    " A play in which nothing happens, only its not even a good way in which nothing happens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stefania | 2/11/2014

    " I had to read this for literature class, but I had seen the movie based on it before so I enjoyed the reading of this one. It is funny and I love the characters of professor Higgins and Eliza. I also love that they are not together at the end,because I really thing they are not made for each other. They could be friends forever but never lovers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Pellicci | 2/7/2014

    " The original is better than the popular version. My opinion. Except the music was fun in the musical... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trace | 2/7/2014

    " Very good. Still like Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Cavalier | 1/8/2014

    " Surprisingly witty and feminist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 1/6/2014

    " I read this circa 1992 in Cape May. It seems to me I had seen part of the movie/play at some point that I was reminded of as I read it. It's a rags to riches story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina Hanchett | 12/12/2013

    " I read this when I was 12 or younger. It is timeless and classic. I love the storyline. When I got older, I watched "My Fair Lady" and to this day, it is definitely still one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 12/10/2013

    " Loved the story, the wit, the quirky characters. One thing that drives me crazy is the inconclusive ending. But, that's the pull. Everyone can decide their own happy ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Badri | 12/7/2013

    " One of the greatest writer ever...Truly amazing to read... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 10/27/2013

    " Really liked this one, it's especially interesting to me as a speech-language pathologist! The ending left me somewhat unsatisfied, though!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 8/20/2013

    " Don't settle for just "My Fair Lady", read the original "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 3/19/2013

    " So much better than the film. Partly because THE ENDING IS DIFFERENT, and partly because Shaw is an excellently grumpy, witty, brilliant person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Unwin | 2/5/2013

    " Really enjoyed this original story, however the movie and music make the story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dusty | 1/25/2013

    " Well, I was supposed to read this in college. But didn't. Until ... I decided to teach it to high school kids. They loved it. And I did, too. Except for the unnecessary (IMO) "sequel" Shaw includes to clear up the beautiful but apparently unintentional ambiguity at the end of Act V. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reanne Malett | 1/23/2013

    " A good early text where you learn to appreciate dialogue! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jessicamax stein | 12/1/2012

    " also a fun read. book two of my transformation syllabus. and then we're going to watch my fair lady with audrey hepburn! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah ✌ | 9/26/2012

    " I normally hate the plays or novels that we study in my English class. But this was one of those that I actually didn't mind. It was fairly funny, and the storyline was interesting once I got into it. It was a really cool idea, actually. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicki | 7/30/2012

    " It was great, but I kept comparing it to "My Fair Lady" (which I have seen many many times)and I liked the movie ending way better than the book ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lillian | 10/21/2011

    " Four words: I NEED MORE SHAW. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilary | 8/31/2011

    " The first play I ever read, and one that was accessible even to a youngster, Pygmalion has something for everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candice Hill | 6/29/2011

    " So much better than the movie! Though it is a rags to riches play, Shaw manages to make it real. Love Professor Higgins! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bells | 5/21/2011

    " Very entertaining! I would love to see this play preformed :) Higgins was so annoying and yet interesting at the same time. And Eliza. Well, she was very similar to Higgins. Not as annoying though. She was great. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 5/14/2011

    " My experience of this book would have generated a full five star review if it hadn't been colored by so many knock offs. Hollywood and pulp fiction have spun the rags to riches to rags tale so many times. Still, I love the way Shaw rips into hypocrisies and no level of society is safe. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tess | 5/11/2011

    " Hate this forever thanks to Mrs Deignan's English classes "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 5/7/2011

    " We read this book out loud in English class and it was really fun! The characters are hilarious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 4/28/2011

    " Fairly different from My Fair Lady...I may have enjoyed his ending notes more than the actual play. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathleen | 4/24/2011

    " I thought this was a really stupid book. Don't remember why. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 4/24/2011

    " Hahahaha...this book is humorous and made me laugh so much! The witty banter, Eliza's fascinating manners, Mr. Higgins ruff ways, and the other characters that give color to this play make it a lot of fun to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Takim | 4/10/2011

    " This is one of the few plays I read and I liked it. It was hilarious at times and I think shaw has great insight into the psychology of men and women and how certain relationships really work. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bryan | 3/23/2011

    " A play in which nothing happens, only its not even a good way in which nothing happens. "

About the Author
Author George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950), Irish-born playwright, critic, and political activist, began his writing career in London. In addition to writing sixty-three plays, his prodigious output as critic, pamphleteer, and essayist influenced numerous social issues. In 1925, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature and in 1938 an Oscar for the movie version of Pygmalion.
