Review: Shakespeare Ashes- A Novel by Chris DeBrie

Shakespeare Ashes by Chris DeBrie
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 203 pages
Publisher: Infinity Publishing
My Rating: 4/5

The first thing that catches my eye about Shakespeare Ashes is there are no capitols! I thought that was so cool kinda like somebody writing in a diary.

Chris gives us a glimpse into the lives of four characters each with their own agenda and set of issues including racial and sexuality bias, finding love, pain and loss, and just learning to live. The tone and language of the story is raw using everyday talk and slang which enhanced the characters and ultimately made them real.

I enjoyed reading it and found it entertaining following along as each person struggled to basically "find themself".
