I listened to this book via's ALC program for educators. I really enjoyed it, though some aspects of it were a little difficult to figure out with the audiobook format--some of the trap room scenes where the girls were talking back and forth to each other were hard to tell which person was speaking because the voices were very similar. This problem is really solved in the physical book, so I'd recommend reading the physical book or doing a hybrid read and listen. I really liked the way the book critiqued the erasure of women's voices and agency in the original Shakespeare stories (which, I don't know that I necessarily realized when I was reading them originally, but this book highlighted in a new way--like commentary, but more interesting because of the format). Would highly recommend to English majors and teachers, (excerpts could be really interesting to supplement Shakespeare in class) or to readers who like Laura Ruby books.
