Susan Hill – The Man in the Picture | Review

Title: The Man in the Picture

Author: Susan Hill

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 150

Rating: 3.5/5

I found it pretty difficult to focus on this one while I was reading it, but I don’t think that’s Susan Hill’s fault. I was just going through some stuff in life, and they stopped me from giving it my full attention, at least until about half way through, when I did get a little hooked and started enjoying it.

This is basically a quirky little historical fiction/horror hybrid which has all the hallmarks of a classic Hill tale. It was good but not great, quite a cool little novella, and a little bit of inspiration for me on a project that I’m currently working on. All of that should have spelled a cracking little read, but I suppose it wasn’t really for me. Oh well!

William Shakespeare – The Comedy of Errors | Review

Title: The Comedy of Errors

Author: William Shakespeare

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 84

Rating: 3.5/5

This is one of Shakespeare’s earlier plays, and it’s also one of his shortest. As you can tell from the title, it’s a comedy, a tale of mistaken identity which follows what happens when two sets of identical twins end up in the same town. It was surprisingly difficult to follow, and I reckon it’d be even harder when watching it performed.
