  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kezia | 2/8/2014

    " Romeo&Juliet was amazing!! I enjoyed every second of it, of course I never really liked Romeo because he was a spoiled over dramatic girl-hopper(from Rosaline to Juliet) but everything else was amazing!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deanne Domantay | 2/6/2014

    " It was okay, but I really thought Romeo and Juliet were both very impulsive and I don't think it's love they have but more of infatuation. No offense, but I guess since Shakespeare is a man from the olden times, I really can't relate that much with this book than with the others I read. Sorry. :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Logan Walker | 1/29/2014

    " A classic book by the great William Shakespeare. A love story between two people with a tradgic ending. Also has a movie that goes along with it that can be used in the classroom. "

    " Read several times, have seen it on stage, and when my daughter had to read it for English class, I fell in love with it all over again. Retains its power to move. Shakespeare, of course. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pranav | 1/16/2014

    " I think this love tragedy was a really good book. Shakespeare proved himself again. After I read the book, I spoke to him on the phone and congratulated him for this nice book. He was so happy that I had congratulated him. He said that he felt "honored" for me to have read his book. "

    " I know sections of this play by heart. It's *that* good. Yes, I've read it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 11/16/2013

    " A classic, but unless you are a regular reader of Shakespeare, it may take some heavy thinking to ensure that you not only follow the basic story but also enjoy the full force of Shakespeare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher | 11/14/2013

    " Four hundred years later, this remains the crown jewel of love stories in the Western tradition. Its tragic elements have been emulated perhaps more than any work of Shakespeare other than Hamlet. "

    " I remember reading this in 9th grade English class and even then thinking that both Romeo and Juliet were immature. Of course I still think that, but the story is still fun to read. I was expecting to like it less this time around and was pleasantly surprised. "

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.
