5.0 out of 5 stars Romeo & Juliet, a beautiful love story Oct. 19 2001
Format:Paperback
Romeo and Juliet are the two most known lovers created by William Shakespeare. Their love story is one to be cried for, and it really shows the true meaning of what love is. Many people have claimed and agreed it is the most sad but romantic play ever written, and it really is.
They're a pair of star crossed lovers, who fall in love at first site. Their hopeless love is denied from the very beginning: their families have an awful hatred towards each other which has been everlasting. They go through many tests for them to prove they really love each other: Romeo's best friend dying; Romeo's exile after murdering Mercutio, Juliet's cousin; and finally Romeo learning his dear lover's "death".
Although it has a tragic ending, many people say this story is actually happy, for they both die at the same time, and their love is kept together, for eternity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Romeo & Juliet Oct. 17 2001
Format:Paperback
I think that the book of Romeo & Juliet is a good book. For me is interesting because it shows the strong love that Romeo and Juliet had between each other. It is a tragedy because they are separated by the feud of their families the Capulets and the Montagues. I think this isn't a 5 stars book because it is to poetic, what I mean is that they use poetic expressions too much during the book.
I liked very much the poetic expression, but in the book there are too many so in a certain moment you get tired of them. This makes to interrupted the book. The book is a tragedy but it is too tragic indeed, what I mean is that it doesn't have anything happy, everyone dies! It looks like a massacre. This makes Romeo & Juliet a 3 stars qualified book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Students May 21 2000
By LC
Format:Paperback
I am a student who had to read this book and I couldn't understand most of the stuff Shakespeare was writing. We first started to read some other books with the Old English type writing and I got a C- in this class because I couldnt understand it. We just started reading Romeo and Juliet and I had the same problem so I bought this book. Boy, did it help me! I got an A in my class! Another feature which I liked was how the layout is put side-by-side so if you have to read during class, you'll be able to know where everyone is and if you dont understand it, just go to the other side.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Reveiw of Romeo and Juliet Feb. 14 2002
Format:Paperback
I thought Shakespare made a great play beacause it was good in all ways and it left you wondering what was going to happen next!! It was sad at the end that Romeo killed himself for juliet and juliet killed herself for romeo but they were in love and the could't bare to stay away from each other ! They were teens in love ! I like the book alot ! Romeo did not care what people thought about him just that he was in love with juliet . This book kept me interested in every part of it ! Shakespare made a good play fro everyone to share and i am glad that i got to read Romeo and Juliet

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahh, Young Love June 25 1999
Format:Paperback
Picture this: the starlit balcony, Juliet gazing longingly up at the night sky, speaking those famous words as Romeo watches from below. You can practically hear the strings swelling as they embrace for that immortal kiss...But as romantic and unabashedly poetic as this story is, I'm afraid it doesn't hold a candle to its more "grown-up" brother and sister tragedies. It does make for a nice read though, especially for young people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare Made Easy is great! Feb. 23 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book would be great for anyone who wants to read Shakespeare in their own free time or for someone who needs to read it for class! The modern English translation makes it easy to keep up with the story if you're ever lost in the Old English text (although sometimes their interpretation is a bit off, it's pretty accurate). If you're having doubts on which book to buy, buy this one!
