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...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The perfect mix of Shakespeare and Mythology! 4 février 2014
Par Pili at In Love With Handmade - 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Retelling 4 février 2014
Par Farrah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Dark, romantic, and absolutely amazing! Such Sweet Sorrow was a brilliant YA romance/retelling. I absolutely loved this book! From the depiction of Shakespeare's characters, to the thrills, to the unexpected twist, this book was perfection.

I have to admit, I was a bit worried going in to this book. The author was taking on huge characters and changing their stories. And, because of how much I adore Shakespeare, it would only have taken one slip for me to be completely turned off from the book. But, I think she did it brilliantly. She took the characters and made them her own in an original way that still stayed true to them. So, I thought that was perfect.

All three major characters were wonderful.
Romeo was so determined and entirely devoted to the woman he loved. He proved that his declarations of love weren't meaningless, staying true to them even against death. He was very sweet and I adored him character.

Juliet was also lovely. She was strong and held her own in a dangerous world. And, she was very loyal to Romeo, determined that he should make it out of the afterlife alive, even if she had to remain dead. She fought for her loved ones and proved herself as a heroine. I really liked her.

The romance between these famous lovers were so sweet. Their feelings for each other were obvious in everything they did and I thought they were a lovely couple.

Hamlet was a little more difficult to understand. He was aloof and utterly incapable of understanding other people's emotions and disinclined to spare them. But, when he came to consider a person his friend, he would fight all the way for them. I thought he was fantastic.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were tons of thrills along the way that kept me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the story and that twist at the end left me stunned. The ending was bittersweet and I both loved it and resented it, for giving the hope of a happy ending, but not assuring it for me. There was a hint of more things to come at the end, but I haven't yet heard of a sequel. I really hope there will be one, because I'm not ready to let go of these newly imagined characters yet.

Such Sweet Sorrow was a brilliant YA read. From the romance, to the thrills, to the shocking twists, this book was amazing. I completely and totally adored this book! YA lovers, romance lovers, and Shakespeare lovers, this a book you don't want to miss.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Such Sweet Sorrow 19 février 2014
Par Serenity - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I loved reading this book. It turned out much better than I thought. I loved the sound of the book and got excited that Juliet and Hamlet's stories are brought in and given a new twist on things.

So Romeo takes some poison and just happens to live through it. He is now even more determined to get to Juliet. Well he can't get to her right now, so he goes to Hamlet. He just happens to be in charge of protecting a doorway to the underworld.
Uh okay, so first Romeo is given an antidote, and Hamlet is guarding the door to the underworld....None of this happened in the original love stories. Right now I'm not sure if I like it or not. Plus the story started out a bit slower than I had hoped for, but it does pick up and get me hooked.

What annoyed me was Hamlet joking a lot, he was supposed to be crazy. Romeo was okay for me, he does have an attitude. Juliet was just being herself, and she was the character that I loved the most.

So even though the book did pick up for me and I was hooked, I did have those issues with the characters and I wished the plot would unravel it self earlier in the book.

I would give this book a 3.5-4 stars

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.
