Bill Bryson – Shakespeare | Review

Title: Shakespeare

Author: Bill Bryson

Type: Non-Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 200

Rating: 4/5

You’ve got to have a certain amount of respect for a book which openly states that we don’t actually know much about Shakespeare and so that’s the reason why it’s so short. The spacing is set at 1.5, the dimensions are pretty small and it still only comes to a couple hundred pages.

Bryson has a way with words that guarantees that anything that he’s writing will be interesting, and reading about Shakespeare is interesting enough in and of itself. The result is a fascinating little read, even though there’s a whole heap of stuff that we don’t know. We’re not even sure what Shakespeare looked like, because the source image that most people think of might not actually have been a painting of him, while the others were all made after his death.

I learned a few new bits and bobs, but nothing that really blew my mind. With that said, that’s not why I picked up this book in the first place, and I’d say that it did what I wanted it to do. It entertained me, so good times.
