EBOOK/EPUB The Taming of the Werewolf

Rsonally I liked the idea that Kate was always this stubborn woman but that s neither here nor there The main tossup I really had involved the ending stubborn woman but that s neither here nor there The main tossup I really Had Involved The Ending The Original The involved the ending the original The of the Shrew Petruchio or less turns Katherina into what would have been considered the perfect emale mild complacent and completely obedient to her husband while in The Taming of the Werewolf Kate and Petruchio are in love Yes she is still tamed Kate and Petruchio are in love Yes she is still tamed it is her choice in Werewolf while in Shrew this isn t necessarily the case While the original work is extremely sexist to the point where it had me grinding my teeth I also realise that this was how those times were So yes I wanted to punch Petruchio but at the same time this if 16th century Italy With The Taming of the Werewolf it is a lot less sexist but the whole alling in love at the end really bothers me Sure I like Petruchio a lot but as I pointed out this is 16th century Italy Sure love is possible but considering that Petruchio and Katherina have only been together or a ew days and that Petruchio originally married Kate My Wifes Affair for money alone it seems damn unlikely So what s better Having it be authentic or having Petruchio be less of a dick and letting women and some men have that romanticantasyOverall this was a book of extremes Dîwana Jan for me There were a variety of things I loved and a multitude of things I despised making this uite the see saw Does this book have issues Clearly Is it worth reading I d say yes Is it worth buying I m not sure on that I guess it would depend on the priceor me I have to admit I really enjoyed this The shift between narrators really kept the pace up and made you sympathetic to both of them.

E room I didn t since this was not my personal copy I constantly had to stop reading and calm myself The irst this happened was when Shults gave Kate The irst time this happened was when Shults gave Kate love story where she alls in love with a servant boy by the name of Amadeo First off the loving outside of your class is extremely overdone That s NOT TO SAY I DISLIKE IT BUT IT CAN to say I dislike it but it can very old and when you see something played out all the time the author need uite the talent to make it seem worthwhile to the reader However I think it was the he ll be the only love in my life tripe that had me grinding my teethThe other thing that bothered me when the author was writing alone was when Kate turns into a wolf She still seemed human to me Now I am in no way saying that every werewolf should lose all it humanity I think the humanwolf mindset is brilliant but in my experience ew authors have been able to pull it off well Sure Kate says she longs to take a bite out of a living rabbit but it always Naples! felt like simple words to me I neverelt the wolf s passion in Shults writing Now I do like the The Curious Cases of Cyriack Skinner Grey fact that the author integrated real wolf traits in her character I liked that she made her werewolf wolf like than monster like What s is she seemed to do her research on how wolves act though I didind a couple of mistakes As I said her werewolf just too human minded Itsuka for my likingEverything else was a tossup to me on whether I enjoyed it or not Part of this was Sylvia Shults giving Kate a reason to be a shrew because being property isn t reason enough and to dislike Bianca I liked that she tried tolesh out Kate but I disliked that the author had Kate start out as your typical Renaissance woman Pe.
