Book Review: Ploetzlich Shakespeare by David Safier

Hey there!
Today I want to review a book I read lately. It was recommended to me by my sister, and I thought you might want to hear about it.
The book's called Ploetzlich Shakespeare, which is German and could be translated as "Suddenly Shakespeare". It's written by David Safier, a pretty popular German author, who also wrote "Mieses Karma" which some of you might now.
Now, onto the book. It's about a woman named Rosa, who is heart-broken because her big love is going to marry someone else. She's so desperate that she goes to a hypnotist. She's sent back to an earlier life of her soul, and that turns out to be Shakespeare! And she won't be able to get back to her real life before she finds out what real love is. And during that time she'll have to share the body with a man...
That's the story summed up quickly, and of course only the beginning of the book.
At first I thought this would be the typical love story, like, woman meets man, they get closer, man hurts woman or vice versa, they get back together. Luckily it's not! It's totally different than I expected :D
The whole thing is really funny, entertaining and just a bit romantic. Towards the end it gets more romantic, maybe even a bit soupy, but not too bad. It's mainly funny!
Quite a few times it offers some kind of wise saying, but they're mainly something you would really think!
You can imagine it all really nicely, it's written kinda realistic.
Now, this is a little pleasure read. It's not deep at all, more light-weight. It's fun to read, I enjoyed it a lot, but don't expect it to be THE book for intelligent people ;)
After all, if you're looking for a cute pleasure read, I'm sure you will enjoy this one :)
Did anyone read this, too?
I'll see you soon!
xoxo, Misch
