About this deal

The rest face their greatest acting challenge yet: convincing the police, and themselves, that they are blameless. While cleaning the fireplace, Oliver finds a bloody piece of cloth, clearly from Richard’s shirt, and realizes that his death was not the accident they believed it to be. I was able to look past a lot of the cheesy and over the top moments because I really truly wanted to have a good time reading this.

She holds a master's degree in Shakespeare Studies from King's College London and Shakespeare's Globe. I think on its bare bones, there wasn't much substance following the fact after we learn who was killed.She chose the most obvious and popular Shakespeare plays ( Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, etc. it held my interest, but i think this one will resonate more with theater-kids than it did for me, because of how firmly entrenched it is in that world. The prose was a good balance of pretentious and flowery, a hallmark of the genre, but not overly incomprehensible. Echoing such college-set novels as Donna Tartt's The Secret History and mixing in enough Shakespearean theater to qualify readers for the stage, Rio's debut mystery is an engrossing ride. The mystery behind the murder was so predictable, it is a joke that it was dragged out for three acts.

But these are the only (somewhat) positive things I have to say about this book: it's very accessible from the get go, the characters are easy to love (and hate) and the building climax to the inevitable murder is thrilling. On the day of Oliver's release from prison in 2008, Filippa, the only member of the group with whom he has maintained steady contact, comes to pick him up. I expected this to be good - there are so many exceptional reviews, I really hoped it would live up to its hype. Camilo Verela, the fight choreographer, personal trainer, and movement coach of the main characters. All that to say, I would still recommend this book, especially if you are looking for something quick and thrilling to get you out of a reading slump.I never took drama class but if all the peeps there are so unruffled by something as banal as a woman’s insecurities, then sign me the fuck out. This book is also broken up in five acts, but we get to see the events of what really happened that night, a decade ago, and we get to see the ramifications of how that altered everyone’s lives in present day. Nor is it easy to understand the position that James, the person most directly responsible for Richard’s death, takes.

She admits that she was the one who told Colborne to arrest James at the performance, as he confessed to her one day after an intense rehearsal. But when the casting changes, and the secondary characters usurp the stars, the plays spill dangerously over into life, and one of them is found dead.If you've read this book, you know the moment I'm talking about, and you too have probably tried to make your mind accept the (im)possibility of it because as terrible as imagining what happened might be, it was better than living in this current reality of not-fucking-knowing. At first, you're trying to sell him to me as this naive underdog, and all of a sudden he's fucking the hottest chick in school?
