Review: William Shakespeare’s Avengers

Rating: ★★★★★

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher (Quirk Books) for promotional purposes. 

This book is pure genius!

I’m a huge MCU fan (I’ve seen every movie and tv show) and I enjoy reading Shakespeare so I knew I needed to read this. I’ve also read the author’s Shakespearean Mean Girls retelling (aptly titled Much Ado About Mean Girls) and loved it. 

This book is all 4 Avengers movies written as Shakespearen plays. It includes stage directions, a list of characters, and even full color illustrations (loved seeing the Avengers dressed Shakespearean style). All the iconic lines and scenes are translated perfectly. 

However, the most genius aspects are the Prologue and the characters’ speech patterns. The Prologue recaps the previous movies (i.e. Iron Man, Captain America) and is written in an acrostic that spells out the movie titles. How smart is that? 

The author gave all the main Avengers characters (20 in total) unique speech patterns. For example, Hawkeye’s dialogue features bird related terms for obvious reasons and Ant-Man’s dialogue contains both a one syllable word and a 4 syllable word since he can shrink small and grow very large. The fact that the author came up with patterns for 20 different characters is insane. Major kudos to him. 

Overall, this is a must read for Marvel and Shakespeare fans! It would make a great gift as well.

Erin’s Questions

What book blew your mind as a kid?

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I fell so in love with this series as a kid. I was beyond obsessed. I particularly loved how The Magician’s Nephew explained everything. That really shook me.

When did you realize you were a bookworm?

When I was very young, in elementary school. Books were always something I loved. I didn’t like to play sports nor did I have any interest in joining Girl Scouts like the other kids in my grade. So books became my thing.

What book(s) have you read that you want to make sure to pass on to your children (or any children in your life)?

All of my American Girl Books. They teach great life lessons and are a fun way to learn history. I learned so much from those books.

What are your favorite types of bookish posts to read on book blogs?

I love to read more controversial posts, like unpopular bookish opinions. Those are so fun to read. I also enjoy tag posts.

If you were in a paranormal or fantasy world/novel would you rather be a vampire, werewolf, shifter, fae, magic user, other, regular old human, etc?

I would love to be a witch. I’ve been really interested in witches lately.

My Questions

  1. What is your unpopular bookish opinion?
  2. Besides books, what else are you passionate about?
  3. How do you organize your bookshelf?
  4. What book is your guilty pleasure?
  5. Would you rather spend the day with your favorite author or your favorite character?
