    I highly recommend it!

    I personally feel that of all of Shakespeare's works, the language in The Tempest is one of the easiest to understand. That being said, the notes and meanings given on the left-hand pages helped immensely while reading. I will ALWAYS buy Barnes and Noble Shakespeare.

    great book, take your time with it and understand it!!!!!

    You need to take your time because if you rush into it you will not get the full effect as you will if you would take your time and understand. I think that you should read this and act out some of your favorite scenes!!! Just have FUN!!

    THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF THE BOOK

    Because I never received it. I am writing this review because I have had the most abysmal customer service from B&N. I contacted B&N after my package failed to arrive, though marked as delivered. They promptly responded via email and asked me to reply to the email indicating whether I wanted to cancel or have them ship out a new item, free of charge. I replied immediately to please ship a new item. I did not receive a confirmation or response. Days go by and I reply to the same thread, asking if they had an update; still no response. I continually monitor my online account for any changes. Finally, after a week, I call and ask about my order. The customer service representative said there was no record of my contact. I forwarded the entire email exchange to complain about the lack of response and never heard back. I submitted a separate email complaint to let them know that as a B&N member for the past six years, it was really disappointing that they couldn't even bother to acknowledge my dismal experience. Obviously, I have never heard back; however, I still get "reminder" emails that I have items in my cart. Meanwhile, I had the exact same problem with Amazon and they replaced my order AND upgraded me to overnight shipping AND gave me a five dollar credit for the hassle. I will not be shopping at Barnes and Noble anymore, which is truly a shame. I am so disappointed.

    Footnotes don't work

    Was hoping to use this to teach my sophomores, but the footnotes are just a black screen. Disappointed I bought the more expensive copy of the play now.

    The Tempest was an OK play, but it wasn't one of my favorites. It might have been that it wasn't what I was expecting. It was also just a little bit hard to understand. If you are going to read this play you should buy the cliff notes or just take your time reading it .
