    Ebook review.

    The paper versions of these editions are great, but the ebooks are not. The notes are at the bottoms of the pages on the paper versions. That format doesn't transfer well on Nook book since the page is not flows onto a different screen. So the notes can be pages away and interrupt the flow of the play's text. So far I have not found an annotated version that works properly. Stick to paper for now.

    Ebook not useful.

    I purchased this but did not read it. When reading Shakespeare, I rely on the hyperlinked notes. The hyperlinks work, but the pages with the notes are solid black with no text. Ebook not usable. I will try to get my money back.

    more from this reviewer

    Play=great; supplemental materials=AWESOME

    Having performed "Taming of the Shrew" for a local college, I was already familiar with Shakespeare's ubiquitous Comedy of the Sexes. Reading this edition, not only was I pleasantly reminded of the genius of the Bard, but surprised by the depth and richness of the supplemental articles and information contained in this book. The footnotes and language clarifications are terrific, and the articles themselves (including the obligatory description of Elizabethan England and a cross reference of plays, films, and performance pieces inspired by "Shrew") are full and informative. Good read.

    Shakespeare's Shrew

    This story is not one of a woman tamed, but of a passionate relationship between two equally matched, brilliant, and attractive people, who have an immediate attraction for one another. When Katharina agrees with Petruchio that the sun is a candle rush, she is not so much acquiescing as she is learning to be playful. She is becoming civilized and using her ample wit and passion in a more focused way. Her family had always given in to her bad temper and tantrums, but had not shown her love. Petruchio really loved and wanted her, and not just for her money. Initially he said that he was out for a rich bride, but after seeing her, he wanted her! She loved and wanted him, as evidenced by the fact that she cried when he was late to their wedding, not of broken pride, but of a broken heart. When he asked her to kiss him in the street, she did so, as an act of rebellion WITH him! In the end, her speech was very tongue in cheek, and she and Petruchio were playing the others. Chastising those who had chastised her so often gave her great pleasure. She was the most intelligent and respectful wife after all - because she was respected! The other wives were not as good as Kate, and certainly not as interesting! Petruchio had gotten the best woman, an equal in his eyes, and they had the utmost love and respect for each other. Shakespeare loved his women, and made all of them strong!

    ebook version

    This is terrible. The play is wonderful, but the way nook formats sucks. I have repeated pages and it's very difficult to find which ones I missing. I bought a nook because it came from an actual bookstore Vs. Kindle which comes from amazon. I assumed that because nook came from a bookstore thet would care about their ebooks. Now I have to purchase a hard copy of the book for school because this version is crap.

    excellent

    The Taming of the Shrew is one of the best Shakespeare's comedies. It is absolutely hilarious and, for once, the plot is fairly straightforward. Everyone should read this.

    Taming of the Shrew

    I had to read this book/play for my language arts class. At first I wasn't excited to read it at all, but I ended up loving it! It takes a little bit of work to understand but it is hilarious as well as the movie with Elizabeth Taylor. I truly think this was one of Shakespeare's best plays. I absolutely loved it, Katherine was my favorite character! :)

    Somewhat Chauvanistic, but funny

    The Taming of the Shrew is a very.....unique works. It is funny, and creative, but it contains too much suggestive material and it is very sexist. In the end, it is pathetic what Kate does. I mean, that is completely wrong, but the other places in the book it was very enjoyable.

    A Sexist Play

    'The Taming of the Shrew' wans't ment to be a sexist play. If it was written today, it would be. But since it was written in rennesance times, it was supposed to be a comedy.

    The Turning Point

    I never thought of Shakespear as enjoyable Reading material until I read 'The Taming of the Shrew'. I loved the book so much I fell on love with his writing style

    Good book, or bad book that is the question...

    I didn't like the book in general. It starts out rocky and gets better towards the middle but the ending stinks! The conclusion of the book totally ruined the book for me.
