    " One of my favorite Shakespeare plays. I love Benedick and Beatrice. Their witty conversations are really funny. "

    " A fun book. I like Beatrice and Benedick. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn Affuso | 2/2/2014

    " Fantastic. Comedy. Romance. Drama. Tragedy. Take a leap and read this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phoebe Thatcher | 2/2/2014

    " Among the best of W. Shake's comedies. Full of wit, snark, implausible marriages, a couple musical numbers and some emotional stuff to keep the stakes high. What sets it apart is the underlying messages about love, and the very strong lady characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Wright | 1/16/2014

    " This is a perfect play. I don't think there's much more to say. Dogberry is hilarious and Beatrice and Benedick are sublime. Their characters are a vast improvement on whoever those chumps were in Love's Labours Lost. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gloria | 12/19/2013

    " This is my absolute favorite by Shakespeare! My apologies to Romeo and Juliet, you guys do tragic romance pretty well andare the basis of every good romance ever written since, but I'm a sucker for this comedy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 12/7/2013

    " Other than having to have a dictionary by my side through most of the play, it was incredibly hilarious and so fun to read. I loved hearing what a sense of humor sounded like in the late 1500's! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla | 5/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ayan Scratuglia | 4/27/2013

    " The main idea is that a man has no way to know if his wife is faithful and therefore women can take full advantage of that fact. A comedy with a happy ending, after lots of situations and changes ... "

    " I actually read the play after I had seen Kenneth Branaugh's movie version, but I loved the play just the same. The story is clever and entertaining, with several twists and turns, and a happy ending to boot. "

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.
