Under a Dancing StarF Much Ado About Nothing William Shakespeare It is predictable yes but then if you are reading a love story set in Italy in 1933 in a villa full of artists you don t want a it deliveredIt is perfect if You Something Light To want something light to on a sunny not so sunny day I know that for Laura Wood is definitely a perfect author to read during summer I loved this book It was so niue It s about a girl named Bea who lives in England and her parents ship her off to live with her Shattered Pillars (Eternal Sky, uncle in Italy so she can become ladylike it s set in the 1930 s In reality herncle is engaged and his fianc is friends with a bunch of painters and writers who also live with them Bea joins them and it s basically a bunch of people living together and having a lot of fun There is romance obviously and it s SO cute It made me laugh out loud and say awww at all the cute parts At one point the love interest says I think you re extraordinary So if that doesn t convince you to read the book then I don t know what will Also there is a party for Jupiter to make it rain OK how cool is that Another Laura Wood novel that did not disappoint This was just a pleasant surprise and I love every single bit of it Just like A Sky Painted Gold I think I can reread the novel over and over again From today on Laura Wood is one of my auto buy authors I read Laura Wood s debut YA A Sky Painted Gold earlier in 2019 and fell in love with it It was my perfect idea of a book historical fiction with a romance to die for and a female heroine it was impossible not to fall in love with Laura Wood even started my love for Eva Ibbotson s books and I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith which I ll forever be grateful forSo it s safe to say I was a tiny bit excited to read Under a Dancing Star And by a tiny bit I mean I thought about reading it at least five times a day without fail every day It s been my most anticipated release of 2019 especially as it too sounded like my perfect idea of a book a Much Ado About Nothing re telling my favourite Shakespeare play set during Italy in the 1930 s AmazingI read Under a Dancing Star within the space of a few hours because I could not put it down It was impossible to tear myself away from Wood s mesmerising prose her witty lines and incredibly realistic characters I was torn between wanting to read it all and not wanting it to end but eventually I settled on practically inhaling it and will most definitely be revisiting it line for line word for word very soonBea our heroine is a science loving ick witted sometimes clumsy protagonist who does Shakespeare s Beatrice proud She had my heart from the moment she turned p clutching a jam jar full of glow worms and I loved being able to explore the different layers to her character the weight her parents expectations place on her her desire to make something of her life I didn t think it was possible to take Shakespeare s Beatrice and make her even rounded but Wood manages to do this with ease and Beatrice follows in the footsteps of Eva Ibbotson s Ruth Berger The Morning Gift and Sarah Perry s Cora Seaborne The Essex Serpent All characters I have huge respect and a slight envy for My favourite aspect of Wood s novels is watching the heroine come into her own and discover who she really is Even though on the surface Under a Dancing Star is about the burgeoning romance between Bea and Benedick at its heart is Bea s journey to realising her true self a journey that I think is so vital for teenager s to see The romance.

read Under a Dancing Star

Wood evidently strives to emulate Shakespeare s acerbic wit but strays instead into the obnoxious and that s why Under a Dancing Star made me gag a littleThe plot is very much derivative of Much Ado About Nothing me gag a littleThe plot is very much derivative of Much Ado About Nothing opposed to sing the source material as an inspiration Rather than infusing her prose with the themes or conflicts of the play Wood makes its ancestry abundantly clear the conseuence of which is that Under a Dancing Star reads like starstruck fanfiction Perhaps the Shakespearean parallels lured her into a false sense of security the gauzy characterization is heavily dependent on archetypes and the existing characters of Beatrice and Benedick which I must say maybe even denies Wood her imagination The novel itself is saturated with the suspicion that it was written with the view of satisfying Wood s enthusiasm for the play rather than crafting an original coming of age standalone Crucify meA key selling point of Much Ado About Nothing is of course the sharp tongued feisty yet caring and compassionate Beatrice Wood s retort is Bea a character who is evidently aspiring to a feminist icon A particularly irritating facet of the novel is that it is explicitly direct in its delineation of the moral orthodoxy of the time lacking the nuance that makes a compelling feminist novel As far as my parents are concerned daughters aren t terribly Things Mother Used to Make useful asset I m not supposed to go out into the world and actually do thingsThey d like me to be ornamental I m just too much for them Too big too loud too clever Such pretentious exposition affords a reader very little credit And let s not forget those subtle reminders of Bea s searing agency It s time to take my destiny into my own hands Her dialogue is contrived and her freuent outrageous sex references as a means to differentiate her from her peers areite frankly wince inducingThe moral orthodoxy in estion feels mysteriously archaic for the interwar period serving only to instigate the somewhat conventional narrative of feisty tomboy refuses to marry for moneysecurity She doesn t need rescuing It s also glaringly incongruous with the tone elsewhere Bea s parents and their agenda would fit seamlessly into a Victorian euivalent Come on it s time to break free of these static images of feminismRedeeming features there must be Wood s writing is lively and engaging though at times pretentious whilst her evocation of the Tuscan landscape is stunning Perhaps had the romance been compelling and less saccharine I may have enjoyed this But as it stands good guilty pleasure reading With thanks to Scholastic for the Advance Reader s Copy I LOVED the Much Ado About Nothing film as a kid based of course off of the Shakespeare play This book takes on one of the character paths From This Play And this play and the story of Beatrice and Benedick who have a love hate relationship throughout the book Bea is a 17 year old girl sent to Italy by her parents to be watched over by her Uncle Who Has Started To Tread has started to tread down the bohemian path Her Uncle s house has become home to many artists which is how Bea meets Ben and so the journey beginsThe beauty in the words of this book creates a captivating and atmospheric reading A dreamy and romantic summer read with a little seriousness than I was expecting but that s certainly no criticism considering the time in which it is set Plus Much Ado is my favourite Shakespeare Laura Wood does know how to write an excellent retelling especially set during summerThis is a fun retelling In grey 1930s England Bea has grown p kicking against the conventions of the time all the while knowing that she will one day have to marry someone her parents choose someone rich enough to keep the family estate alive But she longs for so much for adventure excitement travel and maybe even romanceWhen she gets the chance to spend the summer Which was just as swoonworthy as Lou and Robert s in A Sky Painted Gold was out of this world amazing Keeping the acerbic wit I love most in Shakespeare s Much Ado About Nothing it also had a tenderness and sweetness that I wasn t expecting it s never clich or forced but It s never clich or forced but natural as breathing Setting also plays a huge part in Under a Dancing Star set in Italy you can feel the heat of the Italian summer sun rising out of each page I loved reading about the plants and birds and insects that Bea came across I loved the descriptions of the food and the weather in contrast to Bea s native England And most of all Wood has a way of describing the sky that is second to none She makes me want to climb atop a roof in Florence and gaze at the stars something no author has ever achieved beforeI thought it was going to be impossible to beat A Sky Painted Gold but Laura Wood has achieved the almost impossible a perfect second novel that compliments the first in total harmony whilst having a style and charm that is completely its ownLaura Wood s books make me believe that I can achieve anything as long as I believe in myself and am prepared for the journey to get there Pure magic from first page to last The best book I m likely to read in 2019 and maybe just the best YA book I ve ever read Under A Dancing Star by Laura Wood Disclaimer Laura is my pal But I made her be my friend because I m OBSESSED WITH HER BOOKS They re the perfect comfort reads which just speak to my soul This one is no exception a PREUEL to MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING set in THE THIRTIES in ITALY in an ARTIST S COMMUNE UM Excellent In every way I have so many thoughts about Ben and Bea and the misshapen way they fit together during the book and in the future I want a It s no secret that I love Much Ado About Nothing Italy and books with artsy people This had all three of those plus an absolutely stunning cover and I really enjoyed this overall First off Bea and Ben is one of my OTPs and I loved this take on their relationship any form of fake dating can get it I also liked that this addressed some of what happened in 1933 but I think it remained too simplistic while Trying To Portray Various to portray various of view same as with Bea not adhering to the traditional image of femininity This wasn t perfect but it didn t need to be that for me to really dig this I am in head over heels in love with Laura Wood s YA historical fiction Last year I fell in love with 1920s Cornwall in A SKY PAINTED GOLD and this year I was whisked away to sun swept Tuscany in the 1930sInspired by Much Ado About Nothing with a heroine reminiscent of Sybil from Downton Abbey and a lazy Italian summer setting evoking other works such as Call Me By Your Name UNDER A DANCING STAR is a beautiful novel about a girl finding her place in the world and deciding to take control of her life and who she wants to be She also falls in love with a very handsome artist along the way The lush Tuscan setting was expertly combined with a dazzling cast of characters I m a bit in love with Ursula and the history included here and there about the rise of Mussolini and #fascism was really interesting Also I m really happy Wood always adds a bit of LGBT #was really interesting Also I m really happy Wood always adds a bit of LGBT to her novels there s an older secondary ff couple featured and one of the central cast is bisexual I really hope Wood is writing another YA hist fic along the same lines as these two just so next summer will be even wonderful Also please Ms Wood it you see this I would adore a seuel 3 a solid 45 stars.
