Book Review
After much time putting off reading this one, I finally gave in and set my mind to working through it. While Shakespeare can be difficult to interrupt, I found this play to one of the easier ones. I referenced support material to deal with the translation that I would read beforehand, in order to understand the plot better. I ended up thoroughly enjoying this story. The ups and downs and drama they all engaged in, not to mention the many scenarios where conversations were overheard, which lead to many misconceptions that were nicely tied up by the play's end. It truly gave the main players that deserved it, a happy ending. After finishing the reading, I watched the 1993 adaption of the play, by Kenneth Branagh. This made me appreciate the play even more. Just read the play first, before you see the movie!
