    KING LEAR? TESSA GRATON?

    THE AUTHOR OF ONE OF MY FAVOURITE MYTHOLOGY RETELLINGS IS WRITING A RETELLING OF ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SHAKESPEAREAN PLAYS? end me now

  • Justine

    I enjoyed this very much. The writing has a stylized feel, with each point of view chapter feeling in a way like a self-contained scene. It is a retelling based on King Lear, but while it's been so long that can't recall much detail from the original play, my favourite retelling is the film Ran, by Akira Kurosawa.

    This book is slightly less dramatic than Ran, but still very engaging. It is very much the story of the daughters rather than the King, and particularly Elia, the youngest, but I loved

    4.5 (maybe it’s an actual 5, I just struggle so much with star ratings right now)

    This book isn’t for everyone (which can be said for all books, but it does apply to this more than others, imho). It’s a political, atmospheric, fantasy retelling of King Lear. It’s slow and actually kind of hard to get through: you can’t read it in one sitting, trust me on that. So yes, this book takes time. And the characters are not exactly what I would call likable people (then again who is likable in King Lear?

    I love KING LEAR.

    When I took Shakespeare in college, I wrote my research paper on Edmund. I argued that he had little chance to be anything but a villain given the thoughtless mistreatment of bastards at that time. He wore his illegitimacy like a scarlet letter, and even more than Hester Prynn’s, his crime was not a crime.

    So of course when I heard that Tessa Gratton’s THE QUEENS OF INNIS LEAR was a fantastical retelling of KING LEAR, I leapt at the opportunity to read i

    It begins when a wizard cleaves an island from the mainland, in response to the king destroying her temple.


    What begins?

    Just that easily, I was hooked.

    The spectacular prologue was immediately followed by an introduction to a character and an island that were so vivid, so magical, that I wanted to jump up and down shrieking, “I want to talk to trees! I want to see a bird’s dreams! I want the wind to be my messenger!”

    I want to live in this world!

    Characters that I’d thought I knew and knew well became infinitely more complex. More damaged. More covetous. Anger became fury. Thoughtless remained thoughtful but became loyal and well-intentioned as well. Good became naive, became heartbroken, became a strong and worthy queen.

    And a story I already loved became something so much more.

    Did it hurt?

    Absolutely.

    Tragedy is tragedy, and Shakespearen tragedy . . . WHUH.

    But Gratton so expertly crafted this expanded version that despite the respect she clearly has for this tale and its creator, she was able to give us a less bleak future. Those left standing are worthy of their survival. They’ve learned from Lear’s mistakes and don’t repeat them. They are poised to let their island heal their wounds, healing their island in return.

    THE QUEENS OF INNIS LEAR more than a tragedy. It’s life lessons. How shutting yourself off from the ones who love you can be the root of your own destruction. It’s about recognizing when someone can be saved and when they can’t. It’s hard choices and unbridled hope.

    It’s magic.

    A retelling of King Lear in the thread of Game of Thrones?



    Gimme.

    The Queens of Innis Lear is a fantasy retelling of King Lear.

    It begins with the birth of an island, with one of the most breathtaking prologues I've read in a while. It draws you in, and you'll need that, because this may be a well-written story with multilayered characters and intricate political dynamics, but it's also a very slow tome of almost 600 pages and the retelling of a tragedy.

    I decided to read this because I loved Tessa Gratton's Before She Was Bloody story in the anthology Three Sid

    3.5 stars

    RTC but this is ridiculously, ridiculously hard to solidly review because I am torn.

    Is it a good book? Yes.

    It’s got gorgeous worldbuilding, star prophecies, Shakespeare inspiration, the most gorgeous prose ever, strong female leads

    But it is long. SO incredibly long. And this makes it exhausting to get through.

    If this was cut down and paced quicker, this could’ve easily been a 5 Star for me.
