I just read this book for the first time, then immediately watched all available episodes of the tv series and started the second book. It literally takes my breath away. My life is over. I'm officially taking up residence in 18th century Scotland, and I don't plan on returning to the real world anytime soon.
I'm currently studying this book at school and I couldn't be more pleased, don't get me wrong Shakespeare is amazing and all but can be a bit of drag to study. I'm currently on chapter 7 and sadly for me i was told the ending!! but there is still so much mystery in the book, it is the best 'page-turner' i have ever read, many great quotes and a joy to read.
