    " One of Shakespeare's historical plays. It dealt with an area of history I had been unfamiliar with, and so it was very intriguing. And I liked the interpretation that our class discussed: all that he did was to fight for and win the woman he loved. Shakespeare is such a softy! "

    " it's shakespeare -- how can i not give it four stars? "

    " I liked it a lot, the story is interesting and I liked the characters. I had trouble with the long, drawn out speeches that King Harry gives on every other page, without those it would have been really fun. I also did not really like the ending. Shakespeare presents it in such a way that, if I were in the audience (obviously I am thinking too 21st century but whatever) in his time period, (or especially if I were one of the soldiers in Henry's army) I would have felt extremely shafted about the war. It just seems too, "Well, we have been easily taking over France [in Shakespeare's depiction, not actual history], people have died and sacrificed their lives for their country so that we can . . .wait. . .that chick is HOT! This war is over, I'm taking me a wife and going home! [and all the sacrifice for nothing]". I would probably enjoy watching this on stage or in a film a lot, but I wouldn't read it again on my own any time soon. "

    " OK graphic novel adaptation of Shakespeare's classic. The illustrations are serviceable if generic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abeille | 1/28/2014

    " I hadn't read this play in years, and was happy to find it much as I remembered it. It's not my favorite of Shakespeare's plays, and I suspect it's elevated in my esteem largely due to Henry's speech before the Battle of Agincourt ("We few, we happy few, we band of brothers..."). I'm on a mission to acquaint my sons with Shakespeare and I'm reading through my shortlist of plays before we embark this summer. I will confess that I found the comedic sections of this play confusing, and will need to go through those scenes again to puzzle them out. Book #46 in the Book a Week in 2012 Challenge from the #WTM boards. "

    " Fabulous. Love the St. Crispin's Day speech. "

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

    " Rousing and thought-provoking play. In my quest to read more Shakespeare, I read this, then I read another play, then I read this, then another play, then this...I'll never read all of Shakespeare. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/4/2014

    " not "made" to read it. just plain enjoy reading shakespeare. "

    " My favorite of the King Henry plays. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Will Boncher | 11/23/2013

    " Not very exciting. War with France, pretty boring. Only thing that gave it two stars was the hilarious scene with Pistol and the leeks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 9/23/2013

    " I love the Bard's historical dramas. This one's one of the best. Henry's speech on the even of Agincourt, of course, is among Shakespeare's best known. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Spencer | 7/25/2013

    " It's Shakespeare so by default it gets a high rating. I appreciated some of the lighter moments in the play. One thing I liked about this edition is the commentary that is included. Definitely made it easier to get a grasp on the play and to appreciate all that was going on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Jackson | 4/30/2013

    " I've never read one of Shakespeare's historical plays, but after I found a good pace, I found it a great read. Having knowledge of this time period helped to place the various events. "

    " My second favorite Shakespeare play. So awesome! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lenna | 11/11/2011

    " One of the more violent kings of england. But it does make me pine for a king who can exhort me to go to war rather than stumble over his own pre-written speech. "

    " too much French. "

    " I read this only a couple years ago, and I don't remember much about it. I guess it didn't make that big of an impression. Didn't love it, didn't hate it - neutral. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/27/2011

    " *Read for school*

    Started out not sure what to think, but ended up loving it. Brilliantly written play, and I loved a lot of the speeches in it.

    It's really long though. Took a long time to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kindle-aholic | 1/3/2011

    " Hands down my favorite historic play by Shakespeare. Very dramatic, with a young king still coming to grips with what he has had to give up to be king, and what he must do to cement his leadership. Fantastic quotes - so many memorable lines.

    "

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

    " Ok, so, originally i thought it was okay. Then, I watched the movie where Lockhart played as Hal, and Trewlany as the princess, and I LOVED IT. SO MUCH INTRIGUE! "

    " This portrayal of the king has to be one of the most powerful study in character in all of WS's work. My favorite play. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
