    "There are no spaces in the text, and the modern English is not in a column next to the old English. The printed version has the modern English on the page next to the old English. I don't see anyplace where I can "return" the e-book."

    "If you have to read Shakespeare, Macbeth is a great book to read! High schoolers can be drawn into the characters and action."

    "Macbeth is the quintessence of Shakespearean drama: it perfectly combines the tragic and the comic (as Samuel Johnson would write). The play uses themes all too familiar to modern audiences: lust for power, deception, and murder."

    "Macbeth is one of the most known and respected pieces of literature known to man. This story is written by arguably the great writer in human history, William Shakespeare. It tells the tale of greed by Macbeth and how it eventually led to his own downfall. This is an exceptional book to read."

    "The general introduction to this Oxford edition begins appropriately with a discussion of the possible anti-Semitism of "The Merchant of Venice". The editor Jay Halio claims that the treatment of Shylock is highly ambivalent, so that the character "transcends the type, shatters the conventional image with his appeal to our common humanity, and leaves us unsettled in our prejudices, disturbed in our emotions, and by no means sure of our convictions" (p. 13). After a detailed survey of stage productions through the ages, Halio concludes, "'Whether the play is itself anti-Semitic or not depends largely upon one's interpretation, on the stage as on the page" (p. 83). While this is obviously true, and while Halio properly draws attention to a range of ambiguities in the play's depiction of both Shylock and his Christian adversaries, the word "largely" raises a question to which many scholars have offered a challenging, hostile answer"

    "As a standard reading for college bound students, Macbeth is highly rated. It's a great book to read and study and talk to others about their ideas of meanings of the story. What greed what led them to their demise or was it something else? There are so many themes to story and is a great piece to read about."

    "Shakespeare, the name of the author is enough to get this classic literature. Macbeth, one of the classsic, one of the most well known literature book to man, oh the drama"

    "I was searching for best middle age books and was given the solution of Macbeth. The topic could go one of two ways and was not specific if it is pertaining to the middle ages of time or regarding middle age people. If the topic is for the middle ages, Macbeth is a great solution. It takes place in the middle ages and is a very well known and great story."

    "Hollywood's been recycling plotlines forever, but not as long as authors have been mining Macbeth. This is the original. It's got all the bloody drama and tragedy you'd expect from the Bard. When I consider my marriage, I always find myself coming back to Macbeth for insight and guidance."

    "This famous story by William Shakespeare has certainly been in circulation long enough for the generations to know it well. This particular version is an attempt to rewrite the story format in a modern way which is more easily read by readers who are not accustomed to the old English literary style. There seems to be mixed reviews on this one, so you will have to decide which version is the best for you. Sometimes, the original classics should just not be tampered with."

    "I had to purchase this book for my English classes. Before this, I used the Folger editions and to be honest Shakespeare isn't exactly casual reading. This edition does provide convenient translations which I rely on, a lot. This version was helpful in understanding the content as an overview. However, I still needed to buy another book for understanding terms and references from the original text. Shakespeare is always a challenge to read, but his insights into human nature and the beautiful language certainly make the effort worthwhile. "

    "Who doesn't like Shakespeare? Or, at least, has read it for school. I'll admit to being someone who read Shakespeare even when I didn't have to, and Macbeth was one of them. Like most of his plays, it takes some studying and rereading to capture all that goes on, but it is well worth it. "

    "This one really hits me. It began with some tedious opening but soon when into unexpected story lines. The wording is without a question beautiful. Of course, it is by William Shakespeare, right? You won't be disappointed. "

    "What can one say about William Shakespeare's "MacBeth"? It sets the template for every story of betrayal that we are currently familiar with today. It will take you a bit to understand and interpret the language, but the web of sin drawn up by all characters untangles itself in the most devious of fashions. A classic, highly recommended. "
