    " Rousing. Inspiring. I'd follow Henry into battle any day. "

    " I first read this in high school. I remember liking it then, but of course I got more out of it this time through. This is my favorite of all Shakespeare's histories (that I've read so far. I still have a few to go). Favorite lines: "I would give all my fame for a pot of ale and safety," and "If it be a sin to covet honor, I am the most offending soul alive." I found out this time through that the term "Band of Brothers" originated here. I like King Henry so much more in this play. He comes of age, is a great leader, but still finds time for shenanigans. "

    " While Midsummer Night's Dream is my favorite Shakespeare play, this easily takes the second place. The play and it's main chracter are so complex that every person who reads it will see the play differently. "

    " I did rather like this play of all his histories. "

    " well, carpe diem... "

    " 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. "

    " love shakespeare!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abigail Rasmussen | 1/15/2014

    " I read this one when I was 19 years old. You can get abridged versions of Shakespeare but I prefer the original. Sometimes it is helpful to get an edition that includes the original book on one side of the page and the story written in "easy to understand English" on the opposite page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 1/15/2014

    " Henry V had a couple (famously) grand monologues, and the French-to-English humor was pretty good. The Battle of Agincourt was well handled, with the leadup among the troops and the changing tides within the battle itself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Eshleman | 1/7/2014

    " Shakespeare's Henry V is one of the few characters in whom I can say both grace and valor jump off the page. This is an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicholas Armstrong | 12/23/2013

    " Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. Some good dialogue, and it is interesting to read about the equivalent of a war movie (i.e., patriotism) but in the Elizabethan era. Still, some of those speeches draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peacegal | 12/22/2013

    " 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 Saadiq | 12/6/2013

    " This new edition of a timeless drama puts the feeling into Shakespeare's lines. The play chronicles a short, but influential episode in King Henry the Fifth of England, as he attempted (and succeeded) in gaining the French throne. This tale of action and love fascinated me and I enjoyed reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whitney | 11/27/2013

    " Pretty much the most inspiring play ever. I used to recite lines from this to myself on the way to school to screw up my courage (I know, another play). "Now set the teeth, and stretch the nostrils wide..." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Piper | 10/14/2013

    " Has some of my favorite Shakespeare lines! Henry sure had a way with words. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 9/27/2013

    " A history play with some great speeches, but, yawn. The battle scenes are interesting, but then again, I have Kenneth Branagh to thank for that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hayley | 9/16/2013

    " The St. Crispin's Day Speech is definitely one of my favorites in Shakespeare's canon. It's so good, in fact, it even makes an appearance in the movie "Independence Day"...ah, Bill Pullman at his finest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy Hacker | 1/31/2013

    " Beautiful - my favourite Shakespeare; unleash the dogs of war!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dandelion | 11/27/2012

    " This is the best history play I've ever read in my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Florin Pitea | 7/30/2012

    " I liked it - but I missed Falstaff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kindle-aholic | 6/7/2012

    " 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. "

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.
