5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare back to his roots, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was surprised to begin reading with John Shakespeare at the start of his career, but after the demise of Topcliff in the previous book, perhaps there was nowhere to go but back? However, a great read, lots of action, lovely settings and the usual wonderful characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the re emergence of the dastardly Topcliff and the lovely colourful Ruby. Looking forward to more early adventures.

Great, interesting and good read. Lacked a little of the excitement of the previous plots. But still love the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars sacred treason, 5 Aug. 2011
There seems to be a deluge of historical detective fiction at the moment, i've been wading through quite a bit of it of late. 'Sacred Treason' is quite good. Forrester's background descriptions are fabulous, lots of detail on places and environment, which gives a clear visual image and enhances the mood. However, this is also its downfall. The protagonist, Clarenceux and his fellow traveller Rebecca are well rounded characters with much to say and do make us feel their emotions and tense relationship. But overall the plot is thin, there are too many travel descriptions, too many comings and goings without much reason, apart from describing landscape. I was a little disappointed with the ending which left me wondering why we'd travelled so far? If you're into historical background this is enjoyable, but if you like the thrill of the action, the underhand dealings of the Elizabethan court and era, Rory Clements' John Shakespeare, Parris' Bruno and of course Sansom's Shardlake are far more interseting and exciting, with equal background detail. 'Sacred Treason' is rather slow, lacks a real point, a little too wandering and never quites get there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sansom the great!!, 30 July 2011
I have read all of the Shardlake series and can't wait for more. A brilliant read, easy, intelligent and full of tension and twists. fantastic. You need to read the rest of the series as this is the last one, but you'll find them most enjoyable.

1.0 out of 5 stars what a waste., 29 Nov. 2010
I ordered this thinking it was a copy of the scripts, as there is nothing to explain the contents, but was very upset to find it has no information apart from a brief plot summary and a brief review of each play. I could have found this info anywhere. Beware! this is not a copy of the scripts, but an absoute waste of time and money!

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant for small exam groups, 6 May 2009
This is a brilliant play for 3 girls- GCSE/GCE. it's also a lot of fun to work with. The second half with the invisible character of Dominic is challenging, but very useful for exam or exploration work. you don't have to use the Irish element/accent it works with any, but it sounds fantastic if you're able or brave enough. The single set and short running time are also a god send. students love the killing scene with the doll it adds a bit of excitement! well worth having on your shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars exam read, 6 May 2009
This review is from: Woyzeck (Modern Plays) (Paperback)
this is a quick read, but with a twist, you never quite know which order the scenes should be in. lots of ideas and styles for studying with students, you can have great fun with this. lots of people warned me that it was difficult, maybe i'm missing something, i found it easy to read and looking for answers. get hold of the DVD it works well with the text.
