Romeo and Juliet
Simon & Schuster, 1992 - 336 sidor
In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates a violent world, in which two young people fall in love. It is not simply that their families disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud.
In this death-filled setting, the movement from love at first sight to the lovers’ final union in death seems almost inevitable. And yet, this play set in an extraordinary world has become the quintessential story of young love. In part because of its exquisite language, it is easy to respond as if it were about all young lovers.

So many twists and turns. Although the love comes off very overdone and cliche, the plot is somewhat complex and exciting. That being said, it is hard to find suspense in a story that you already know the ending to upon start. Läs hela recensionen
