I’m going to try to write about the books I’ve actually finished reading. I found this book at the library. It was put out on the shelf where they have the contemporary adult fiction. Here’s the NY Times article on it:
I don’t get a chance to read much of the New York Times these days. It is among some quick book summaries.
Having read Othello closely a long while ago, I still remember the main characters and among them Iago.
I love books like these that take a character and answer the question: why? The book itself is very open and brutal and told mainly from a teenager’s point-of-view, yet in a very adult manner. It is well written and engrossing. Someone did write in the book that there were a few small factual errors (I love reading these notes people leave, who is the closet Renaissance scholar among us?)
It is a reminder that humanity has not changed much. That’s all I’m saying.
