Overview

The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare

Hilarious fun, this early comedy is filled with the merry violence of slapstick and farce. When two sets of twins, separated and apparently lost to each other, all end up in the rowdy, rollicking city of Ephesus, the stage is set for mix-ups, mayhem, and mistaken identity--plus the timeless puns, jokes, gags, and suspense that makes this play a wonderful theatrical frolic and a brilliant tour de force of language and laughter.

I do not like this version. There are a lot of typos, random symbols, and missing words throughout the book. I was not even able to tell when the play began becuase there was no clear diatinction between the parts of the book; there was no way to navigate through the book easily.
