    " Overall, I wasn't particularly impressed with this book. The online description made it sound more interesting than it was. Granted, it is an excellent way to quickly come to grips with the basic plots of most of Shakespeare's plays. However, I can think of better ways to learn about Shakespeare than to read a collection of longwinded summaries. Worth a look but not that great in the end. "

    " This book was a good introduction to some of the plays I haven't read yet and a good review of those I have studied. "

    " Even though this was written for children a couple of centuries ago I would recommend it for young adults and anyone who would like to understand Shakespeare better. Charles Lamb retold the tragedies and his sister Mary reold the comedies. They did a superb job of telling the stories including some of Shakespeare's original. I've read that Lamb revived the popularity of Shakespeare in the early 1800s. "
