Finding Kate by Maryanne Fantalis
Though I understand where some of the readers posting are coming from, I think this story could not have concluded any other way while staying true to the characters. She is, after all, a girl who is chafing against the confines of her very limited role in life. She is compared to her sister. It always seemed so unfair to me. By modern standards, she would be a senator or a lawyer, not made to feel wrong simply for existing! She has become a shrew, but primarily because she is reacting to being unjustly treated by her father and sister.
She does not trust that he is interested in more than her dowry. Her self-confidence is shot by years of abuse and she has built a thick protective shell around her. She has been told her unworthiness so many times that she believes it to her core. Did I like the way he treats her after their marriage? It is meant to be awful. It is not a fairy tale, and if their personalities had changed when they married I would have been really dissatisfied.
Instead, Fantalis helps us see how they must forge something new together. In fact, instead of making it a comedy as Shakespeare did though there are lots of funny moments from witty turns of phrase , Fantalis shows the anguish that both Kathryn and William go through.
She makes their relationship true and realistic in a way I had not imagined was possible. It's a lovely book. You will never think of The Taming of the Shrew in the same way again. Feb 19, Jessie Gussman rated it it was amazing. So, I can't say how closely this follows it. For me to love a romance, I want great writing and believable, building attraction.
I have to say the writing in this book is superb. Sometimes I stopped reading just to smile and savor a particularly great phrase or sentence. You can't always find this level of writing in romance. Insta attractions are not believable to me, and whil I have to admit, I've never read Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Insta attractions are not believable to me, and while I would have loved to have a little more developed backstory into the history of the hero's interest in the heroine, I adored the very believable and well-developed attraction between the two.
It's one of the reasons I read romance, and this book did not disappoint. I also love the idea of taking Shakespeare's plays and rewriting them from the heroine's point of view. For me the ultimate message of the book was that a husband and wife are a team. Plus, isn't that what romance is all about?

It's not about me anymore, it's about us. Sep 06, John Clark rated it it was amazing. Satisfying and eye-opening take on the Taming of the Shrew. Kathryn is too intelligent for her time and her own good. Following her inner dialogue as she looks at life around her and how she finds it almost impossible at first, anyhow to break out of a young lifetime of habits in order to find a paradoxical new freedom, makes for a dandy read.
You don't need to know Shakespeare to savor this book. It's worth a look by school and public libraries caring about interesting tales for intelligent t Satisfying and eye-opening take on the Taming of the Shrew. It's worth a look by school and public libraries caring about interesting tales for intelligent teens. May 09, Danielle rated it it was amazing.
I gotta say, I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard this was a retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. My biggest experience with the story is actually a ballet I loved to watch when I was a child by Bejart's company. At any rate, Fantalis' take on the story was fun. I enjoyed reading things from Katherine's POV and knowing why she had become bitter. The period elements are well done and the writing is beautiful. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon read.

While the other men are immediately smitten with Blanche, he is partial to Kathryn. He is looking for a wife that will be patient and obedient. He sees that potential in Kathryn but he also sees beyond the surface. He sees who Kathryn can be. He proposes and the wedding date is set. When he does not show up for the wedding, Kathryn is just further embarrassed in front of a community that mocks her anyway. Kathryn is surprised when Sir William arrives to take her to his home as his wife in the middle of the night.
She travels to his castle and he begins the process of helping her see who she can really be. A better version of herself.

I liked the new Kate and was so happy with the ending of the book. Jun 03, Kim Imas rated it it was amazing.

Then it hit me: Cinderella responded to her ill-treatment with [unrealistic] meekness, and got a Disney princess coined in her honor as a reward. By finally letting this particular heroine—and a heroine she is! May 24, Shruti Subramaniam rated it really liked it. For those who are unaware, the book is one of Shakespeare's comedies, which, besides being funny, are also meant to be satirical. It is NOT a book that promotes abusing women into obedience.
Rather, it is a critique of society. Finding Kate is a quick, fast-paced read and blends popular Shakespearean scenes with a new spin on the story. I always enjoy an independent, sassy heroine and Kathryn was no different. I would recommend people to look up the Taming of the Shrew's plot summary, in order to enjoy the book better. Jun 15, Jana rated it really liked it Shelves: It was both entertaining and painful to watch the unfolding of Kathryn becoming Kate.
I felt so sorry for her most of the time, even though I didn't like her personality very much in the beginning; she was a miserable thing, but I loved how she changed near the end. Will and Kate are perfect for each other! Thank you, Netgalley and Maryanne Fantalis, for a digital copy of Finding Kate in exchange for my honest review. Mar 18, Nicole rated it liked it. I received this book from net galley for an honest review. This novel was a bit different from books I normally read. I have never read Taming of the Shrew, but this novel was a good read.
Kathryn is called a shrew by the people in her village. She always has a reply to something that is said and it is as if she is always "defending" herself. She is very clever, but feels her father cares more about her sister Blanche, than her. Her father will have Kathryn married first before Blanch I received this book from net galley for an honest review.
Her father will have Kathryn married first before Blanche can marry. Blanche is a rather selfish and conceited individual. She uses her wiles to entice men and likes to have attention on her. Sir William arrives and meets Blanche and Kathryn. Blanche believes William is for her, however, William seems to be more interested in Kathryn and even begins calling her Kate, which annoys her. Kathryn feels as though everyone is against her. William asks her father for Kate's hand in marriage but her father denies him and tries to give him Blanche, to which William refuses.
Eventually, Kate accepts his proposal but then William does not show at the church and Kate is hurt and embarrassed. William comes to her that night and takes her to his home. His attitude does a and Kate is treated poorly. She is upset and does not know how to handle this. In his own way, William is trying ti teach Kate a lesson about herself as well as doing the unexpected. Will Kate realize and understand what William is trying to do or will she live up to her title as a shrew? May 12, Jaime rated it really liked it. An enjoyable retelling of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.
I loved Kate's spunk and snarkiness, which I guess was considered shrewish back in those times. I felt bad that she had so much to deal with on the family end of things, the comparison to her younger, spoiled sister then having to deal with Will's ways. It starts off really well, then slows down and gets a bit off track but otherwise it was enjoyable. I love that, unlike the original, it is told from the female's point of view, so An enjoyable retelling of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.
I love that, unlike the original, it is told from the female's point of view, so you really get to see what was going on in her mind and heart. Enchanting The novel carries you back in time and puts you in the middle of a medieval village where you experience the life of the characters that are so well described that you feel you know them personally.

Tammy Rossitto rated it it was amazing May 05, Though he Publisher's Description: This is a delightful debut novel. The description tells us exactly what to expect with this retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. Even had I not read the description I would have recognized this tale for what it is, after all we have been regaled with many different versions of this tale. The characters are very well done recreations of the ones well remembered in the Shakespearean classic.
Kathryn is the perfect recreation of the shrew and Sir William of the love she is certain was bought for her by her father who simply wants to be rid of her. I gave this book 4. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have reviewed voluntarily.
