Mini Review: Dunbar

I picked up Dunbar on Blogging for Books, because I love this whole series. I’m thrilled to say that I also loved this modern retelling of King Lear. It’s one of my favorite Shakespeare plays, and this is also one of my favorites in the Hogarth Shakespeare series. I had high expectations for this book, and it met every one of them. While I encourage everyone to read all the books in the Hogarth series, Dunbar should be at the top of the list.
