Every week over on Breaking the Spine, bloggers share the titles they’re most looking forward to. And this week, my pick is Romeo and/or Juliet. Yup it’s a choose your own adventure book!
Blurb: Shakespeare’s plays weren’t meant to be read. They were meant…to be played.
What if Romeo never met Juliet? What if Juliet got really buff instead of moping around all day? What if they teamed up to take over Verona with robot suits? This choose-your-own-path version of Romeo and Juliet—packed with fun puzzles, secrets, and quadrillions of possible storylines—lets you decide where the plot goes every time you read. You might play as Romeo, or as Juliet, or as both of them at the same time. You might even unlock additional playable characters!
That’s right. We figured out how to have unlockable characters in books.
The first time I read this I laughed so hard! Juliet getting buff? Robot suits? Any book which made me laugh like that, I NEED!
What do you think of Romeo and/or Juliet?
