If you're looking for an easy overview of a Shakespeare text, want to see it in a more modern form, or just love the visual style of Manga, this is a great book for a fast and satisfying read using Bill's own words with fab pictures, in an accessible and direct format. Also, excellent for revision for students of all levels, or if you're just curious about either Manga as a genre or Shakespeare.

Ideal for both the student of Shakespeare's play and a seasoned Manga fan, the text is, necessarily, abridged, but the salient points and "flavour" of the speeches remain. Set in post-apocalyptic Japan, the main protagonists are depicted as warlords in a ravaged world. Because of this theme, presenting the Witches as snake-demons and Macduff as a four-armed, gigantic mutated warrior, seems perfectly appropriate- and also neatly explains why Macduff could never have been born naturally!

The text is clear, the storyline easy to follow ( the chief characters are presented in colour, with a brief description of each, at the front of the book, which gives a handy reference guide to the relationships between them) and, unlike "traditional" Manga , the book reads left-to-right, in the Western style, which is less daunting than a more "purist" manga presentation.

The drawing is excellent, the setting interesting, which should encourage the reader to enjoy the entire play as an exciting and slightly gruesome adventure story. The memorable depiction of the characters and setting should remain in the mind's eye for a long time.

I consider this a useful teaching aid as supporting, while not replacing the original text . It also stands alone as an enjoyable graphic novel.

I love Manga and I love Shakespeare, so this seemed a must. I wasn't disappointed and I now own Othello and Hamlet. I will eventually get the whole set. Art wotk is great, stories are true to original but with imaginative Interpretations.
