MacBeth the play....
Seen the play performed at Ludlow Castle, seen the film, but this is my first read of the play. Really enjoyed it. There were some overlaps in actors names and speeches, but overall a good read.
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.
Because it is like a script and it is the original I was born in 2008 my teacher said this is a wonderful book and I aggre with her
