This novel is Shakespeare’s Worst Nightmare. It takes two of the Bard’s most famous plays, Hamlet and Othello, and recasts them with fantasy characters in a place called Gundarland. Hamlet is a dwarf and Othello is a dark elf. Iago and his wife, Emilia, are trolls. If that isn’t bad enough, these two tragedies are now comedies with Falstaff, Shakespeare’s most popular rogue, thrown in as a bonus. Both Hamlet and Othello are plagued by the scheming Falstaff, a human.
Not familiar with Shakespeare? No problem. You’ll still enjoy this romp.
One Reviewer Notes
“…This is an hysterical book that was deeply engaging and fun to read from cover to cover (pixel to pixel as it were). Quence really shows a love and a passion of Shakespeare’s work in this well written and brilliant conceived comedy. I love how he draws the elements of Othello and Hamlet together and keeps you laughing through it all. I’m a big fan of the fantasy genre so this was a real treat for me…”
