    " I know this book provokes a lot of criticism these days because of its apparantly sexist overtones, but the writing in this play is brilliant. The attitudes themselves, of course, reflect those of Shakespeare's day and the whole plot is based on premise we would consider degrading. Nonetheless, I found it very funny when I first read it, several years ago and still enjoy it today. "

    " Went to a stage play in High school. Both were not to my liking, the book or the play. Same goes with most of Shakespeare- I did not see the purpose of reading them at the time. Now I still don't like them. "
