The Queens of Innis Lear Reviews

  • Natalie Monroe

    A retelling of King Lear in the thread of Game of Thrones?

    Gimme.

  • Cindy ✩☽ Savage Queen ♔

    Re-reading this synopsis, this book sounds pretty similar to Three Dark Crowns. Not sure how I feel about that...

    After reading the blurb, all I can say is...

    I am so ready!

    I hold Gratton to a near impossibly high standard so I fell into Innis Lear hopeful but unsure, excited but worried that my expectations were setting me up for disappointment. I should not have worried; this is Gratton, after all. While this is as devastating and intense as the play upon which it is based, there are some differences that make it more tragic and then again, a very tiny bit more hopeful (and I mean tiny).

    I hold Gratton to a near impossibly high standard so I fell into Innis Lear hopeful but unsure, excited but worried that my expectations were setting me up for disappointment. I should not have worried; this is Gratton, after all. While this is as devastating and intense as the play upon which it is based, there are some differences that make it more tragic and then again, a very tiny bit more hopeful (and I mean tiny). The last few pages left me in tears, as one might expect, but I didn't realize how much I was shaking as well. This is one of the bard's most disturbing tragedies for obvious reasons, and fills readers will so much trepidation over the very fabric of family as blood as well as an institution, over trust in love and loyalty, and the idea of self and selfhood, of destiny, of duty - and Gratton captures all of it with just enough difference (oh, Ban - I am shaking my head over this boy as I type) to make it her own. Extraordinarily well done.

    This is possibly the best book any of us will read in 2018.

    King Lear is dead. Long live The Queens of Innis Lear.

    OMG that cover! It is

    the blurb though. Not sure if I want to read it now

    "Feminist multicultural..."

    It's got a SJW smelly smell and I don't like it.

    Please be good

    My favorite Shakespeare inspired work maybe EVER. It's exquisite and breathtaking in every way. The writing is poetic and lyrical, the use of magic is astounding, and THE SISTERS AND BAN...I love them all so much and the Gaela/Regan/Elia relationship and then their relationships with Ban. UGH I could go on forever.
