    " Refreshing. Wonderfully spooky and quirky. "

    " I was presently surprised when I was given this play to read for my English class, usually I find it extremely hard to get into any of the texts that I have previously studied but straight away I was caught up in this play. It's like CSI way back in 1912. Usually with crime and mystery texts I can guess at the ending however there was so much thought and twists in this play that I cold not have guessed the ending. Overall this is an amazingly well thought out play that I would love to see in theatres and I am extremely glad that my English teacher chose this text to study. "

    " The book was as poor in some parts. In my GCSE I have to study this book so I have found that one of the aims of this book, was for the author to teach a lesson about responsibility to the audience of the book or play which it has been made into but I have not learned that lesson because of the reason that I do not believe that amny of the characters are actually responsible for the death of Eva Smith such as Gerald and Mrs Birling. The character of the Inspector which was meant to be the mouthpiece for the author really annoyed me in this book and I would not recommend it. "

    " I must re-read this one, I remember it had a huge impact on me at school - the only play I remember, great tale and moral. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey Gigg | 1/22/2014

    " A fantastic piece of writing- one of my favorite plays. Full of twists which keep you guessing throughout. Seeing it performed just increased my appreciation of this play. A definate must read and try and see this play performed if possible. "

    " A magnificent play tackling man's responsibility towards others in society .. Humanistic to the utmost .. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ush | 1/19/2014

    " Got interested in writing plays when I read this one in HS. Remember reading out loud in my room and making funny voices for each character...*facepalm*...think my mother thought I was going barking mad! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina Lickorish | 1/5/2014

    " So pleasantly surprised by this. I was expecting it to be trite and boring as I have to teach it for GCSE. I actually rather liked it! "

    " extremely boring, despise of it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Martin | 12/27/2013

    " A wonderful play that centres on a murder mystery which disrupts an innocent family dinner party. It made me smile to see my name and old class written on the inside-cover of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Thomas | 12/20/2013

    " Its okay, but i guess its better in play form "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aira | 12/14/2013

    " Quite like how the theme of what goes around comes around is played around a lot in here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma (Passion for Novels) | 12/13/2013

    " I read this as part of my work experience as this is what the kids were learning about. I found I got through it really quickly and it was a really enjoyable play to read. I loved finding out about the scandals of each character keenly forced out by the inspector... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aamirah | 12/9/2013

    " I never really expected the book to end like it did. It's a wonderful book in a really disturbing way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tirza Horvath | 12/9/2013

    " I've read it in class, it has a great message but I didn't like the story... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma Goodwin | 11/14/2013

    " I had to read this for my GCSE's and it really enjoyed it. I don't usually have the patience for pre 1950s literature but this kept me interested. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Serena | 5/14/2013

    " Awful. Terrible. I hated it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jack | 4/17/2013

    " It was good, although I'm not a fan of plays and have to read it for school so... Forced reading lets it down a bit :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Letitia | 11/13/2012

    " Should be done far more often and taken to heart! Beautifully crafted to expose the little, selfish ways we slowly destroy those we deem "beneath us." The end lacks some bite and closure that keeps me from giving it 5 stars, but still a worthwhile read or night at the theatre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sacha | 6/21/2012

    " What a delightful read to just make you stop and think! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felicity | 3/1/2012

    " A fantastic play which makes fun of society for refusing to help others less well off. The characters are fantastically portrayed and end in an ironic twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xander | 1/10/2012

    " Wow, this play was more than I could've asked for to study at GCSE. It's a complex tale with a lot of mystery and intrigue and it keeps you on the edge, and keeps you interested with it's plot twists. I'm seriously glad we got to study this, and I just hope I know it enough for the exam! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duncan | 10/25/2011

    " This is a wonderful story. It never ceases to surprise me. The actors can give full flow to tehir talents, and the audiences go home wondering what did happen there? Just as it should be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jihad | 8/24/2011

    " GREAT IF YOU LIKE MYSTERY BOOKS WITH A GOOD STORY LINE!!!!! "
