My class at school just finished a quarter unit on this book/play. Like everyone in my class ended up loving it, although when I first saw it on the syllabus, I groaned and thought "Great, we have to read Romeo and Juliet." I liked it especially the quick, sarcastic and witty dialouge, and paraphrasing. You have to be good at that in order to read this, or NONE of it will make sense at ALL. We also watched the 1968 movie version (don't watch the new one-it's awful). My favorite character in the play was Mercutio!!! he was funny.

Difficult but good

I just finished reading and watching the play Romeo and Juliet for Freshman english. I must say that at first it's hard to understand but if you watch the movie after you read it it makes a lot more sense.

    Moving...but not powerful

    The Tragedy of romeo and Juliet is a deeply emotional story, but it is definatly not for people who dont enjoy love stories.

    Good Book For Beginners

    I was only 15 when I read this book but it really helped me to understand what some of the harder words meant. I plan on digging it out and reading it again. I recommend this book only if you have a good vocabulary and/or are a patient reader. I still had difficulty since not all of the words and meanings of phrases were explained.
