I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, maybe because I read the modern translation of it. It really made the story easier to understand. I think the part I liked the most was Benedick and Beatrice's relationship. It brought some very much needed humor to the play. Read full review

This book is about a play by Shakespeare this is not recommended to be red by young readers. This book is about relationships and haw peoples opinions on others can change over time. I think that this book is about haw one man can change others opinions on each other.

In the inability to elude love, a story of courage fashioned from the earliest printed text in 1600, this adaptation is right on the mark. It is in the unfolding of the scrutinization of love hat keeps the reader intrigued to find out how it all ends. A comedy dramatique in which performance outdoes improper pronunciations as Shakespeares language is difficult for some to hear and repeat let alone read and comprehend.
