Romeo and Juliet: A Novel by David Hewson

From my reading page, where I keep track of the books I have read recently:

This Audible Original audiobook gained a lot of attention in certain circles when it was first released. I was once into audiobooks a lot more than I am now due to the nature of previous commutes (i.e. driving to work versus riding the bus), but I am a reader at heart more than a listener. This book is available (at least as of now) in audio form only and, honestly, I could listen to Richard Armitage read all day long. All that aside, David Hewson has adapted other Shakespeare plays into novels before and the idea intrigued me enough to purchase this. In short, this is possibly the best adaptation I have ever read/heard. The idea of taking a classic work of this magnitude and making it better is no small feat, but going a step further to revitalize and expound upon it is amazing. And I love Juliet as a strong-willed, intelligent, and much more feministic character.

Check out the Audible page for the book here.

Friction

There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife

Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance

But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night

And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
