    " They call this one a "problem play" and I certainly agree. Not a satisfying ending in sight, which is kind of disappointing because I actually cared about the characters. "

    " There's no catharsis at the end of this one and yet it's one of the most powerful reads I've ever encountered. Had an embarrassingly visceral reaction to it. Possibly the best example (can't say for certain since I haven't read his entire opus yet) of Shakespeare's mastery of human nature. I'll just remain here on the floor for a while, drowning in awe and feelings, thanks. "

    " A promising work by one of England's brightest new voices. "

    " Measure for Measure was fun to read but at times a bit confusing. Maybe if I better understood 17th century laws it would have made more sense. I also have a problem when Shakespeare has a character among his own people but in disguise. You can't tell me that no one would recognize them or their voice. There was a fun moment that made me think of Downton Abbey when a character was listening to a private conversation. Things wrapped up a little too neatly at the end, but I still liked it. "
