My Rating: 3 Stars
I'm a fan of Shakespeare and I have been since I read Hamlet when I was 18 years old.
But this story, even though it's a very famous one, both for the book and the several movies made of it, it just doesn't work for me. Even so, I gave it 3 stars for the writing style (a masterpiece).
In the end, I thought that the story is not just about love and the consequences of falling hard in love, too quickly and too young. It's also about the restrictions that came with a title in the 16th century England. It was a period that the poor plebe had more freedom of choice than the nobility.
I also noticed a lesson that parents are still faced with nowadays: the more you tell a child or a teenager not to do something, that's exactly what she/he will do.
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
