Teaser Tuesday: Henry V

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. To participate, simply do the following: Grab your current read Open to a random page Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


This week's teaser is taken from Henry V (retold in modern-day English) by Timothy Knapman. Enjoy.

Henry V retold by Timothy Knapman:
The fighting was hard and cruel and each felt sure he was going to die. Suddenly, in the din of battle, they heard a trumpet sound from the battlements of Harfleur.

I didn't think it possible to enjoy a play by Shakespeare retold in modern-day English, but this was such a fun read that I gobbled it up.

Want to know why exactly the retelling of Henry V was such a good read, than stop by my review.
