Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare: Book Review

Good hello, friends! Happy Thursday! I’ve been reading so much contemporary lately, I need more fantasy in my life with queer characters for Pride month! If you have any recommendations let me know!

My Lame Synopsis: To start, siblings are separated, there’s a romance plot devised, and a mistaken in identity. Goodreads

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I was actually pretty disappointed by Twelfth Night. The storyline wasn’t as strong as the other plays I have read so far. I was even more excited to read Twelfth Night because David Tennant was part of the audiobook BBC version, but his performance was kind of flat, to put it bluntly. It was fun seeing the similarities with She’s The Man and I enjoyed the reunion between the brother and sister, but that’s pretty much all I liked.

The women’s roles don’t usually bother me in Shakespeare’s plays, I understand it was a different time when he wrote them. But they bothered me in this one, and how they were treated too. At one point a woman was compared to a dog. Hm no, thanks.

As always, thanks for reading!
