    New Boy eBook å Ebook New Boy PDFThe Hogarth Shakespeare series has brought us a mixed bunch of novelisations to date some excellent My Name is Shylock Hag Seed some so so Vinegar Girl and this which just didn't work for me at all Chevalier transfers Othello to an American elementary school in 1970s Washington and makes all the characters 11 year olds yep 11 In some ways this sticks uite closely to the play in terms of the plot and characters details O is Othello Dee is Desdemona the racist teacher Mr Brabant is Brabantio the school bully Ian is Iago the handkerchief is a strawberry pencil case but it misses the spirit of the play by a long way and cramming all the events into a single day compounds the sheer unbelievability of the whole thing Making the characters children and given that this is the 1970s they're likely to be immature than today's 11 year olds means that their thoughts and actions don't have psychological verisimilitude I couldn't believe for a second that Mimi Emilia can say to O Othello 'I used

    New Boy eBook å Ebook New Boy PDFI will be honest here and say that while I knew the rough story of Othello I have never read it or seen it so I chose to read this book from the synopsis rather than the Shakespearean connectionThe story is set in Washington in the 70’s the focus of the book is a Ghanaian diplomat’s son called Osei It’s his first day at a new school and the story takes place on that one day The main focus is on a group of students Osei Dee Mimi Blanca Casper and Ian There is also focus on the hideous teacher Mr Brabant and his colleague Miss Lode who mostly is a uiet and pliable characterIan is an awful child he is the school bully a manipulative racist who

    New Boy eBook å Ebook New Boy PDFMy third in this series of Shakespearean rewrites but sadly I did not enjoy it as much as either Hag Seed or Vinegar GirlNew Boy is based on Othello and many of the similarities were obvious but I thought the author's idea of placing the action in a 1970's elementary school in the USA was problematic at least for me I really feel that eleven year old children in 1970 were not so street smart or so sexualised I am sure they may have ostracised the single non white child in the school but the havoc this child wreaks in one simple six hour school day is nonsensicalThe idea was good the writing is good but the setting is wrong and the time span far too short Even for a Young Adult audience the age group of the characters is too youngOops Sorry did not mean to be so critical Let's just say this book did not do it for me but I notice that many other people liked it very much
