Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully written The author portrayed women in Nora's era realistically. In a way, most people may find the behaviour of her husband appalling; however, it is true. It did happen and it may still happen. In modern society, we would like to think that we have evolved socially, but it still exists. I found this book excellent. Take a look at the movie Runaway Bride; Julia Robert's character changed her preference of eggs with each new fiancee, like the character Nora does with her interests. :) Go read it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DEGRADING I found this book degrading to all women. My female classmates along with myself could not stand the way Torvald acted towards his wife. All the little names he called Nora were not cute, they were degrading.I'll never read this play ever again. It made me furious to have to read a play like this. I was disappointed.
