    " I still prefer As You Like It, or Midsummer Night's Dream, but this was, of course, William Shakespeare. So it was really good. It was fun to read it and remember the Amanda Bynes movie She's The Man. Good stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicci | 2/16/2014

    " My favorite shakespeare play. I loved every minute of it. I've read and seen it performed many times in many different genres and I can't get enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zack Dryer | 2/6/2014

    " I took my family to a Bollywood inspired version at Shakespeare in the Park in Austin and it was amazing: "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly A. | 2/4/2014

    " While reading this, it dawned on me that the movie She's the Man is a modern retelling of this story. MY MIND WAS BLOWN. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 1/26/2014

    " my favorite of his work. this plot has been used SOOOO many times in modern pop culture. it amazes me that such a 'threes company' scenario has been around so long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 1/23/2014

    " Named my daughter Olivia because she was born on Jan. 6th (Twelfth Night). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Robison | 1/23/2014

    " Still I enjoy this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ej Palor | 1/19/2014

    " This book was more interesting than I thought it would be. At first, I was really confused at the role of each of the characters involving the love triangle, but after taking time to understand the scheme of the comedy, I understood it. This comedy definitely has high comedy, which was hard for me to notice in the beginning. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Shakespeare and modern comedy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison Strumbeck | 1/16/2014

    " I think this is probably the funniest play that Shakespeare wrote. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 1/16/2014

    " Definitely not my favorite of Shakespeare's. The characters and the plot are very flimsy and while I understand the concept he was going for, it's not his best work at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meagan Morse | 1/9/2014

    " Favorite! Twelfth Night is probably Shakespeares best work he ever did. The love triangle is so exciting that you never know when something is going to change everything! I love this play! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vinny | 12/15/2013

    " Classic story of cross dressing/mistaken identites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred Daly | 12/12/2013

    " Exquisite. I know it so well I hadn't actually read it in a long time, and so had forgotten how terrific almost every moment is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick Hurley | 12/12/2013

    " Pretty funny stuff. I like that Shakespeare can poke fun at courtly love. The dialog's actually pretty hilarious and I was happy that I could follow it for the most part. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 12/6/2013

    " My favorite play of Shakespeare. Light-hearted, funny comedy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 12/1/2013

    " Loved the book even if it was for school... see the modern movie SHE'S THE MAN...same names same characters ;P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 11/27/2013

    " Said "twelfth night" to someone today and put myself in the mood for a reread! One of my favorite comedies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Nikoline | 9/8/2013

    " My English class watch Shakespeare In Love this week, which is by the way a great film, and the end is all about this play, Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, and since I have got hooked on Shakespeare lately, I thought it would be logical to read this play as well, which I really happen to like. "

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

    " relatable characters and themes that hold true today, 450+ years after its creation... I give you two thumbs up, Shakespeare! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 6/30/2013

    " 4th quarter 6th grade literature at CA. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor Pormento | 6/6/2013

    " I thought this comedy was excellent. It definitely broadened my horizons concerning the higher levels on the comedic ladder. The text was truly a fun read and i reccomend others to read this also. And to watch the film She's the Man with Amanda Bynes. (: "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooklyn | 3/28/2013

    " This is my favorite Shakespeare piece EVER. Not that I've read a lot, but this one tops any of the ones I've ever read. The love triangle is so genius in the fact it's actually a love triangle. Wonderfully funny! I have read it at least five times and will read it more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia | 9/6/2012

    " Shakespeare is quite bewildering to the casual reader. I envy his vocabulary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 2/5/2012

    " OK, but not my favorite. Gilbert and Sullian like although to be a purist, I guess Shakespeare did come first. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renae M. | 11/15/2011

    " This play has improved with a second read through, but it isn't one of my favorites by Shakespeare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin Whalen | 6/20/2011

    " Laugh-out-loud hilarity ensues. If you're smart. "

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

    " Possibly my favorite, I liked this even more than Much Ado About Nothing. It helped that most of the readers on the audiobook were really good, particularly Viola. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 5/20/2011

    " I've seen this play produced so. many. times that it's lost a little of its magic for me, but there's still no arguing: it's one of the very best of Shakespeare's comedies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzette | 5/16/2011

    " Shipwreck. Twins. A woman dressed as a man. Love triangles. Chaos ensues. Love me a good Shakespearean comedy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Warren | 5/16/2011

    " my favorite Shakespeare comedy, as far as I've read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jillian | 5/15/2011

    " As far as Shakespeare goes, not my favorite, but still enjoyable non-the-less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sami | 5/12/2011

    " I like Sarah - and I understand where she is coming from. Her sister is an excellent foil. This is a giid series starter. "

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

    " lol this is a fun book even tho its a little weird at times its still one of my all time favorite books of Shakespeare "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 5/1/2011

    " Definitely one of my favorite books by Shakespeare. There is so much wit and comedy hidden in this book that you don't always catch the first time reading it. But it really is brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 4/28/2011

    " Chicks and dudes get mixed up. In Shakespeare's day, it was little dudes playing the chicks dressed like dudes. Sounds like an early version of Tropic Thunder's play on race. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 4/25/2011

    " I'm sorry, I cheated, I just read the sparknotes. but i'm just so behind. with five days of makeup work, AP tests, and leaving for another trip in 30 hours, i barely have any time to breathe. cheating a little on my fifty-two makes me feel a *little* better... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Careshow10 | 4/24/2011

    " Shakespeare. What to say but wonderful. If you enjoy Shakespeare, you obviously don't need my review to get you to pick up this play. It is wonderful in every aspect. The characters, the plot, the dynamics, the comedy. Just a great read. Shakespeare lover's will feel me. Just awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine | 4/23/2011

    " I preferred Love's Labour's Lost. This was ok -- interesting re the gender-bender part but that's the academic in me talking "

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.
