    Surprise, a sympathetic Iago. The authors use of the Venetian so

    Surprise, a sympathetic Iago. The authors use of the Venetian society as an excuse for Iago's rise and fall from grace puts this Shakespearian villain in a new light. The power of gossip is  theme that is still relevant today. The easy twisting of Othello's affection is still a bit of a mystery but otherwise I found this book easy to read and enlightening as to Iago's motivation onto his path of revenge.

    Iago as tragic hero? Love it!

    Definitely worth reading! Even in the last pages, and even knowing how it would end, I was still rooting for Iago, who is classically the villain, and still had hope that the ending might come out differently than expected. That is masterful storytelling indeed!

    Really interesting

    What a great turn on the classic! You never think of the villian's side of the story until you read a book like this. The characters really drew me in, and although the ending was bitter, i'd still read it again. It can be a bit boring at times, but overall an interesting read.

    Nicole Galland scores again with a fun, erudite and well researched read. This Shakespeare expert displays great creativity in both character and story development, exploring Venice and the environs at an engaging time. This psychological thriller is a worthwhile read on many levels.
