Macbeth, the Comedy.
on 9 February 2015
Dreadful beyond words!! The story (if there is one!) jumps from one ridiculous situation to another without pausing for breath. Far from making this a fast paced read it just becomes utterly confusing. By the beginning of Chapter 3 the main protagonist has already left London, arrived in Edinburgh, trekked another 50 miles to the Castle, wandered up a hill, found a dagger and a dead body (Which miraculously disappears) and so on and so on!!
Liberally littered with dreadful similes and metaphors that any decent proof reader would have taken out, it;s difiicult to find any plot.
The writing is appalling. * Gaunt as a figure of famine"," like the nearly human sound of the wind", Like an illfitting shadow", "I whirled to the window"!!!!! And all that and more in 1 chapter.
The Shakespeare Curse , with Macbeth, the occult, secret codes, bit of love interest might have been a recipe for success but unfortunately in the hands of J L Carrell, it's a confusing, badly written farce.
