    Why can't we study this in school?

    I am not one for plays, and I thought this was wonderful. Shakespeare gets old, especially in school, where all you read are his tragedies; they are so dull (we all know that at least two people die per tragedy (four in the case of Hamlet)). So...I read this for fun. The writing is wonderful and so is the plot. Cyrano just makes you want to be impulsive and a little violent after you see the wonderful time he has. I wish I knew a guy who was so quick-witted (yeah right) and so fearless in a still, sort-of-sane kind of way. He also reminds you that there are still truly faithful people in this world, a lesson which I think would do well to be preached in school (far better than the repetitive brow-beating with death and infidelity; Great Gatsby, anyone?)

    I saw a little bit of the Steve Martin version of the play (Roxane), and my father explained the story to me, and later that week at a bookstore, I saw it, and read it for twenty minutes, and was hooked!

    Cyrano

    Cyrano de Bergerac was not my favorite book but it was ok. The story was intresting and i had been somewhat looking forward to reading it. It ended up not as good as i thought'for me'. The problem for me was that first off it was in play format wich for me is more confusing and not as enjoyable as a novel. Also, the begining is realy confusing because there is alot going on, there are a ton of characters, and everything just kind of bounses around from person to person. That was just for the first act though. Once i got to the second act it was fiarly easier to follow. So, over all the book was ok but i don't reccomend reading it if your expecting somthing to blow you away.
