Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 2/12/2014

    " I liked this book better than the other books I had to read for Honors English. This is a really fun and exciting play. I would read it just for fun if i wanted to! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jihan | 2/3/2014

    " The play is fine; not crazy about this translation "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Filitsa | 1/30/2014

    " This is my most favorite play of all times! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee | 1/27/2014

    " A friend gave me a copy of this book. He said he has read it a thousand times... A story of chivalry and love.... I had never read it nor did I know the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Baptist | 1/25/2014

    " One of my all time favorites. Haven't read it in a while, and it is due for a visit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Errol | 1/15/2014

    " I thought it was pretty funny. As far as I know there's no hidden political message. The character (Cyrano) is pretty outspoken and has a lot of panache until the very end of the play. I think there's a considerable amount of brooding to do about self-confidence, beauty, and self image after reading this one. I recommend it for anyone looking for a good laugh but at the same time wanting to learn a bit more themselves and the world (especially French history). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Marie | 1/14/2014

    " Now I want to see "Roxanne" again! This is a great translation of a classic play. Very funny! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hayley Brunner | 1/9/2014

    " Funny and a far easier read than my previous, A Tale of Two Cities. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 1/1/2014

    " One of my favorite romances, where the girl is pretty and smart, and the hero is intelligent, witty, and truly noble (almost foolishly so). Boys, the balcony scene is where it's at, let me tell ya! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mpho Majozi | 12/1/2013

    " I read this book in school years ago and it made me fall in love with the power of words and love itself. Communication is key to getting what you want. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 11/14/2013

    " Roxanne was more relatable, given it being written so much more contemporarily. Plus, it had 100% more Steve Martin, which is never amiss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 11/7/2013

    " Absolutely FABULOUS. By far the best thing I have read in a very long time. I would read this again in a heartbeat. Very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 H | 9/23/2013

    " A classic that must be liked. I find myself identifying with the lead--highly charming, lovable, yet insanely hideous--and engrossed in all the swashbuckling action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Myers | 9/2/2013

    " Beautiful..and interesting...many parodies and movies can be attributed to this work. Fun to read, a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Chai | 7/10/2013

    " =) good play. i think it's this author's one hit wonder. my students loved reading about a rebel who doesn't care about what others think of him. it's a light read. very simple and humorous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arlene | 6/26/2013

    " This book is unlike the movie,the author really took his characters through another level. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 3/14/2013

    " I wish I'd been in the right place at the right time when the play was being performed. I figure that if just reading the script moved me to tears, the play would've done me in for good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will Boncher | 2/2/2013

    " Very interesting, one of the weirder plays I've ever read. Martyrdom at its finest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Siria | 12/26/2012

    " I just love this play, so much that I've never find any adaptation more that barely satisfying. By the age of 13 I knew it by heart. Rostand's Cyrano is the incarnation of panache. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Salvatore | 12/4/2012

    " Incredible stuff. I can't believe I was taken by the ending! Amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shomeret | 7/27/2012

    " This classic is one of my all time favorites. I love Cyrano's panache and the duel in which he is writing a ballade. It's also interesting that Cyrano was an actual historical personage who wrote science fiction. I've been to see two productions of this play and I'd gladly see more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ava | 5/26/2012

    " I hadn't had high hopes for this book, since plays can be a little bit of a dry read, but I was happily surprised. The story of Cyrano is just as good read as it is watched, and doesn't lose as much of it's spark in written form like most stage performances. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielle | 4/4/2012

    " Yes, I read this in French. In High School. I was a nerd. Am a nerd. Whatever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lily | 11/24/2011

    " This was great! So clever and witty, and a real gem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 11/8/2011

    " A play that I enjoyed more than any Shakespeare I've read. This one was both entertaining and profound. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 9/8/2011

    " I've actually read both a French and English version, one of the most romantic and sad stories of all time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 6/17/2011

    " Cyrano de Bergerac (Dover Thrift Editions) by Edmond Rostand (2000) "

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

    " Listened to this on a road trip. I need to try reading it... not a good "listen." Love the story of Cyrano though. *sigh* Great tragedy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maddie | 5/16/2011

    " Hehe, great witty lines. Good play. Even pretty profound at turns.
    Kind of Napoleon Complex for the nose?
    Read this after watching the movie in French class with Madam DelGuiduce. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 5/4/2011

    " I absolutely love the story of Cyrano and Roxane. Sword fighting, poetry, insults and unrequited love. Nothing better! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhya | 4/16/2011

    " Yes, it is a melodrama, but only in the most awesome way. This is probably my favorite love story of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dulce | 4/13/2011

    " just because you are ugly on the outside doesn't mean you have to critisize someone by their looks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 4/7/2011

    " I've always had a soft spot for this play, even though Cyrano is a frustratingly stubborn character to the bitter end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/2/2011

    " One of my all-time favorites! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 4/1/2011

    " Not sure if this was the translation I read or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A.E. | 3/16/2011

    " Think you have a nose for witty plays with poignant romance? Read this one.

    A Certified Hate-Free Review (TM). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Javier | 3/14/2011

    " Proof that fantasy and idealism can be based in reality and produce a work of art that is enjoyable and continues to cross time and culture barriers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel | 2/13/2011

    " Funny and sad. With so many characters it is a hard one to read aloud in class, but Cyrano is such a great character it is impossible not to. Especially great for high school, where I think that mix of pride and self disgust rings so true. Now if I can just figure out how to teach it well... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 2/4/2011

    " When i first looked at this book i thought "oh no. i'm completely gonna be bored and hate it." But loved it and cyrano is now my dream man. "
