Fun historical fiction. Mystery, drama, and history. Well liked by my son.

This quick and easy first person coming of age (almost?) story was almost fun, a little bit Oliver Twist-ish, and very moralizing. The interesting flip-side to the benign neglect of his orphanage was the recurring theme of right-from-wrong having been whatever filled one's belly, and learning how or why loyalty and not lying were good things. And not stealing. Felt a bit judgmental without trying to look judgmental, and the lucky orphan finds family story felt a bit off to me, for some reason. Maybe just my cynical anger; sorry. ( )

This one has been recommended to me in a few places, so when I saw it at my local library sale, I snatched it up immediately. Other than the leading title, I had no idea what the book was about, so it was a nice little mystery finding out. Plus, my copy has no details on the back page, where summaries and reviews can often give too much away, so that was nice.

I find it interesting that this and the movie Shakespeare in Love were both released in 1998, considering some of the similarities between them, including {SPOILER}. Those of you who know the book and the movie know exactly what I'm talking about. Plus, I like how that particular twist was foreshadowed just enough so that you were gently guided without it being overly obvious, while the reveal at the end comes almost completely out of nowhere (at least, it did for me until I thought about earlier moments).

Being on a Shakespeare kick of late, this one fit right in with my reading, and it's well worth it if you're a fan of Shakespeare, Elizabethan history, or thrilling young adult mystery tales. ( )

A touch of mystery, a touch of drama, and a touch of history. I rather enjoyed this middle-grade novel. With a fair amount of info on Shakespeare's London (largely on places that still exist and thus appear on modern maps), on English dialect, on the lives of orphans and apprentices, and on theatre in Shakespeare's time--this book reads as something a 5th-8th grader would enjoy. My son read it over the summer as an incoming 7th grader (it was a choice on the summer reading list) and he did not enjoy it :( ( )

London, England. Widge is an orphan who’s been apprenticed to a master who trains him to use a special shorthand for transcription of his speeches. Widge is sold to another man and it turns out his duty is to use the shorthand to take down the play of Hamlet as it’s being performed in Globe Theater so his new master’s theater group can perform it and make money. But Widge gets so caught up in the play he misses several lines. On a second attempt, he loses the notebook, and fearing the wrath of his master’s assistant, joins the Globe as an apprentice and soon comes to enjoy and appreciate the theater and the family of fellow actors.

Though I did not care for the company of dead folk, it was easier to make my way through them. I slipped as quietly as I could between headstones and crypts. The earth was soft from the rain and, in places, from being recently turned up. It gave way slightly under my feet, making me fear that if I did not move quickly, I would sink down into the realm of the dead.
