    " What a great and entertaining story! Absolutely loved it. And it is even easier than The Tempest - or am I just getting used to the Shakespeare language?? Awesome play. Fantastic characters. Just really, really enjoyable! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 2/10/2014

    " This was pretty good for a old book! (i read it in 7th grade) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda Leigh | 2/6/2014

    " The play was cute. I liked the fairies, but it really lacked substance. The more Shakespeare I read the less I like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlin | 2/4/2014

    " One of my personal favorite plays. The Elizabethan humor of this play is still pertinent today and still speaks about the fickleness of love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/26/2014

    " Far more enjoyable without the pressure of Mr. Howe demanding us to ask questions about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 1/10/2014

    " One of the only Shakespeare plays I really, truly love. (I know, I know, I'm a terrible English major.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aprile | 1/4/2014

    " I didn't actually read this particular edition, but "Amazon Kindle Free Edition" wasn't exactly listed. Before reading this play on my kindle, I had never read a Shakespeare play just for fun on my own. For the other times, it was always for a class. I shook my head when I heard about my classmates who read Shakespeare for fun, and did this more than once! Long story short, I was searching for free books for my kindle on Amazon, and I found A Midsummer Night's Dream. I enjoyed it thoroughly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mia | 1/1/2014

    " This was my first Shakespeare book and I actually liked it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ashleigh | 12/25/2013

    " I throughly enjoyed the name's of the fairies throughout this book. Shakespeare is a genius. "

    " Bahan kuliah Pak Ono sepertinya. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Molina | 12/13/2013

    " again, i liked this play, but hs killed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 11/27/2013

    " Since I only read The Metamorphoses a couple of days ago I rather enjoyed the Midsummer Night's Dream's version of Pyramus and Thisbe, it's nice to see how older works are re-interpreted (even, or perhaps: especially, if as clumsily as these players do it). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maher | 11/21/2013

    " The funniest Shakespeare play written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqueline | 11/12/2013

    " Uno dei miei libri preferiti di Shakespeare!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 9/11/2013

    " I love Shakespeare's comedies :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 5/7/2013

    " I felt like I practically knew the play after all of the myriad of references and quotations that other genres have used from Midsummer Night's Dream. It still keeps in magic, despite having been over-referenced in some cases. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gordon | 12/31/2012

    " Very disappointing. This is comedy? I only laughed twice (at the misuse of big words by one of the "actors" in the play-within-the-play, which was also mildly amusing in its good-natured bumbling). But as for the main plot: petty, not funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Princesscj1989 | 12/20/2012

    " Wow, I got lost in this. A book with love and fairies I love it. "

    " wonderful childish and enchanting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ella Brunton | 3/28/2012

    " Interesting, a bit confusing at times, but thats to be expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ria | 1/26/2012

    " I loved it! I am excited that we are performing it in our Shakespeare class! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor | 10/20/2011

    " I thought this was a really fun play! My professor provided a feminist reading for it, and I found that take to be pretty interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzie | 9/10/2011

    " Acted in it. (Titania) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelumiel Delos Santos | 7/5/2011

    " A magical and light love story with humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cecily | 5/23/2011

    " this book is hilarious! this entire play expresses Shakespeare's imagination as a writer; the play is extremely delightful by all of the chaos that was created especially when the fairies intervened! i loved it! my fave character was Nick Bottom and Robin! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 5/22/2011

    " This is absolutely my favorite Shakespeare play, as those of you who read my novel, Hanging On, might already know. The movie rocked, too, and not just because it had Michelle Pfeiffer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/21/2011

    " An amusing read, and proof that Shakespeare could write in so many different styles and subjects. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 5/20/2011

    " As with Twelfth Night, I've seen this in a few too many amateur productions. But still. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie | 5/17/2011

    " I prefer post modern literature, didn't he get flunkies to write half his stuff? hmm "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonya | 5/17/2011

    " Tragedy ages better than comedy. Blasphemy, I know. It's Shakespeare, but still. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trissy | 5/16/2011

    " this is my fav play love it!!! "

    " It had a few parts in it that made me laugh. It's just so hard to understand Shakespeare lol. That's why I gave it a little lower of a rating. But it was still good. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
