During English Class, my teaching made us read Taming of the Shrew. When I first read this play, I did not understand any of it because it was written in old English. I told my dad I needed to go to Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy of No Fear Shakespeare. Let me tell you, I finally understand the plot of the play. On the left, the original text is given, then on the right, a translated version is given. It made complete sense once I read it, and I instantly fell in love with Shakespeare's plays. If you need to read his work, get this book, and some other books about his plays. LONG LIVE SHAKESPEARE!!!!!!

I had to read 'The Taming of the Shrew' for my english class, and I thought I was never going to understand it. I found this on Sparknotes and bought the book and it was amazing how much easier it was to understand. By having the original text on one side, I was able to follow along in class as if I had the regular book. I loved this book and I will continue buying the other 'No Fear Shakespeare' books for future reading. I have already bought the one for Hamlet. These books made me appreciate, understand, and love Shakespeare!

This book was extremely helpful in English class, and since all the kids had it, we didn't have to waste time while the teacher explained what everything meant. We just read the original side, then the translated side. It was awesome!

This is by far my favorite play by Shakespeare. I've been reading Shakespeare plays a lot lately and I have found that they are some of the best stories to read. Reading this one, actually surprised me. I never thought I would actually end up laughing while reading Shakespeare, but I did. This has to be the funniest of his plays I have read so far. I highly recommend that everyone should read this one.

It was an amazing book. I didn't understand anything about Shakespeare, but I had to read it at school. Our teacher recommended this book. I agreed with her, IT HELPS ALOT!! If you don't understand Shakespeare's language, get this book or any in this series.
