    " I will admit that I was not so in love with this play. It just isn't as good as part one, and though the final scene is definitely one of the most devastating not just in Shakespeare but in theater, it felt like a lot of the Hal/Falstaff relationship got ignored in the rest of the play to make room for drunk slapstick. And not that there's not a lot of good to be had in drunk slapstick, but with Hal not even showing up until Act 2 scene 2, it felt unfocused. After part 1, I think there was enough history for half a play, which meant that this play feels like it has a lot of filler. Also, since one of the play's major theme is aging and dying, it has a melancholy throughout that makes it not a fun read. Good, not my favorite. "

    " See my review of Henry IV, part one. Same idea. Fabulous. Must read before reading Henry V. "

    " I liked that this was a completely different aspect than pt. 1- instead of focusing on the heroics and battle, it focused on the politics and drama of the time period. "

    " Again, read up on the actual history before reading the play. I also found it helpful to read some of the explanations on Sparknotes as a companion to understand the character of Prince Hal (turned King Henry) and the complicated nature of his character. "
