A Midsummer Night’s Challenge Wrap-up

So here’s the Midsummer Challenge Wrap-up!

Becky did an amazing job reviewing the manga adaptation of A Midsummer NIght’s Dream. A link to it can be found on her challenge wrap-up post. She included some images so you can get a real good look at what the adaptation has to offer.

Jessi read and reviewed Pratchett’s Lords and Ladies. Pratchett is one of my all-time favorite authors, and Jessi did a stellar job of passing on her impression of his novel. She also posted a hilarious Animaniacs episode focussing on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I had no idea they had done one! Thank you Jessi!

Francesca outdid any expectations by reading Puck of Pook’s Hill in ITALIAN! Kipling is always an interesting read, and The Jungle Book is one of my favorites, but I can’t imagine how he must come across in another langauge.

As for myself, I reviewed three works related to Shakespeare’s classic: The Wizard of London by Mercedes Lackey, Sandman: Dream Country by Neil Gaiman, and Magic Street by Orson Scott Card. Each novel offered a intriguingly unique reflection on Shakespeare’s Dream. While I didn’t get to Faerie Tale by Raymond E Feist, it sits on my bookshelf, waiting to be read.

A HUGE thank you for everyone that participated, whether or not they completed the challenge.
