C'mom, it's Shakespeare, ya'll! This is a story of betrayal and redemption. I love it!
It's weird, okay. Good weird.
It's quotable. (If you're my friends, anyways. And we're all pretty weird).
One of the easier Shakespearean language-y books to read. It flows nicely.
An Awesome Tragedy
Reader reviewed by Ruthie
>I really enjoyed this Tragedy, just as I enjoy most Shakespeare. While Shakespeare is not for everyone, I know Julius Caesar is a little easier to understand. I found the language comprendable, in part because I've learned about Caesar's assassination before. Because this play is based on a real historical event, it's easier to read if you've learned about the event. I really liked Julius Caesar and if you aren't looking forward to reading it for school/summer work purposes, I suggest reading up on Caesar's history first and then you'll find the book to be much easier.

Shakespeare proved once more that he truly was a genius by this book.
This is a political novel, it is also a play, but dominatingly a political piece. The best part of this novel was the way it was written, and some of the speeches within the novel are clearly astounding, for when they are read out loud, they took my breath away.
Another highlight was the themes that were proven in this novel, you could agelessly dissect it for as many symbols as you'd like, and the general feeling I got from the book was well off.
I'd recommend this as a reading for anyone over 14 simply because it's amazing to read something that was written so long ago, and just the context provides so many different lessons.
