Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Macbeth

I only ever watched a minimalist performance of this play. The whole time, I was really confused about where everyone was and who everyone was. Reading it made the play make a lot more sense.

Rating: [2/5]

Reading Challenge: A book you were supposed to read in high school but didn’t

Summary: After a tense battle, Macbeth meets three witches, one of whom predicts he will become Thane of Cawdor and one who predicts he will become King of Scotland. He doesn’t believe them at first, but after he is announced as the new Thane of Cawdor, he and his wife concoct a plan to murder the current king.

Likes: I really liked all the scene with the Weird Sisters. They’re really amusing and were only in the play because King James thought witches were cool.

Dislikes: I personally had a difficult time following the story and getting into it.

TL;DR: I know this is one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays but I’d probably pick up Hamlet if you’re wanting to read a classic where everyone goes crazy and kills each other.
