Shakespeare’s work features some of the most memorable stories and characters ever created, yet for too many curious readers the combination of ultra-dense dialogue and unfamiliar historical settings make tackling the Bard’s work something between a tedious chore and a confusing mess of bird-bolts and quondam carpet-mongers.
While it’s nearly impossible to replicate or improve on these works, it is (thanks to their timeless nature) possible to make them more accessible to a wider audience.
In this retelling of William Shakespeare’s classic play, join C.E. Wilson as she breathes new life into Much Ado About Nothing, the first book in her Young Adult series Shakespeare for Everyone Else.

This book was given to me by the author for a "Read-to-Review". This hasn't affected my review in any way. Much Ado About Nothing is the first book of the Shakespeare for Everyone Else series. I'm not a Shakespeare fan, or any classics, really. I prefer to read modern retellings or watch the movie/TV series/web series. So, this is a perfect book for me. I won't be comparing this version to the original story, because I've never read Shakespeare's original one. Instead, I will be reviewing this book solely on what I've read. Two words to describe this book? High school. High school at it's finest. All the gossips and schemes are spot on. Everything about this book is relatable to the teens in this generation. It was fast paced and direct to the point, which I loved. Although, it was too short for my liking, I found myself wanting more. There were characters with full of personality (Bennett and Beatriz) while others lacked. I had to differentiate Sola between Meagan, at times. I had fun reading this version. Looking forward to the second book of the series: Othello.
