    " I LOVE THIS STORY!!!! I was stage manager in this play!! What we focused on was how bullying connected to the story of Romeo and Juliet. Like how Tybalt and his group just beat up and killed for fun. Personally my favorite part in this play was Queen Mab's speech. The actor for Mercutio was magnificent in this play. I hope all of you enjoy the script! And if you think Romeo and Juliet is AMAZING tell me your favorite quote!! "

    " I'm not romantic enough, I hate the exaggeration in the story, I tried reading it in the original text but I continued in modern text starting from Act III .. anyway I'll try to read it again later, maybe I'll love and feel this over-dramatic story. "

    " Basically, Romeo and Juliet is a book directly based in Compton, Los Angeles in the 80's, during the crack epidemic. Romeo, a crip, and Juliet, a blood, fall in love with each other after the NWA Block Party, which Romeo went to in order to meet his old girlfriend, Rosaline. Their forbidden love causes many problems, with accidental drive by shootings and tongue in cheek humor inserted multiple times. Romeo accidentally shoots Juliet's set leader because the set leader, Tybalt, accidentally killed Mercutio Loc, a member in Romeo's set. After the heat tries to get at Romeo, the leader of the neighborhood church arranges to fake Juliet's death in order to let Romeo and Juliet live in San Francisco. The plan goes wrong, with Romeo not getting the message, who then kills Juliet's other boyfriend and commit's suicide in grief. Juliet subsequently then commits suicide after discovering Romeo's body. The crips and bloods then reconcile and merge their gangs in order to fight the latin kings who are coming to Los Angeles. In summary, okay book with predictable plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany Blodgett | 1/14/2012

    " Sorry, couldn't give this one anything better. The verbiage is too frustrating and *spoiler* They die at the end. No one should want to be Romeo and Juliet. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zach Eisner | 7/6/2011

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bridget | 5/23/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 5/23/2011

    " I re-read Romeo and Juliet before I taught it to 9th graders this quarter. It's interesting how our perspectives change...as a young teenager, I reveled in the poetic soliloquies of the love-drunk protagonists, but as a young adult, I sided with the logical, realistic Friar. "

    " I loved reading this. I think it's the story that everybody knows the basics of. It was easy to undertstand with the translations on the other page. It really is a must read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 5/22/2011

    " A little too much rhyming and a lame but somewhat realistic story-line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 5/22/2011

    " Read in high school and my young mind could not understand Shakespearean writing unless it was explained to me. But I did appreciate its timelessness and tradgedy. "

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.
