review 1: I took away one star because I honestly thought Cordelia would turn out to be alive. I mean, Othello and Desdemona faked their deaths, and it just such a cliche that her death is what drives Pocket. And then at the end she conveniently shows up as a ghost to bless him moving on with Jessica! Also, note that Othello gets to show up at the end--not that he does anything interesting--but Desdemona stays off-page. So annoying!
review 2: Moore brings the main character from "Fool" to Venice in this mash-up of "The Merchant of Venice," "Othello," and (as I discovered in the afterword) "The Cask of Montillado." (SP?)
