An updated version of Othello, with the titular character being a soccer player in South America and his wife being a pop star. Well done. The story neither slavishly follows its original, nor does it stray too far. At times I shuddered and thought: “This is horrific!” before realizing that the original Shakespeare is just as horrific. The ending is slightly different. In some ways it’s happier; in some ways, it’s more disturbing. If you are a Shakespeare fan, I definitely recommend this; I’m not sure how it reads if you haven’t read the Shakespeare. Also, I’m put out at how Peet handled my favorite character (Emilia). I won’t give it away, but . . . seriously?! The original Emilia had an interesting internal narrative and was anything but what she is in this book.

Great story, amazing flow. This author is very talented. Cuts from place to place flawlessly. I loved this book, maybe even more for the author's incrediblly smooth writing than the story. Definitely recommend this.
