Wow! This was a tremendous book. I loved every minute of it. I really enjoyed how the characters unfolded. Any book that can both make me laugh out loud and pause to reread the beauty and poignancy of a single line is pretty impressive. Thank you, Mr. Phillips, for sharing your gift with us. This is the first Arthur Phillips' book I have read. Any suggestions for which should be the second?

I loved the book. I was mad about having to read the play, but I enjoyed it, and I even tried to imagine what the "Shakespeare experts" were thinking when they got to certain parts. Obviously, I was hooked.

Brilliant book –you’re a genius. Huge fan since The Egyptologist came out. I read Prague immediately after finishing it and was hooked; I await every book now. Enjoyed your reading in D.C. last week. I was awestruck, dumbfounded and tongue-tied to meet someone I admire so much. I hope you’ll read in Richmond; you have fans here. Appreciated the Jeopardy! advice, too—I’ll owe you if I get on the show and win.

What a great read! I've enjoyed all your books and this is the best so far. Great characterizations (Dad, Petra). Thanks so much.

Thanks for this wonderful book, rewarding on so many levels. I bought it after hearing you deliver Mordred's soliloquy on NPR's Studio 360 and thinking to myself that, joke or not, I would absolutely have used that as an audition piece back in my acting days. My next-door neighbor is an established Arthurian legend scholar--I bought him a copy and have my ear cupped now awaiting the sound of his head exploding. And I hope your readers don't skip the footnotes!

I loved the book. I appreciate what it has to say about authenticity, and the relationship between the brand and the experience, plus that it was so funny and emotionally resonant, and finally that someone else feels the way I do about Shakespeare. You know this is true because I didn't read past the introduction.
