4.0 out of 5 stars Adventure and mythology lovers may enjoy it, 15 Feb 2014
This review is from: Such Sweet Sorrow (Kindle Edition)
I've never liked Romeo and Juliet much. Though I have a huge likeness for romance books, but the story of Romeo and Juliet wasn't really for me. Unlike that though, this one was far better.

The story started off quite well. Romeo's determination to find Juliet was really described very nicely. Although the characters of Romeo and Hamlet felt a little flat at first and was hard to relate to, the storyline covered it up well.

The theme of underworld was really interesting. I always have a fascination for stories dealing with underworld. This story was no exception. Though the starting seemed a bit stagnant to me, once the story moved forward I could easily enjoy everything about it.

I liked the character of Juliet for a change. She seemed strong, unlike the original version of Juliet. And her willingness to make sure Romeo is alright was really good.

Hamlet seemed fine too. I wasn't totally in love him or anything, but then again, I was NEVER in love with the real Hamlet. SO I didn't expect that to happen here either :P

The writing style was pretty good.I was afraid it might be one of those heavy-weighted-dialogue books, but thankfully enough, it wasn't.

One good thing about the plot is that its a mix of everything, romance, bromance :P , adventure, trouble and to top it of- underworld. I was hooked from the later half. Plus, all of it comes wrapped in a really pretty cover, what more can you ask for?
