Schools in England are obligated to so the fantastic work of William Shakespeare and let me tell you now this can be both good and bad. Good factors his work truly is amazing but i cant yet get full appreciation of it and i wish i could, he was just amazingly good at writing and i wish i had talent like his but sometimes you just don't want to sit in a classroom and talk about romeo and Juliet and it can all get a little bit overwhelming to say as much. But i really do love the story of romeo and Juliet it is romantic and although a pretty stupid concept of two teenagers falling in to love as soon as they see each other the actual play is written with such power and strength and i think that is why i am enjoying this topic so much.
Macbeth on the other hand i did not enjoy as much although after you get full meaning of what is being said and how the characters are being projected its great and you feel stupid for not knowing this play just didn't have the spark i look for in something to read and i had to spend countless hours writing about character development when i would of much rather of doing anything but that.
anyway what i was getting at is that i really do love Shakespeare and his work i just wish we could read his work out of school and do something more exciting with lessons as we only have a small portion of our life to be in a school environment.
So most people have read the mortal instruments series by Cassandra Clare (one of the greatest writers) if you haven't where have you been seriously. i picked up this series at Christmas time and was shell shocked for at least a month it was that good. its a series of emotion,war,love, and so many things its hard to put in to words. You will laugh out loud and cry but that part of a great book.One reason for it being such a great book is you could relate with things the characters did, for example how Jace would sacrifice himself for the ones he loves. i was ecstatic to hear the last book was only coming out a few moths after i had read the first five and it felt like years before i got it but i did and read it within a couple of days, i loved how they added new characters in to the last book and there wasn't much loss and i am grateful to Cassandra for that. overall i really loved this series and am deeply saddened that the series is over but and looking forward to the new series and of course the movies and would definitely give it a five star.
