As full of twists and turns as a London alleyway, this entertaining novel is rich in period details, colorful characters, villainy, and drama.

"It's wonderful when school books..."
end up being enjoyable for the whole family. We loved listening to this on audible.com. As a home school mom, I get tired of talking. They get tired of listening to me, I'm certain, too! Here we were able to listen together. Over the course of several rainy afternoons we delighted in the story of Widge and his adventures. We can't wait to read the other two in the trilogy. I only wish they were on audible too. I'm now looking all over audible for school books so I can take a breather and they can enjoy a well-written and well-read story. Loved it!
His voices and the consistency with which he used the various ones. You knew who was talking by the accent he was using early on in the story. I thought that was great. Also, it kept the kids interested (and Dad too, I believe).
"Good book bad reader"
I love the story but the Reader sonds 45 the kid in the story is 14
The Shakespeare Stealer is a wonderful book. I just think that the Album Art makes it seem you are buying the entire series of three books, but only The Shakespeare Stealer is available on audible.
"A bit gory for some"
I didn't like the depth of evil and sinisterism and gore in some of the parts but thought it was good for understanding that era and some of Shakespere's world.
Absolutely boring. The book almost put me to sleep. Bad story line and reader sounded 40 when he was suppose to 14.
