Read full description of the books:
Completely different to Shakespeare's rendition, and a very amenable read all round. Macbeth is a sympathetic character here, and tragic by the end, which follows one of the elements of the prophecy in Shakespeare's rendition with a more realistic explanation that sounded plausible to me.
This was definitely much better than Dunnett's awfully sluggish novel, too. Macbeth is a good king, and I liked his relationship with the two most important people in his life: his wife Gruoch (who's nothing like the infamous Lady Macbeth), and his half-brother Thorfinn Sigurdsson, a loud and boisterous but loyal Viking earl. The history of the time is presented in a way that doesn't overwhelm the reader, and it never gets slow because you get just the amount of information you need.
Overall, it's been a nice three and a half stars read. I only wish I were more interested in the time period and place as to have enjoyed this even more.
