So fun It is fairly well known that most of Shakespeare s works were not original Rather, he took already existing stories and then retold them in such a way that they have endured through the ages It is only appropriate, then, that another writer has taken Taming of the Shrew and retold the tale for this generation It is not a timeless work like Shakespeare s, but it is a fun and clever interpretation For those of you not quite remembering the plot, Katharina is the eldest daughter of a rich g It is fairly well known that most of Shakespeare s works were not original Rather, he took already existing stories and then retold them in such a way that they have endured through the ages It is only appropriate, then, that another writer has taken Taming of the Shrew and retold the tale for this generation It is not a timeless work like Shakespeare s, but it is a fun and clever interpretation For those of you not quite remembering the plot, Katharina is the eldest daughter of a rich gentleman who is required to be wed before her younger sister, Bianca can marry While Bianca has several callers, Katharina is known far and wide as a The Shrew and revels in her wretchedness Finally, a man named Petruchio presents himself and proceeds to tame Katharina through atypical, often cruel means, eventually resulting in a docile wife and a triumphant suitor In Shults telling, Katharina s current anger is fueled by an attack she endured as a teenager which left her suspended between two worlds, the human and the wolf, but belonging to neither The author weaves this explanation seamlessly into the existing story, and her writing ability carries us through to an ending that suggestsof a marriage among equals, which will resonate better with modern readers I admire her rendition of the main plot However, the lack of subplots leaves the overall work a bit wanting In the play there are several interludes, especially with Bianca s suitors, that help round out the story and give the play some comic relief Not having these tangents in Taming of the Werewolf at best leaves the novel used up too quickly, at worst creates some noticeable holes in the plot The most glaring example of this is how Petruchio recognized Vincentio, the father of one of the callers, on a road Huh Not only had he never met the father in this retelling he never met the son, either If only Shults had spent a littletime further developing the story but alas.Consider the e book for your electronic inventory it s worth the 2.99 but I would skip the paper copy Recommended for Shakespeare fans, romance fans, and anyone who ever wondered why Bianca s hands were tied at the beginning of the play.Contains brief sex scene Reviewed by W.E Zazo Phillips
