Although it cuts a little bit of Shakespeare's words out; it helped me a lot for my English assignment in school. Sure it's no "No Fear Shakespeare" edition but I wouldn't change the wording one bit. I would have enjoyed a cast list including pictures before the story began. It was kind of confusing for me. But overall I loved the book. I hope you do too.
