Hag-Seed: #bookreview

 

The book  Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood is a reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. If you haven’t read the tempest or haven’t read it in over 15 years like yours truly, there is a two-page description in the back of the book. However, I think that most people will understand without the summary of The Tempest.

The main character, Felix, is a famous theater director who is betrayed by his right hand man, Tony. He exiles himself to a shack in the middle of nowhere. Felix remains a hermit until he sees an opportunity for redemption and revenge by teaching prisoners about literature. I cannot tell you any more except to say that many of the characters in The Tempest mirror characters in Hag-Seed.

 

I read The Tempest when I was in college. I remember that it was one of my favorite stories but I couldn’t remember why. So I was so excited to see that Margaret Atwood wrote a book based on The Tempest.

It only took me two days to finish the book. I only put it down when it was absolutely necessary. Sometimes I would watch Lost on Netflix while reading the book. The show was more like background noise.

The book did remind me why I loved The Tempest. It was like a magical soap opera – as good as any telenovella. It had drama, romance and magic.

I cannot even name one thing that was bad about the book. I think it’s a really great book and everyone should read it.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
