A nice addition to any library.

     Gareth Hinds has helped to bring Shakespeare to life in this graphic novel rendition of, The Merchant of Venice.  The muted black and white with the hint of blue illustrations make the story seem continuous and almost like a film.  This book will be enjoyed by students...
