Présentation de l'éditeur

Such Sweet Sorrow by Jenny Trout

Never was there a tale of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo...

But true love never dies. Though they're parted by the veil between the world of mortals and the land of the dead, Romeo believes he can restore Juliet to life, but he'll have to travel to the underworld with a thoroughly infuriating guide.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, may not have inherited his father's crown, but the murdered king left his son a much more important responsibility---a portal to the Afterjord, where the souls of the dead reside. When the determined Romeo asks for help traversing the treacherous Afterjord, Hamlet sees an opportunity for adventure and the chance to avenge his father's death.
In an underworld filled with leviathan monsters, ghoulish shades, fire giants, and fierce Valkyrie warriors, Hamlet and Romeo must battle their way through jealousy, despair, and their darkest fears to rescue the fair damsel. Yet finding Juliet is only the beginning, and the Afterjord doesn't surrender souls without a price...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Slow pacing and hard-to-like characters, but a unique story overall 5 février 2014
Par Kaitlyn (The Bookworm) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I really wanted to love this book. It has one of the best premises ever: Shakespeare + Norse mythology. And as a huge fan of Shakespeare's work and anything related to Norse mythology, I was sure I'd love it. But honestly, I struggled to finish this book. It took me a long time to get through it; simply because the pacing was so slow.

The characters were okay for me. I liked them well enough, but I had a hard time truly rooting for them or caring about what happened to them. The beginning of the book was mostly about Hamlet and Romeo getting started on their quests, but I did enjoy Juliet's character once she appeared. I like the way the author expanded on her character and made her a lot stronger than the Juliet we know in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. She had a good character arc and I did like her pretty well. As for Hamlet, I liked his sense of humor at times, but his character didn't leave a lasting impression on me. Romeo got on my nerves. I can't pinpoint why; I think it's mostly that he was too stubborn.

But my biggest problem was really the pacing. I think the perspective has a lot to do with this. The book is written in third person, but we get the perspectives of Hamlet, Romeo, and Juliet. It just made the writing seem choppy and a bit confusing. The story simply didn't flow, and I had a hard time keeping my attention on it.

Still, aside from my problems with the characters and pacing, this isn't a bad read. I did actually like the plot and how the characters have different goals they're trying to accomplish, and the world-building was pretty creative, although the descriptions of it could've been clearer at times. If you can get past the slow pacing, it'll end up being an interesting read. Plus, the ending was awesome. I'm really pleased with how the author ended the story; what a great twist.

I absolutely loved the idea of this book, but it just didn't work for me. However, other fans of Shakespeare and/or Norse mythology might want to give this a shot. It's certainly a unique story, though I ultimately didn't enjoy it as much as I'd hoped.

*I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

I'm a huge Shakespeare geek with a particular love of Hamlet so I ate this up. Interesting interpretation of the characters, great world building. I hope the sequel is going well. I have to throw in: could we get some Rosencrantz and Guildenstern?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The perfect mix of Shakespeare and Mythology! 4 février 2014
Par Maria Pilar Albarran Ruiz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
When I first saw the summary for this book I was so sold on it. Romeo going to rescue Juliet from the Underworld as another Morpheus in search of Eurydice, and having Hamlet as guide? That was so promising and so not-your-usual romantic plot!

So when I got approved for it on NetGalley I was very pleasantly surprised! Thank you, Entangled Teen!

There is a romantic plot in this book, because what can be more romantic that go into Hell to try and bring back the one you love? It's also quite full of all sorts of mythology to the brim, which simply made me too happy! I'm not sure how to review this cause I don't want to spoil this for anyone and I'm not entirely sure what would or wouldn't be a spoiler... We have Shakespearian characters being quite true to character for the most part, a journey to the Underworld and plenty of mythology references.

Romeo didn't die but Juliet did, so when he wakes up from the poison he decides to try and bring back Juliet from death any way he can, he's told to journey north and he finds Hamlet as the one that can help him on his quest.

I must confess I wasn't sure what to expect of this book, I was hoping it'd be something different but wow did I get it! From the moment they step into the Underworld and encounter frost giants!?! This book was quite a wild ride, with some moments of irritation at the characters, rooting for them massively and not being sure what to expect the rest of the time.

Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet start very much as you'd remember them from their original books (if you've read them, and if not you must have watched some form or other of version of these very well known classics) but I love the character development they have, specially Juliet! Oh I cannot say anything more cause otherwise I'd surely drop big spoilers, but I sure loved seeing her as much more than a girl in love!

For some reason I was expecting this one to be a standalone, but with that ending I know it is the first one of a series for sure. It was not a horrible cliffhanger but it does tell you that there is more to come. And I do plan to read whatever comes next too!

Very well deserved 4 stars for this very atypical twist to the classics with a healthy dose of mythology.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Chapter by Chapter's review of Such Sweet Sorrow 27 avril 2014
Par MaryAnn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was really excited to get reading Such Sweet Sorrow by author Jenny Trout once I read the premise of the novel: what happens to Romeo and Juliet after their story ends with Hamlet thrown into the mix. While I haven’t read Hamlet yet but I have read Romeo & Juliet, I was interested in seeing this new twist where Romeo will go to retrieve Juliet from the land of the dead. By the time the novel had finished I was pumped and hopeful for a sequel.

In Such Sweet Sorrow, the poison that Romeo took to kill himself in Juliet’s tomb doesn’t work and he begins to live his life overcome with guilt for what has happened to her. After visiting a witch, Romeo is told to head north where a murdered king ruled and comes across Hamlet. Hamlet and Romeo become reluctant allies as both of them want to retrieve something from the world of the dead and Hamlet is the only person who can bring Romeo to the Afterjord.

Upon entering the Aferjord, Romeo and Hamlet both find that this will be a hard task to accomplish. Having to fight through beasts beyond their wildest imaginations, encountering worlds meant for sinners and for fierce warriors, and meeting Valkyries— Retrieving Juliet will be far more difficult than they think.

What I really liked about Such Sweet Sorrow was how the characters Romeo and Juliet were re-invented. They weren’t the exact same blinded-by-love, foolish characters that they were in the original play. In the length of time that Romeo has spent mourning Juliet his character has developed a lot more. He isn’t the same guy who tried to kill himself because Juliet was dead, he isn’t the same guy who would act without his plan being thought through at least a little bit. This was one thing that majorly effected how much I liked the novel.

Another thing that had me worried was the fact that I have never read Hamlet. I don’t know the first thing about his character, his play or anything. Author Jenny Trout does a very good job at describing Hamlet’s character and his situation without confusing the reader. I got to know his character, his story and I have to say that I am a lot more interested in reading Hamlet now (not to mention what a total badass he was in this novel).

Apart from the two main characters, the world that Such Sweet Sorrow is set in—the Afterjord—was crazy. It’s basically the world of the dead filled with multiple worlds for an afterlife. The boys have to fight beasts that I didn’t even imagine they would have to face, leaving the Afterjord begins to seem impossible and it’s just such a strange setting. It’s both light and dark. There are parts of it that are paradise and then there are parts that must be Hell. Very imaginative.

Judging by how Such Sweet Sorrow reached its end, I have no doubt in my mind that there will be a sequel. Which I am dying for. Such Sweet Sorrow is a well-written, unique continuation of what must have happened after Romeo & Juliet that I enjoyed every moment of. It’s a dark adventure that doesn’t focus so much on the romance as it does on the action. The best of every single world.

I would recommend Such Sweet Sorrow to readers who have been wondering ‘what happens after Romeo & Juliet? And do they end up going to some hellish realm?’ Readers who are fans of adventure novels or just want a story that keeps them on the edge of their seat will love Such Sweet Sorrow.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A New Twist on Shakespeare 13 mars 2015
Par Kat Lively - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Imagine what would happen if Romeo survived (physically, anyway) the double suicide that took away Shakespeare's famous star-crossed lovers. Imagine what might happen if a certain Danish prince with his own family problems steps in to assist the mourning Italian, all the while hoping to accomplish revenge on his father's untimely death. Jenny Trout's Such Sweet Sorrow takes two Shakespearean heroes out of their element and thrusts them on an otherworldly adventure to save Juliet, and ultimately to save themselves.

The core of this story reminded me a bit of the film What Dreams May Come, where Robin Williams travels the afterlife to retrieve his suicidal wife from her personal hell. Sorrow blends the Shakespearean lore with Scandinavian mythology, prophetic witches, and lots of swordplay. I don't want to spoil the story, but while it might not have the ending most would want (and it appears this may be the first in a probable series) Sorrow does end on a note of hope. I liked the paranormal twist to the stories and the characterization of the leads. Hamlet is appealingly arrogant, Romeo loyal to a fault, and Juliet is just kickass.

I can't say how Shakespearean purists will like this, but if you're looking for a good young adult fantasy it's worth the read
