Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Useful! This is so helpful if you are studying Romeo and Juliet in Highschool English course. The tranlation to modern english helps so much and I really reccomend this for anyone studying sheakspere!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favorite I found as a work or writing this wasn't very good, the whole thing just seemed shallow and underdeveloped and caused many frustrations. Shakespeare's other works are much better and should be seen as performances

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth A Read Despite this being so famous, the aspect that Shakespeare didn't originally come up with the theme of star-crossed lovers dampened it for me but the read was overall decent. I think this would be much more preferable as a play as it was intended

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overrated I was a little disappointed with what I expected to be a brilliant play, but instead found that so many characters were lacking, and Romeo to be one of my least favorite character in any story I have ever read. Despite the unfair characters and poetic injustice, this classic is still worth a read, or at the very least a watch. I think this is a little overrated

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tragic This novel is definitely not the best, but I think we can all admit Shakespeare is an excellent writer for his time. Personally I think the whole concept of falling in love within a day as well as killing yourself because the person you met like a day ago is dead. Regardless of this, the message that no one else should let someone chose who they love and regardless of social status this shouldn't matter is definitely a good message

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! You need to read this book for its poetic language of love not actually its plot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring and cheesy as hell im so sorry I fell asleep during class reading this it was honestly torture. If you like to be attached to characters and relate to them, I wouldn't recommend this. I think its also because there are so many ways to interpret the meaning of the play and that is what bored me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for School I bought this for school in grade 9 and it was super helpful. The play itself is meh. I really like the No Fear Shakespeare books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Romeo and Juliet While I don’t find this romantic, and I’m not sure we’re meant to anyway, it’s a page-turner of a story. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre Although so well know, this is one of Shakespeare's less intriguing works. Especially in comparison to "Hamlet".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool This is a great adapted version of Romeo and Juliet that I use in my classroom for students who have difficulties understanding Shakespearean language. I love that there is modern English on one side of the page and the original text on the other side of the page.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I read it. I can't say much more about it then: I read it. It's okay. You should probably read it just to understand when other media makes reference to it but honestly, not the best play in the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite Shakespeare play Honestly as cheesy as it sounds, Romeo and Juliet is one of my favourite plays because of how romantic it is, granted even though the ending is kind of morbid. Shakespeare never fails to mix humor with serious topics and no matter how serious a situation might be it always includes a sense of lightness to it. I think I read this play in 1 sitting and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Story Many people hate this play because the main characters make a series of decisions that do not make a great level of sense and result in a negative outcome. However, the purpose of the play is to demonstrate that love is a raw emotion that is all consuming and destructive force, that if properly nurtured can lead to true happiness. Additionally, Shakespeare is able to mix tragedy and comedy beautifully.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Forget It I never liked this book and its story of star-crossed lovers. The characters just make one bad decision after another. The ending is stupid and terrible. Romeo and Juliet kill themselves. That really solves a lot. There are better Shakespeare plays to read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WHY Every character in this book makes dumb decisions and it drove me insane trying to get through it!
Date published: 2017-02-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good story with dumb characters Like my title reads, the story could've turned out very good if there was more character development... but the characters are so contrived and stubborn that they just stick to their own beliefs all throughout the book and thus creating issues that were note even suppose to happen in the first place

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overrated You'd probably only read this for high school English class. I get it, this was the foundation and influence of many other great works in literature but the story itself is quite simple and in my opinion, does not live up to its hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Althougb Romeo and Juliet were teenagers, the tragedy was really saddening to read. The book really helps you to gain a better understanding of the characters and the line by line translation gave me the play in English, which was really helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously Is this S's best play? I think so, at least for language and poetry. Lear is more tragic, Hamlet more sophisticated, Macbeth is more intense, but this is ... beyond words.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Graphic Adaptation, True to the Original Reason for Reading: Honestly, I hate Romeo & Juliet; I think it is the stupidest love story ever written, but I won't go into my views on that here. I read this adaptation solely because I was sent a review copy. I've read the play and seen it performed at Stratford Festival so am very familiar with the story and I found this to be a very well-written adaptation, true to the original. Written in modern English, which is how I prefer my Shakespeare. The story is very easy to read and unlike any other Campfire Classics I've read to date, this one had the occasional asterix to explain a perhaps uncommon word. The cover art is very pretty but not representational of the inside art which is illustrated as realistic 16th century Italian life. Well done and attractive. The book begins with a brief bio. of Shakespeare and a cast of main characters page and ends with a two-page spread of did-you-know type facts about Shakespeare, in general, and this play in particular. This is a perfect introduction to the play.
