Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin | 5/23/2011

    " One of my favourite Shakespeare plays. I believe it's one of the foundations of the modern serial killer-type thriller with an anti-hero that you can't help but like.

    It's certainly dark, but not without some morbid wit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/21/2011

    " Not my favorite, but I did find Richard to be a fascinating character--even if he was quite evil. "

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

    " Here's what you need to know about Richard III:
    -he's the hunchbacked murderous one (as opposed to the Scottish murderous one)
    -begins with "Now is the winter of our discontent..."
    -ends with "my kingdom for a horse!"
    -it is worth your time reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 5/20/2011

    " Actually more like 3.5 for me. One of my favorites of the histories, but mostly the histories aren't my area. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 5/7/2011

    " It deserves repeating.

    Made him my book, wherein my soul recorded
    The history of all her secret thoughts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 4/19/2011

    " Not my favorite, but really, very good. One should expect nothing less from Shakespeare. I love that he so clearly shows how easily people can fall to evil and be corrupted and blinded by it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ke | 4/11/2011

    " The main character was well-developed. The presence of the children characters surprised me, in a good way.

    The female character didn't work for me. They seemed to have no agency. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 3/31/2011

    " Useful student edition of a great play. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 3/28/2011

    " I can't read Shakespeare without thinking of Sarah Palin refudiating things. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kienie | 3/24/2011

    " I was so confused while reading this play. Too many people named Henry, Edward and Elizabeth; too many side characters; too many allusions to the previous Henry/Richard plays. I have actually read those, but could never keep track of who's who. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 3/2/2011

    " Shakespeare succeeds where Hollywood so often fails: not only making the bad guy terrifically interesting, but also focusing on him as the main character without tempting us to sympathize with him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimmiie | 3/1/2011

    " A book I was forced to read for a school essay. It was pretty good though, but nothing new to expect when the two words combine : Shakespeare + Tragedy = everyone (well mostly everyone AND the main characters) dead. "

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.
