The Classics Club Spin # 21 – result

The Tempest cover

The result of the Classics Club Spin number 21 is number 5 and for me that means I’ll be reading Shakespeare’s The Tempest. It’s a play which seems to have been in the news a lot over the last year or so for various reasons.

By coincidence I had begun to read it this morning anyway, it isn’t going to take me long so I’ll be reading a few more from my Classics Club list by the 31st of October which is when I’ll have my review of The Tempest on here. Have you already read it and if so, what did you think of it?

  1. I know very little about this Shakespeare play. With those Rackham illustrations it should be an illuminating read!

    (I got Jekyll & Hyde. Suitably gothic for the season and short!)

    • Sandra,

      I enjoyed Jekyll and Hyde. I love Rackham’s illustrations and have quite a few books with them in and his Peter Pan prints are framed on our staircase walls.

  2. I didn’t include any Shakespeare on my Classics Club list, but I wish I had as there are so many of his plays I would like to read or re-read. I have read this one and enjoyed it, although I didn’t love it.

    • Helen,
      I’m the same, I feel I should read far more Shakespeare as when I do I find so many bits which are well known but I didn’t even realise were written by him.
