. . . one of my favorite scenes in all of Shakespeare.
I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
OMG totally just had a squee moment, haha. This is also my absolute favorite passage of Shakespeare. Love it, and love Kenneth's version :)ReplyDelete
We had to memorize that speech in 10th grade...I think Kenneth did a rather better job of it than I did!ReplyDelete
Kenneth Branagh + Shakespeare = LOVEReplyDelete
Hayley, it's my favorite version of it as well.ReplyDelete
Charlotte, nice. I'd love to have it memorized.
