"Midsummer's Bottom delights with Shakespearian couplets and a cacophony of human foibles that smash up to a satisfying ending. Dash has created a stellar cast of full, engaging characters. Tightly-written and imaginative, Midsummer's Bottom glides the reader through a wonderful story towards a rewarding, and unexpected, end." Self-Publishing Review.
"Midsummer's Bottom is a delightful book with the lyrical words of the bard and the theme of his magical work intertwined into the story line. Mr Dash is an accomplished wordsmith and brings the chaos to the sort of satisfying finale that, had I been in a theatre, I would have stood to applaud." Readers' Favorite (Charles Remington) -- 5 star review.
"Dash's signature wit and humor shine on every page... magical escapism at its best... Midsummer's Bottom is a laugh out loud comedy, a rollicking romp that will leave you with a warm, satisfied feeling long after you finish." Rachel Hobbs, author -- 5 star review.
"Darren Dash has masterfully combined Shakespeare's style and greatness with his own amazing poetic agility to create an absolutely delightful tale that will make you laugh until you cry. I was skeptical of a 'retread' of Shakespeare, but this is very cleverly done and quite entertaining. Bravo!" Readers' Favorite (Melinda Hills) -- 5 star review.
"I loved the diversity. Bisexual, gay, questioning, straight, cross-dressing: there was a little of everything in this small cast, and the representation without shame, without it feeling forced, was wonderful. Midsummer's Bottom is engaging, humorous, and intricately woven." Kelly Smith Reviews -- 5 star review.
"Whimsical, touching, witty... Midsummer's Bottom warmed my heart and confirmed one thought in my mind, that was a distant whisper until now -- Darren Dash can do anything." The Literary Connoisseur.
