Description

Only in the world of the theater can Nat Field find an escape from the tragedies that have shadowed his young life. So he is thrilled when he is chosen to join an American drama troupe traveling to London to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream in a new replica of the famous Globe theater.

Shortly after arriving in England, Nat goes to bed ill and awakens transported back in time 400 years - to another London, and another production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Amid the bustle and excitement of an Elizabethan theatrical production, Nat finds the warm, nurturing father figure missing from his life - in none other than William Shakespeare himself. Does Nat have to remain trapped in the past forever, or give up the friendship he's so longed for in his own time?

If you're reading this, go read this book instead

Unfortunately, the summary says this book is for grades 4 -- 7. It's been many years since I was that young, and I love the book. If you've ever lost someone you loved, and struggled with the loss, read King of Shadows. Don't let the Shakespearean play throw you: that's only the framework for the real story. Jim Dale's southern accent isn't his best, but hey, it's Jim Dale, so it doesn't matter. I've read almost all of Susan Cooper's books and enjoyed them all, but I like this best.

I initially chose this book because it was read by Jim Dale. He absolutely brought the book to life! He took a wonderful story, and elevated it! I can't wait to listen to it again!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I enjoy listening to audio books while driving to and from work. I actually sat in from of my home for half an hour, because I couldn't turn if off.

Odd choice of reader

This novel is mostly narrated by an American teenager from the South. It's therefore strange to give the job of reading it to Jim Dale, an elderly Englishman. Dale is normally a great reader, but listening to his extremely unconvincing Southern accent for 5 hours was cruel and unusual punishment. The story itself is pleasant enough, but I never stopped being irritated.

Time travel and The Bard

I love this book. The story has fun twists and turns, and it's read by Jim Dale! One of the best voice actors ever! I highly recommend this book! Aimed at abouti middle school level but as an adult I enjoy it so much! Have fun!
