    " I heard once that 'The Taming of the Shrew' is a book that you either love or hate. I'm somewhere in between (how's that for decisive). It's amazingly fun to see a nasty tempered woman learn obedience, though I do like to think at least a bit of her 'attitude' is still there, otherwise the play would be a tragedy, about a woman whose spirit was broken (like a horses?) However, that less than flattering depiction is not what I saw happening, it seemed more of a lesson for the 'feminists' of today. It's a very trick subject to address, but here it goes. I sometimes see women and men being downright nasty to each other, spiteful, and with no real reason. Kate is an excellent example of this, but my point is why, why the vicious spite. Submission is a lesson we hate to learn, probably why we rebel so strongly against God, but to invite this hatred as a counter measure against it invites poison to our souls, one that slowly destroys us. Anyway, interesting play. If you enjoy Shakespeare read it, even if you end up hating it the ideas involved just might get you thinking a little. "

    " Hilarious play! It's one of my favorites. But I'm biased to his comedies, because he's so damn hilarious. Petruchio is such an awesome and crazy character. I expected a bit more from Kate, though. Oh, well. "

    " Proof of the backward-ness of teens of the '90s...I saw (and fell in love with) Ten Things I Hate About You. After enough viewings, I felt guilted into reading the original. "
