    EXCELLENT!

    This book was so good! The modern text helped me to understand everything that was said and done in the play. I recommend this to everyone, especially someone who has to read it for school, like I did.

    I'm glad I can finally understand what was written but even thou

    I'm glad I can finally understand what was written but even though no one can argue about how amazing the story is I particularly didn't really find it was a love story. It was more like falling in love with the external beauty of someone.

    Amazing if you aren't so great at reading!

    This book was awesome! I read the modernized version (finished today), and now I am reading the original text. And I actually understand what is going on the in the play! My friend and I are reading it aloud, and if we don't know what a line means we just look at the next page and we can understand. It's a very good book overall!

    Shakespeare Made Easy

    I really liked this book. One side of the book has the original play and the other has a translation. This book made it very easy for me to understand the play and I think anyone who reads this book will enjoy it.

    SUPERB!!!!

    This made Shakespeare so easy and fun to read. It was like the book came alive. And, having the older text combined with the newer versio made it all the better!
