    One thought on “The Next Shakespeare”

    1. As a short story, I enjoyed The Next Shakespeare. It was a fun, light read, with real life depth. (Does "real life depth" make sense? It does in my head, anyway!) It was a short story, meaning only 20 pages, but in those 20 pages I quickly grew to really like Astra and Tristan. Astra was the narrator, but the story really wasn't about her. It was more or less about her two friends, Tristan and Chris. Tristan was a slacker, the "dumb" kid. Chris was university bound, and had received countless aw [...]

    2. Chris had won a few academic awards, deeming himself the next Einstein. However, he still seemed upset because he had felt he had deserved to be the next Shakespeare. Astra is used to his whining about grades, though when he complains about not getting the Shakespeare award, he has gone a bit too far. The next Shakespeare went to Tristan, one of Astra’s friends, a boy who doesn’t have a lot. Chris needs to learn a valuable lesson of life if he expects Astra to talk to him again. This is a ve [...]

    3. First off I just want to say that this book is really short!And I'm actually really glad it is. I read this all in one sitting, and I thought that 20 pages was the perfect amount for this story but not enough to connect with the characters.The point of view is Astra's. She has two guy friends Chris and Tristan. Chris is a really smart guy but thinks he's better than everyone one else because of that. Tristan is a sweet guy that comes from a broken home and I think just wants to make it out of hi [...]

    4. I have always thought that the measure of a good children's - or in this case - teen - novel is if, as an adult, you can also read and thoroughly enjoy it. This definitely falls into this category.As it is a short story it is all too easy to give too much away, so I won't go into the plot, but I will say that I enjoyed the characters. They were real, had genuine and authentic emotions and reactions and the interactions worked every time. Wanda's style is light, with appropriate touches of humour [...]

    5. As a short story, The Next Shakespeare was a quick and enjoyable read. We meet Tristan, Astra and Chris briefly and get a glimpse into their lives. Just enough of a glimpse to satiate the reader, without too much information. It actually was kind of refreshing. Things get really interesting when Tristan wins an award that Chris has been coveting. What ensues is a sweet, short, and lesson filled story that I really liked. At it's core this is a story about friendship. Chris is used to winning awa [...]

    6. More reviews on my blog!The Next Shakespeare was a young adult short story filled with interesting characters and inspiring events. The story is told from the point of view of Astra and from the short time that I was with her, I could tell that she was very sassy and likable. She is the Switzerland between jealous, spoiled Chris and modest Tristan. I liked really Tristan for many reasons. He was the underdog and people looked down upon him because his mom worked at Quickie Mart and because he wa [...]

    7. The Next Shakespeare is very much about forging your own path and learning to accept defeat. In this story, Tristan unintentionally wins an award that Chris covets and despite receiving five scholastic awards of his own, Chris is not satisfied. He cannot fathom how “stupid” Tristan beat him at anything, but ends up learning something more important in the end. It’s an extremely cliché storyline and I wasn’t very impressed at all. The setting is not very well established and, although yo [...]

    8. I was a little hestitant about the story itself because I wasn't too sure what it really was about. But, once the story got going it became fairly clear. Astra's good friend Tristan has won an award for poetry. An award that Chris wanted to win. Chris is the next Einstein and eagerly devoures the awards he recieves. And he's a bit shocked when Tristan, a fellow student who can't afford unversity and isn't as talented as Chris believes he is, wins the award he really wanted to win. And that is we [...]

    9. This is a very interesting coming-of-age short story entailing greed and selfishness. Tristan has won an award he doesn’t want, Chris has won five awards except the one he really wants, and Astra is stuck in the middle of this war brought on by Chris, a greedy, selfish young man who can’t fathom how someone like Tristan, of all people, could have won The Next Shakespeare award. I thought this was a very well written short story, though I wasn’t able to connect with the characters as much a [...]

    10. What I liked most about this short story is that Wanda Ernstberger used her 4000 words wisely. There was a message in this book for our lovely young adults, a lesson to be learned about friendship, and treating each other equally. This book would be a great read on your way to school. It'll put some friends into perspective and maybe, just maybe, help you stand up to a bully or a snob. The book was written in Astra's POV even though we practically learned nothing about her, other than who her pa [...]
