User Review  - caseybp - LibraryThing

One of Shakespeare's "problem plays". It is contrived and a little confusing at times. I however loved the play. I think it is funny and clever despite it's problems. Read full review

User Review  - GlennBell - LibraryThing

Witty, clever but difficult to understand the meaning of some discussion due to the use of obsolete or obscure wording. Mildly recommended for the historical value of a classical author. Read full review
