An okay read,
This review is from: Such Sweet Sorrow (Kindle Edition)
*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and Jenny Trout*
Such Sweet Sorrow tells the story of Romeo, his body ravaged by poison, as he tries to find a way to the land of the dead and restore Juliet to life. He encounters the Prince of Denmark, Hamlet, whose murdered father appeared to him as a ghost and showed him a portal that leads to the land of the dead. They travel through it together and encounter life-threatening danger.
This was an okay book. I liked the mythology but the plot didn't grip me and towards the end I grew bored. I didn't have any particularly strong feelings about the characters as I didn't connect with them.
Unfortunately this book wasn't for me despite being an original retelling.
