Review: My Name Is Will : A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare

My Name Is Will by Jess Winfield: Book Cover
My Name Is Will : A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare

I don't know what is wrong. I have tried listening to this book. I have tried reading this book and I just cannot get into it. I've even tried different times of the day and night. I do wish I could tell you what is wrong but I can't. I wish I could give this first time author some constructive critism, but I can't.

Maybe it is just not my cup of tea. Or maybe I am stuck in William's time and not ready for Will's time. (Also, though I was in college in the 60's, I was a real square... not tuned in at all!)

So far, I am this is the only negative review I have read. So go find a good excerpt, read it, and then decide for yourself. And, Jess, if you see this, I'm sorry I can't give you more.

You know what, I think that as you rightly said, this book might simply not be your cup-o-tea. From the looks of it you have given it enough tries.

It sure would be nice if we loved every single book we pick up. Sometimes it is just not the right partnership!
