I love tragedies, but most publishers shy away from publishing those. I've loved tragedies ever since I read Macbeth and Dr Faustus. Those are, to this day, my favorite tragedies. There is something special about those books, the way they portray the characters' sins and how they slowly have to pay for them. In Dr Faustus, the doctor descends into hell for his sins, while in Macbeth, Lady Macbeth slowly goes insane.
In this new book by this new author, the characters too pay for their sins, in very realistic ways. Read below the read the review.
