I quite enjoyed Young’s writing style. The easy forward flow of words allows you to focus on the story while at the same time highlighting certain aspects of it. Young writes naturally, and words things in a way that is just a little off centre, really keeping your attention. His descriptions made the story pop. I could easily picture myself sitting in the boardroom with the characters, or in any of the other aspects of the story. I loved the parallels that can be easily drawn to Shakespeare. For me it gave an extra element to immerse myself in. At the same time, this story would be equally as enjoyable without any background knowledge of Shakespearean literature.

Getting to know the characters in this novel was actually quite fun. Young doesn’t simply develop characters individually, but also based on their relationships to one another. This multifaceted character development brings the entire story into vivid clarity. The dialogue has a great flow to it, and sounds the way that people actually talk.

Overall, this was a fantastic novel. I found it both original and entertaining. I can’t wait to see what Young comes up with next!
