The Playmaker, by J.B. Cheany, was a very well written book. I think it deserves four stars. After every chapter up to the middle of the book, I immediately had to stop to review what I had just read. To me the beginning was a little hard to interpret, so I couldn't say it was the best start for a book. The dialogue was also hard to understand because of the old English style. But this book was exciting in some parts, like when Richard met Starling and when the judges determined him worthy to be an actor. But when I started to read the middle of the book, it really grabbed me. Everything sped up to a pace I personally like. It became very exciting and fast paced as more mysteries and plans were unraveled. It became easier to read, though that could be because I became more willing to pick up the book. And at the end of each chapter I stopped not to review everything I read, but to think about everything exciting that happened in the chapter and how it may relate to the future of the story. All in all The Playmaker by J.B. Cheany is what I would call a four star book.
