I loved how the author added depth to the characters and all of them were well developed and not boring what so ever.
Albia is a fantastic main character and definitely my favorite character in the whole book Seriously, I just wanted to give her a huge hug just because she was just so kick ass Seriously, what was Shakespeare thinking by NOT putting Albia in the original I wished I could ve seen romance between Albia and Fleance, but from what I ve read, the romance was sweet without wanting the reader to gag.
My favorite part about Lady Macbeth s Daughter was that the auth Follow all my reviews at reading Romeo s Ex Rosaline s Story I actively sought retellings of Shakespeare s plays Lady Macbeth s Daughter was one of the first titles I came across and to be honest, it was the one I was most excited about reading I am a huge fan of Macbeth and was overjoyed to find that my local library had the title First of all, being familiar with the play helps with the reading but isn t necessary I thought that was a major achievement because lets face it, not everyone likes Shakespeare More than that, Klein included enough history and characterization to make her telling unique even to those of us who have managed to memorize stanza after stanza of the original The romantic story line didn t seem In Shakespeare s tragedy, the Macbeths are childless, although Lady Macbeth makes reference to having nursed a baby the premise of this book is that Lady Macbeth gave birth to a girl, who was promptly rejected by Macbeth because he desired a son and heir to the throne The girl, Albia, is raised by the three Wyrd sisters and eventually makes her way back into the court, not knowing who her parents are until quite late Specific lines from the play are woven seamlessly into the novel whenever Albia is in the presence of her parents With chapters alternating between the voice of Lady Macbeth and Albia, the plot moves quickly to its tragic conclusion.
The author clearly knows her Shakespeare, and has done her research on medieval Scotland well This is a fantastic book that woul I need this book so badly I love this author and I can t wait A very intriguing side story intwined tale to probably my favorite of all of Shakespeare s tragedies Here Macbeth and his lady come to life in a different way, joined in their daughter, whose wrath makes their pale in comparison I think I especially liked this book mostly for the fact that it does not end in the traditional happily ever after manner that it s predecessor, Ophelia, seemed to That she loves Fleance is true, but I like that she did not feel that she was ready to settle down into the whole lady of the keep role and thus took off to better comprehend who she is.
So very often Shakespeare s tragedies unfold from a single moment or event, and here Klein builds on that precept Macbeth s rejection of his daughter because he had been promised sons sets the events of Look like the innocent flower, But be the serpent under it Lady Macbeth, Scene V 3.
5 out of 5 starsSetting Scotland 1032 1048Coverly Love No it s just a girl, and while she is no doubt lovely, it comes off as a quite plain cover Plot In this imaginative retelling of Shakespeare s play Macbeth, Macbeth and his wife have a secret daughter But since she is not the son he so desires, he disowns her and leaves her to die on the mountainside And die she might have, if not for the compassion of Lady Macbeth s lady in waiting, Rhuven She wisks the baby away and, along with her sisters Helwain and Geillis, raises the baby girl as if she were their own Years later, this baby girl is now known as Albia, and knows nothing about her true heritage Albia has a special gift, however she can see into the future So when This is the second book that I have read by Lisa Klein the first was her re telling of Hamlet through Ophelia s eyes and I wasn t sure if I wanted to read another Shakespeare make over I almost gave this book three stars because i didn t love the story when told by anyone other than Shakespeare.
It seemed a little bit dark and gory, but without the brilliant and beautiful verse that makes Shakespeare s version wonderful I didn t think the writing was that great and at times I just craved to just pull out the real Macbeth I just feel like Shakespeare s writing makes reading such a horrible story worth it But I gave it four stars for a couple of reasons 1 The idea of the book is very intriguing, plausible, and possible It is very possible that the Macbeth s would have a daughter There are specific lines in the play that suggest that they had I haven t read a whole lot of really good historical books recently so I just figured this would be another one to add to that list Boy was I wrong Lady Macbeth s Daughter was probably one of the best historical books I have ever read I started Lady Macbeth s Daughter already knowing the story of Macbeth I don t think it s necessary but it was really fun to compare this new take with the original Surprisingly they don t differ that much, except for the daughter, obviously It was a really believable take on an old tale and I guess I wasn t expecting that Lisa Klein did nothing to take away from Shakespeare s story, she just added onto the brilliance.
I think the one difference between the two stories was the insight into why som Macbeth was never my favorite play by Shakespeare, but, after reading Lady Macbeth s Daughter, I have a newfound respect for the story I really think that Albia made the story for me Lisa Klein wrote Albia so perfectly that I can t believe Shakespeare left her out Albia was an amazing addition to Macbeth s original cast Not only was is a resilient and strong female lead, she shows the perfect blend of characteristics one would expect her to have inherited through her birth parents and her adoptive family I am astounded by how believable Albia s character is It was interesting to see how Albia came to terms with learning that her birth father is the bloodthirsty and tyrannical Macbeth a man that she has never personally met, nor has an desire to Lady Macbeth was must easier to understand and feel sympathy for i
