    " Although I learned to love to read Shakespeare. It will always be most amazing when enjoyed in the theater! "

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

    " What a riot! Bill Shakespeare had me rollicking with delight, and I can easily say that Twelfth Night is my favorite of his works. I finished reading it for a second time, and could not believe how easy it was to get through the tougher language terrain once I knew the jest of the story. "

    " Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy by William Shakespeare its about people who hides their true personality inside and outside. Viola is one of the main character that disguises herself to fit in with society. i feel that this book was not funny at all there were only in the beginning of the book. but overall this book was good everyone who was in love with someone end up getting married, some who was in love with other people did not end up getting married. the fool is this play is basically William Shakespeare himself just bringing his opinion out there using the fool saying people fall in love to quick in a relationship. also using the fool in the story Shakespeare is talking about how some women in society are dress like man. i would recommend this book who is a big fan of William Shakespeare work.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 1/19/2014

    " one of my favorite Shakespeare comedies "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Bernad | 1/14/2014

    " I was into the fact that we we're going to study comedy since we've done mostly the same genre the past few years. I was ignorant at first because it was difficult to understand the dialogue, but with the class discussions and movie I was able to comprehend and enjoy reading/studying Twelfth Night. The characters were interesting with their different situations and overall this was a good play to learn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackson | 1/7/2014

    " As far as Shakespeare goes, this was not one of my favorites. But still a good story and wonderful writing. How far we have fallen from his heights. "

    " Meh, not my favorite Shakespeare play. Alright, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauracatherine | 12/22/2013

    " One of Shakespeare's most entertaining plays, in my opinion. If you were trying to pick a comedy to read, this is the one to pick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emylie | 2/5/2013

    " Not a bad play, but I'll probably enjoy it more in performance. I like to read the histories/tragedies much more than the comedies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sesho Maru | 10/12/2012

    " Hadn't read this in a long time. It wasn't as good as I remembered. None of the characters or situations really stood out. Typical comedy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 9/9/2012

    " jokes: "i could marry this wench for this device...and ask no other dowry with her but such another jest." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Makala | 10/28/2011

    " Shakespeare is hilarious. I can't wait to watch this now that I've read it. I think I still like Much Ado About Nothing better, but this was amazing and awesome. "

  • 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. "

    " 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... "

    " 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.

About the Narrator

Orson Welles (1915–1985) was an iconic Academy Award–winning director, writer, actor, and producer for film, stage, radio, and television. He won the 1941 Academy Award for best original screenplay for Citizen Kane and in 1970 received the Academy Honorary Award. Known for his baritone voice, he was well regarded as a radio and film actor, a celebrated Shakespearean stage actor, and an accomplished magician. He first gained notoriety for his October 30, 1938, radio broadcast of H. G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds. Winner of multiple awards, he is now widely acknowledged as one of the most important dramatic artists of the twentieth century. In 2002, two British Film Institute polls of directors and critics voted Orson Welles the greatest film director of all time.
