In the iconic film by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, teenaged Marty McFly travels back in time from the 1980s to the 1950s, changing the path of his parents' destiny . . . as well as his own. Now fans of the movie can journey back even further - to the 16th century, when the Bard of Avon unveils his latest masterpiece: William Shakespeare's Get Thee Back to the Future! Every scene and line of dialogue from the hit movie is re-created with authentic Shakespearean rhyme, meter, and stage directions. This reimagining also includes jokes and Easter eggs for movie fans, from Huey Lewis call-outs to the inner thoughts of Einstein (the dog). By the time you've finished reading, you'll be convinced that Shakespeare had a time-traveling DeLorean of his own, speeding to our era so he could pen this time-tossed tale.

An absolute blast!

This book is an absolute blast to read. Author Ian Doescher's level of Shakespearean expertise is impressive as he perfectly mimics the Bard's style of writing. The adaptation of "Back to the Future" to Shakespeare is incredibly fun, starting with Marty's opening monologue in which he expresses his desire for a better life, describes his relationship with Doc, and hilariously describes Doc's lab seen in the opening shots of the film. One of my favorite lines comes from the scene in the film in which George first confronts Biff in the car, and Biff gets a look down Lorraine's dress. The film has Biff saying "Well lookie what we have here," but here he says "Zounds! Look what is herein- a treasure chest." The book is full of really fun translations like that. I strongly recommend it.
