    " I guess it isn't fair that I'm three-starring this because I find Nora and the choices she make to be so irritating - Ibsen was clearly trying to spark discussion and interpretation, and he did just that. The thing is, though, the only way this blew my mind was in rage at Nora. "

    " Had to read for a literature class, it was alright. "

    " I feel that a Doll's House, even though the Ibsen said there were no feminist views, was directed and biased toward women. I feel this way because of the way that Ibsen portrays Torvald and then Nora's reaction to the way he treats her. In the end of the book, Torvald finds the letter that Krogstad put in the mailbox, and he goes off on Nora telling her how it will ruin his reputation and what not, and that she is a stupid little woman. He also repeatedly calls her his "little skylark" which is very condescending because it puts him superior to Nora. "

    " Read it for theatre class but have to read it over so that it can sink in. "

    " Hadn't read it in a long time, and decided to re-read through the Gutenberg project. I'm not quite sure why we were all forced to read it, besides being a period piece about a vapid woman who miraculously discovers herself. It's dull, unrealistic and boring, even if you place it in your head to be in the same time. But I suppose it's still better than some of the stuff they forced us to read. "

    " read this play in high school years ago and it made a huge impression on me. i forgot about it until i was going through the "books every woman should read list" - i concur that this is a book (play) every woman should read. bravo to ms. clemons my senior year hs english teacher for teaching this. "

    " i think this was a very controversial play at that time because of the ideas it presents. "

    " this is a realistic play written in the 1800's. this play was shocking to most of europe because it is a book based on how marrigae fails. Nora the wife seems to be a "Bimbo" but really is an intelligent woman. she does what she has to inorder to save her family and her husband. "

    " It's been fun to read this with seniors. I've always read it with 10th graders before, and they don't have the context to understand Nora or the jokes. This time, students have just laughed as we were reading. Nice! "

    " I was very suprised by how much I enjoyed this story. It really encompassed my views on what women should do if they are in an abusive relationship; stand up for themselves. I liked the amount of drama and tension throughout the story and it made me want to keep on reading. "
