“A succulent slice of the Bard… Enormously enjoyable!” – The Good Book Guide

    The Good Book Guide recently reviewed Toast as an ideal stocking filler:

    As the book’s inviting title suggests, this is a succulent slice of the Bard, demystifying Shakespeare for those who consider him inaccessible, archaic or plain boring.

    Crystal wears his erudition lightly, his vibrant, witty style enormously enjoyable as he presents a wonderfully jaunty and informative ride through Shakespeare.

    “Humourous, unpretentious and fascinating” — The Independent On Sunday

    Last weekend’s Independent on Sunday chose Toast as one of their Christmas Stocking Fillers, going as far as to say:

    Ben Crystal, a professional actor, wrote the zippy, anecdotal Shakespeare on Toast (Icon £11.99) to give the reader “the ability to go to any Shakespeare play and feel comfortable reading or watching it”.

    He’s succeeded. It’s humourous, unpretentious and fascinating.
