    " The introduction of the future Henry V, seen here as Prince Hal, and Sir John Falstaff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/5/2014

    " My first audiobook. I anticipate a blog post about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Salt_god | 1/30/2014

    " Falstaff is without doubt the most "interesting" character created by William Shakespeare "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 RK Byers | 1/13/2014

    " couldn't wait for the old buzzard to die. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adriana | 1/9/2014

    " Power struggles, patriarchal disputes, loss of innocence, and death--what's not to like? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/9/2014

    " Not my favourite, but I enjoy Falstaff's 'What is honour?' speech. It's definitely worth looking up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 12/28/2013

    " It's a history in Early Modern English, enough said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 12/27/2013

    " I have to see the play. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tyler | 11/27/2013

    " Perhaps the most boring play I've ever read by Shakespeare. Couldn't stand it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danny | 11/11/2013

    " Great stuff. Check out CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT for Orson Welles as Falstaff. One of his best films. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 10/29/2013

    " Falstaff totally makes the play. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joella | 9/20/2013

    " This play confused me so much. It was so hard to keep track of who was who and who was who's son, etc. Definitely one of my least favorite Shakespeare plays. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charly | 4/28/2012

    " Read before seeing the play "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Egerer | 4/6/2012

    " Wow -- my favorite play thus far. It felt so... alive; and by the time I read John Falstaff's manifesto of cowardice, I absolutely fell in love with it. Tragic ending, powerful and lovable characters, highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Klarissa | 3/22/2012

    " Amazing. The theme of honor is developed so perfectly and I wish I could see an actual production of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 alison | 12/20/2011

    " Okay, I realize how ridiculous it is to be blown away by Shakespeare (like all of a sudden "discovering" that the Beatles wrote great pop songs), but ever since I read this play, I can't stop applying it to everything in my life...especially politics. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 12/2/2011

    " Pretty ambivalent towards it. Color me uncultured. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa (Harmonybites) | 10/1/2011

    " The play that introduces Falstaff and Prince Hal, the first one of Shakespeare's richest comic creations and the second one of his most complex heroes. "

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

    " Falstaff... and his idea of death and honor is the most profound thing in the play. That's why the Queen loved his character so much. "

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

    " This is obviously a 5 and by far my favorite so far of the histories, but I fear I have much more learning and rereading to do before I can officially change its ranking and fully articulate why. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 5/9/2011

    " My favorite Shakespeare play, it combines adventure, comedy, history, and tragedy together to form one of Shakespeare's broadest reaching plays. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 4/21/2011

    " Good story though I didn't like Sir John! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Guy | 3/8/2011

    " This play was so dull that we actually gave up reading it in my Sophomore year High School English class because even Mr. McConnell was bored of it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mike | 2/28/2011

    " The small size and muddy color do not help this revamped Classics Illustrated (now packaged and marketed as a study cheat) succeed. Another problem, some characters look too much alike to be esaily distinguishable. A misfire. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 12/24/2010

    " I'll be honest--I saw Henry IV at the Globe Theater fall 2010 season and their production blew me away. The relationship between Hal and Falstaff had to be one of the most convincing on stage friendships I've ever seen. Marvelous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 12/20/2010

    " Falstaff... and his idea of death and honor is the most profound thing in the play. That's why the Queen loved his character so much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 10/6/2010

    " Was ok, had to read it for a college class. Not a big Shakespeare fan but it was ok :-) "
