    "This classic Shakespeare is a great choice for a summer read. I was looking for a classic to enjoy. You can not go wrong with a love story from William Shakespeare."

    "If you are looking for a great romance book to read during the summer, then this book is it. IT is a William Shakespear classic that talks about love in a magical fantasy. It is worded in a sense that it is out of this world. Prepare to get lost in this book."

    "One of Shakespeare's great amusing books. It is perfect for highschool students as it is entertaining and also challenging. It is a good comedy that will lift your spirits with a happy ending. It was enjoyable and I good reading for students and adults."

    "The illustrations in this book are incredibly lovely. I know there are many "Shakespeare for kids" books out there ~ but rather than purchasing those generic box sets on groupon, etc-- I have taken the time to carefully select only the *best* retellings for our home library, book by book. The retelling that makes it to our home library must be a book that will captivate the imagination with depth of illustration as well as excellent word choice. This book is my "top pick" for the retelling of Twelfth Night!! It's really tooooo bad that it is out of print. I paid a pretty penny to snag a used copy for my home library ~ but entirely worth it to call it our own!"

    "This is a classic work of literature and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There's a bit of a language barrier due to the time at which this was written, but you eventually get used to it. I would strongly recommend reading this for those who enjoy classical fantasy plays. "

    "This is by far my favorite Shakepeare play. So well written (of course), so provacative, just a gorgeous story. I would recommend A Midsummer Night's Dream as the play to use to introduce youth to Shakespeare, they'll be hooked!"

    "Any of William Shakespeare's plays would be a great choice here so really it's up to you on which you prefer to read. This is a good start if you like the fantasy genre or mythology. It still has the great writing and romance you come to expect from Shakespeare so don't worry about whether or not you will enjoy the story, you will. "

    "While I was looking for the best-recommended books by Clifton Fadiman the recommendation of A Midsummer Night's Dream was given. This book has over 1000 reviews with 4.5 stars and good purchase options. The cover is pleasing but a little boring."

    "Not what I was looking for. I was expecting a book on weather phenomena, and a book from Shakespeare instead. Nice enough illustrations, but not what I was searching for!"

    "This version of A Midsummer Night's Dream contains references, appendixes, and annotations, making it a fan's favorite. The play itself is beautifully written and mythological themed, ending in a famous tragedy like only Shakespeare can deliver."

    "This is one of my absolute favorite Shakespearean plays! You can really feel the emotion through the author's beautiful prose. I have read this many times and every time I do, I find something new to love."

    "A Midsummer Night's Dream is a great book to read in the summer shade at the park or in the yard. It is a relaxing tale from one of the best authors the world has ever known, Shakespeare. There is a lot twists and friends backstabbing that keep you guessing and the way the words are organized is a pleasure to read. "
  • Cynthia Herrera

    "I love this book as a way to teach Greek mythology. It introduces well known characters from the myths, but tells a different story than the traditional stories. It is written as the script of a play, which for some can take time to get used to reading. "

    "One of my favorite things to do is go back and re-read the things I suffered through in high school and realize what I was missing. A Midsummer Night's Dream is actually quite funny to me now though I don't remember it as a comedy. The edition I read offers helpful interpretations on each facing page which helps you realize the meanings and discern the wit. Really glad I decided to revisit Midsummer's."

    "As a teacher, I found A Midsummer Night's Dream one of the best books to teach to my high school students. The kids are more focused on this because the story keeps them entertained the whole way through. "

    "One of Shakespeare's classics. I read it years ago & recently bought it to study for theatre. I found it an amusing, light-hearted book with endearing characters, written by one of the greatest poets & masters of language."

    "A classic romantic fantasy play by William Shakespeare. While you may have heard of it before, you might not know about the story like one would Halmet or Romeo and Juliet. A romantic fantasy featuring mythological creatures."

    "Another favorite of mine. I love fantasy and anything sci-fi. But who doesn't love Shakespeare? I read this in high school and I still read it now as an adult. It never gets old or stale. You will love this of you love Shakespeare and romance novels. "
