I had to read Macbeth for my English class, and the teacher mentioned No Fear Shakespeare to help us. I picked it up and didn't have much trouble with the Shakespearian English once I really got into it. The translations are good for the occassions when you really don't think you know what was just said. Also, the cover art is cool.

Ok you say a few lines are off, or let's say, not easily translated, but the 'contemporary side' of the page does have the meat of the story. I was impressed that it tries to retain the poetry of his words and analogies. You could read this in a few hours. It gives another interpretation of Shakespeare, which isn't a bad thing. Not everyone wants to name their first born 'Arden.'

I bought the Macbeth version of the No Fear Shakespeare series and it totally helped. Especially with the longer sonnets! Def. recommended for college students who have to do too much reading as it is! You can read Shakespeare and if you get stuck, instead of sitting there analyzing it, you can just read the translation and continue on!!

The "No fear Shakespeare"s are not readable on anyandroid devices. There is no way to know when one buys the ebook that is available.

I purchased this book as a tool to help my son get through "Macbeth" in his High School English class. It provided a clear view of the story using a language that is much easier to understand than "Shakespeare." I truly recommend it to students who have trouble comprehending stories of this kind. It sure helped my son!
