This however is not the book to choose for that. I found that out the hard way even though I did still finish it in a day. Everyone knows the Romeo and Juliet story, I had no idea it was so hard to read though. I did get lucky with this edition though because in the beginning there is a 70 page retelling of this famous play by Jacqueline Ritten. And she told the story beautifully and it was very easy to follow. The trouble started when I got to the actual play itself. Our language has come so very far. It was hard to read and understand what was being said and it made me very happy that I had this edition with the retelling in it. I had no idea that Juliet's parents were so vile and uncaring of Juliet when she needed them to understand the most. That was a very sad part of the story and it made me dislike them very much. I could never imagine treating my children that way, but then again this is a whole new era and things are very different. I also had issues with how demanding Juliet was with Nurse. You could tell she was somewhat spoiled. I understand what was going on with her though and it sheds some light as to why she was so demanding. I have no idea who to even recommend this book to. Probably to those readers who love classics and those who love plays. It has to be a craft to be able to read and understand Shakespeare. It is a tough read but it was in play form so it did nto take too long to get through it.

    What's interesting about this is how much I enjoyed this play after I read "The Friendly Shakespeare", which I will soon be doing a review of. Basically it's a book that talks about the metaphorical and connotative language Shakespeare used in his plays. The first time I read this was when I was in sixth grade, and only took everything to a literal sense (if I had still taken everything to a literal sense, this book would have probably been rated 2 stars by me, but I'm so happy I re-read it to g What's interesting about this is how much I enjoyed this play after I read "The Friendly Shakespeare", which I will soon be doing a review of.

This book has long of moments of not just sexual tension and frustration, but of the incredibly purity and beauty in the conversations exchanged between what a fourteen and fifteen year old (in which their age also reflects on their hasty decisions).

    It will never cease to baffle me how Romeo and Juliet is considered the greatest love story ever told. Of course, what kind of English Lit graduate would I'd be if I didn't believe in everyone's right to interpret a story and see whatever they want to see in it? Like Oscar Wilde said, "The critic is he who can translate into another manner or a new material his impression of beautiful things."

Of course, what kind of English Lit graduate would I'd be if I didn't believe in everyone's right to interpret a story and see whatever they want to see in it? Like Oscar Wilde said, "The critic is he who can translate into another manner or a new material his impression of beautiful things." So, if people want to see this as a love story, then that's fine, but its reputation as the greatest love story is based almost entirely on hearsay and eye-roll inducing references to it, like those by a Swift song and Twilight, rather than actual and careful reading of the play. The love story is but the most basic of the play's elements, and for far too long this book has been twisted, it's message bastardized and whored to cater to the hopeless and tragic romantics. This book is not romantic and it's not about love. Quite the contrary, Romeo & Juliet is kind of a cautionary tale against the type of shallow, brief, lust-driven, and selfish young "love" that this novel is usually, - and ironically -, used to defend. Actually, both Romeo and Juliet are repeatedly told throughout the play that they are being kind of stupid and that they are confusing lust with love. Juliet was 13, for chrissakes, and Romeo had gone to the party at her house following another woman he claimed to love desperately, a woman he promptly forgets as soon as he sees Juliet and thinks her beautiful in his vaguely pedo way, and I don't think I need to point out that their very short lived romance had very dire consequences for several characters around them. If you want a great love story written by Shakespare, check out Much Ado About Nothing. Romeo and Juliet have nothing on Beatrice and Benedict, mostly because Beatrice and Benedict are not two foolish pre-teens confusing hormones with ever lasting love and wreaking havoc on the lives of their loved ones and their own for it. As far as Shakespeare's plays go, this is definitely not one of his best. Acceptable, of course, as are all pieces written by him, but hardly worthy of all the recognition it has as, most likely, Shakespeare's most well known work. I expected to hate it, and I was pleasantly surprised to see I'd enjoy it, even though I should've expected it considering how biased I am when it comes to Shakespeare. Romeo & Juliet is a nice enough play that's, sadly, been overdone and taken too far away from what it originally intended to be.

    Well, let me start by saying, I initially thought it would quite possibly be the worst play ever -- I hate typical, cliched romances! I mean, a 13-year old falls in love with somebody as soon as she's met them and then kills herself for him the next day? Because, that's right! Juliet is only 13! However, this play was so much better than I expected -- Shakespeare truly is the literary world's biggest genius.

I mean, a 13-year old falls in love with somebody as soon as she's met them and then kills herself for him the next day? Because, that's right! Juliet is only 13! However, this play was so much better than I expected -- Shakespeare truly is the literary world's biggest genius. Every line in Romeo and Juliet can be read into -- ever heard of 'reading between the lines'? Well, there's a lot of that in this play. To even consider that Shakespeare purposefully added in all these little tricks is mind-blowing! For example, when Romeo and Juliet first meet, their first sentences to each other are in the form of a shared sonnet. A sonnet is typically a love poem, and so to let this iconic couple share the 'language of love' with each other straight away, is surely a great idea -- is it not? To further stress my naivety towards the play, I did think it was going to be more about love than hate... Although this point is debatable, I definitely think that Romeo and Juliet is more about hatred. To have the most famous romance of all time based on a backdrop of hate definitely says something, and then to have the couple die at the end definitely says something as well... Maybe it's because I thought the message of this play would be 'love conquers all' I'm making this point... But now, I definitely believe that Romeo and Juliet portrays that hate actually conquers all. Although there is a catharsis, Romeo and Juliet's death was purely down to the hatred between their families that they tried to go against. I don't think I can fit everything I want to get across into this review -- I could barely get all my thoughts into my English essay! -- but I want to somehow make it clear that Romeo and Juliet justifies Shakespeare's genius. The semantic language of light and religion shared between the two -- although considered blasphemous -- shows you the real difference between Romeo's feelings for Juliet compared to his earlier ones for Rosaline, and the juxtaposed two halves of Act 3, Scene 5 strengthen the impression that the tragedy is gathering momentum. Another thing, is that Shakespeare has such an annoying amount of control! By using dramatic irony, Shakespeare makes you literally want to scream at all the characters involved. Shakespeare hints that all the events of this tragedy are down to fate -- and isn't that just a pain? Oh, how I hate fate! Also, for a modern audience, the social historical context is just as annoying -- we just have to accept the fact that Juliet couldn't run away away with Romeo. I know the catharsis (I love that word!) lessens the tragedy -- but why Shakespeare, why!?? Romeo and Juliet is the most frustrating play/book I have ever read, but at least, it's entertaining! Finally, do you want to know another weird thing about the play? The whole story line is given away right at the beginning! But if you think about it, the last few lines of the opening sonnet are rather thoughtful! Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, And the continuance of their parents' rage, Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

I thought that the style of writing was really great, but to me the plot was just... silly, I guess is one word to describe it. I don't believe in love at "first sight" so to read a book about a girl and boy falling in love by just seeing each other bugs me, and then to know that she is 13, and (guessing) him to be around 16 or 17, I just feel like that's even more absurd.

And I know as your reading this you're thinking it's just a story and anything can happen in stories; but I feel that what happened was just too extreme. I mean first she drinks a sleeping potion, and Romeo thinks she's dead, so he kills himself, after only knowing her for a short time, and by short... I mean 3 days, only 3!! And then Juliet sees him dead, she does the same. Then finally through their deaths, do the families decide they can get along. I mean really - it took their children committing suicide to see what they were doing was pointless. But I hope you can enjoy it, I would never not recommend this play to anyone, because it's beautifully written, but if you don't like pointless stories that have very little possibility of ever happening, then don't read it because I believe that you will be disappointed.

    We all realize that this was not meant to be a romance, right? We do realize that there is nothing romantic about suicide and family feuds that result in the deaths of several family members, right? We do realize that Romeo was just some whiny emo douche, right?

    I've got two versions of this book. The first one I bought at Shakespeare's Globe Theater in London. It the official version with this huge introduction to Shakespeare himself and so on and so on. This version has a retelling from Juliet her eyes written by Jacqueline Ritten. It is not bad and yet it is horrible. For someone who has not read this classic.. it tells you everything already. I don't understand why they put this in the beginning of the book.

I would rather have seen that you first read Shakespeare and after that the retelling. It is called re-telling for nothing right? Re meaning to repeat and yet you read it before the actual story. It was good written and Ritten has fixed herself on the way of Shakespeare his writing. Although that of course is in more modern English in this book than in the original but I can live with that. I normally don't like romantic stories but in my eyes you simply cannot hate this. It is the start of romantic stories. It's everything. It has so much more meaning than the love they write about. Also the retelling makes this more clear for people who are not known with Shakespeares way of writing or with the English languages. I've read Romeo and Juliet for the first time in 2010 for my oral book exam or something. I was the only one who read a classic and my teacher was impressed. I read it again just because I liked it and I collect things. I've got the modern story and the story Japan made from it. I've got the film from Franco Zeffirelli and that one is way better than Leonardo Dicaprio in his modern version (still good though) and I remember that a teacher told me about it. He and I could discuss much about books and I liked that man. Unfortunately for me he left school the year after I had him. I thought about him some more time after that. The only two things left on my list is to see the play in the Globe Theater and go to Verona. Well maybe that would happen some day.

    Romeo and Juliet, the place where some of Shakespeare's most beautiful poetry resides.

While the instant-love factor may not be everyone's cup of tea, it is not possible to deny its stunning exhibition and beautiful language. Were Romeo and Juliet immature? Maybe. Romeo was in love with the idea of love and Juliet was 13, although wise for her age. Had Juliet not married Romeo, her father would have wed her to Paris, a man not of her choice. Is it at least not better to choose your own husband - as in this case Juliet did - then have your own father pick a husband out for you? Were they impulsive? Yes - but had it not been for the feud, the story of Romeo and Juliet would not have had such a tragic ending. They might not have been in love. It might have been lust, mere attraction; but they died believing what they had was real and true. And if you believe something, then it might as well be real. Dying with that idea in their hearts made all the difference. Is love just a mere chemical? Is it an emotion, feeling; does it have anything to do with the soul? There is no definite answer. Your belief creates your own reality. Reality is subjective. Certain truths are subjective. Love is subjective.

Plus all of this nonsense happened in under three days. My English Writing Assignment: Romeo and Juliet is known as a tragedy of star crossed teens falling in love. With this, a number of people share the blame for their deaths. Montague and Capulet are enemies. When Romeo and Juliet first meet at a Capulet party, some might think of it as fate or insta-love, but its the start of their forbidden romance. Juliet is thirteen and Romeo about sixteen, seventeen, and they are both willing to sacrifice their whole lives for each other -which actually happened. However, the two lovers are not the only blame to it. When Juliet was with the Nurse and Lady Capulet, Lady Capulet urged the ideas about marriage. She told Juliet, "... think of marriage now", and told her about how Paris seeks her love. I think Juliet got caught up on the idea of marrying someone. Then later on when Romeo is banished and the arranged marriage with Paris, Friar Laurence gives her a sleeping potion that makes her look dead. Also when Friar Laurence said, "I'll send a friar with speed to Mantua, with my letters to thy lord", it wasn't fast enough since it was a mule. When Balthasar passed Friar John with his horse, Romeo doesn't know about Juliet's plan and then an Apothecary sells Romeo poison. With all these events, in the end, Romeo dies and Juliet doesn't hesitate killing herself with his sword thus ending the family feud with Montagues and Capulets.

    Before reading Romeo and Juliet I had, like many naive people, the idea in my head that this would be a beautiful, romantic love story that happens to end in horrific tragedy - a tragedy that artistically demonstrates the intensity of the love that binds them together.

    Read it like five times in ninth grade, probably my favorite of Shakespeare's works. Hate, love, and idiocy all combined into a thoroughly depressing tale. I did sincerely love the plot and there were a lot of quotes and lines that were just beautiful, but Romeo is so stupid! He said it himself! ("I am fortune's fool!") Very annoyed with him, but hey this is supposed to be romantic tragedy, and he's a boy, I guess I should cut him some slack. JK!

    I actually liked this book. The story was awesome but juliet's age of course kinda' makes you think what kind of a love story it is. And also i didn't like that they loved each other simply because they were beautiful and charming; not because they liked each other for who they were; in fact they didn't even know each other. But still i really liked it :P it's just an interesting story as long as you don't try to learn something from it.

    This is my first ever exposure to Shakespeare, and I have to say that it was really good. I definitely enjoyed it more than I thought it was. I read this play once, just for pleasure and to get a basic bearing of the story. Then the second time I read it, I read it along with the modern translation, side by side, and also with my English teacher's annotations in it. It gave me a much deeper understanding of the play, and allowed to me to fully appreciate it.

    Volviendo de Verona, entre capuletos y montescos, un clásico que me ha sorprendido por lo reeditado de los medios, aunque la esencia de la historia se parezca, el original es mucho más rápido. Un flechazo como los que nunca se han descrito en apenas dos párrafos, de una intensidad que las muerte sólo puede traspasar. Antes de leer el libro, borra todas las imágenes que tenías de la historia y labra nuevos recuerdos.

    The first half of this book is titled "Juliet's Story." It's a re-write of Romeo and Juliet from Juliet's perspective and it was a lot easier to read than the scripted Shakespearean original of "Romeo and Juliet." Even though I already knew the story because I read it in high school, it was fun to read this re-write.

    After I read this I remember being really mad and annoyed at Juliet. I don't actually remember why, and I might have been just following someone's opinion, but there was this bitter resentment towards the girl. It wasn't until three years later when I saw it performed that I fully understood and appreciated the story, it also didn't hurt that it was a musical.

The only thing was, we watched so many movie versions and did so many activities with this story that I am sick of it. Usually i like re-reading stories, but this one made me sick. Inititally, it was grea thtough, which is why i give it 5 stars, but I can't stand it anymore.

    Nothing feels better than a good old tragic love story and you really can't get any better than a little Shakespeare. Everyone's heard the story before, death out of hate out of love out of hate. Truly the richest, purest form of storytelling; it's no wonder why I keep going back to the basics reading this play over and over again.

    If you have read Twilight, you may have been interested in reading Romeo and Juliet(if you haven't read it yet)because of Bella's particular interest for it. I was curious! So, I'm waiting to get my copy!:)
