    1. I just happened to see this book in the library and allowed it to leap-frog the other books on my TBR list into first position. Now, I shall say this very quietly, for fear of upsetting people and for fear of incurring the wrath of any militant Shakespearean groups that might exist but 'I don’t actually like Shakespeare’s Work' – there, I’ve said it. I will readily agree that the main reason is that I never really understand what’s going on in his plays; the language is the main barrie [...]


    2. A great book for beginners and pros alike. Very witty and easy to read, you'll sit down for 5 minutes with a cup of tea and an hour later you'll suddenly have read 100 pages!! A great book to just dip in and out of too, you don't have to read it in order and you can cherry pick your favourite plays and other aspects to read about.Also it's largely unbiased (something you don't often get in a Shakespeare bio/commentary) meaning you just get the facts straight up without some scholar's opinion. If [...]


    3. This is all I can say: I LOVED THIS BOOK!! No, I can and will say more, chiefly, this book is a great introduction to Shakespeare, if you aren't terribly familiar with him, and a great discussion of Shakespeare for someone who considers himself pretty well versed. I very much appreciated this book, as it taught me quite a bit about the world around Shakespeare, how his contemporaries reacted to his work, and the importance of the plays I'm less familiar with. All in all, this was a superb book t [...]


    4. A natty little guide packed full of facts, but curiously selective. Why no Twelfth Night or Richard III? I'd understand the omission with the less popular plays, but surely these are stalwarts?


    5. A very good book. Recommended for any Shakespeare fan, beginner or expert. I loved the friendly turn of phrase, and whenever I started to get bored I'd turn a page and a random list or paragraph on something or other captured my interest again. Loved it!


    6. This is a guide to the Bard written by enthusiasts rather than scholars. Handy if you're a bit unsure when it comes to Shakespeare's works, easy to digest and worth reading if you're more au fait with his oeuvre.


    7. An excellent book for understanding the plots, themes and characters behind many of Shakespeare's works. An enjoyable and informative read.
