They tell him that he will ascend in rank, and ultimately become king of Scotland. As the witches' visions begin to become true, Macbeth yearns for the throne. Yet Macbeth's ambition is nothing compared to his wife, who hatches a plan to murder King Duncan and hasten her husband's rise to power. The body count continues to rise as Macbeth destroys everyone and everything around him in an increasingly desperate bid for the glory of the throne.

Never read this at school, which is why I decided to read it. Glad I did, I found it a very strange, peculiar book with a very sad ending.
A true classic 🖤
Always wanted to read Macbeth. Ingeniously written and laid out! Shakespeare at his very best - an intriguing story about royals, treachery and, of course, murder. Something interesting as a side note - I’ve seen the three witches’ song/spell chanting in other places as well, it’s quite popular around Hallowe’en time.
I read this story twice now it’s very entertaining it’s a very brilliant story to read It’s also very fun to read it! In some parts it’s very intense which is good! I recommend it to anyone reading this!
