    ohh yes

    West Side Story is my favorite movie and musical. And to those who say its a ripoff of Romeo and Juliet-that's the point. It's an updated version so that really is not a reason to not like it. Besides, Shakespeare is not known for his 'original' stories-back then it wasn't plagiarism. Romeo and Juliet is adapted from Pyramus and Thisbe.

    All About School

    I wanted to try out for my 2006 high school musical so bad this year, and i was hoping that it was going to be something i knew. When they told everyone that the musical was going to be West Side Story i didnt know what to think. I had never even heard of a musical by that name. So i decided not to try out and to just go see the movie. I really didnt think i was going to like it, but when i sat in that seat and the lights became real low i was hooked to it. I could barly wait for intermission to end so i could find out what was going to happpen between Tony and Marie. The play was amasing an i hope that next year i will know what musical i am trying out for.

    EXCELLENT BOOK

    This book was one of the best books I've ever read. I read it during my 8th grade year and it took me only and hour to read. I fell in love and was torn between the love and violence aspect of it. It is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes Romeo and Juliet

    the best love story and setting

    i was in love with the movie. although i highly discourage watching the movie and then reading the book, it didnt make a difference here. the book was clear and concise and kept me interested much like the movie did. i love how its set in new york during the 1950s. anyone would love this story

    Awesome read

    Some books are boring to read, but this one was interesting... a few pages in, and you couldn't stop. There was action, romance, and more! Excellent comparison to Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare.

    Great book, fast reading

    I really liked this book because it went really fast and had a plot that i, as a 17 year old, could follow. I REALLY need a comparision book though so i could write my reasearch paper.
