Book Review: Macbeth by William Shakespeare

MacbethMacbeth by William Shakespeare
Let's just skip right to my summary because all the Goodreads "synopses" are not legit at all..
Liana's Summary: Macbeth, originally thane of Glamis, has been promoted to thane of Cawdor. Three witches told him a prophecy that said he would eventually become king-- this troubles him. He actually becomes king, and that is the start to his ultimate downfall.

Rate(1-10): 6.5

Super short and sweet review:

Oh, assigned reading. How I hate you.

But it's not too low of a rating because I actually enjoyed reading this story and laughing at Shakespeare's comical insertions. ("What, you egg?" I. fucking. died.) I really enjoyed the amount of theme and irony there was, and how absolute psycho Lady Macbeth was.

When reading Shakespeare, just remember. Sparknotes is your friend. I am so glad Sparknotes is my friend. That is pretty much it, I suppose..
