I love Shakespeare, but this is not my favorite work by him, and I don't see why it's the one required in high school so much.
I find Macbeth, Hamlet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Tempest, and The Taming of the Shrew to be much more interesting, and deal with more appropriate ideas.
I mean appropriate, like more useful.
The themes in Romeo and Juliet just sort of piss me off.
Anyway, it's still fun to read, and it's SHAKESPEARE. :)
