As You Like It (The New Folger Library Shakespeare) Publisher: Simon & Schuster - William Shakespeare

This was the first play we read in my Shakespeare class here at school. I'd seen the first half of it acted out here on campus (I got sick halfway through, though, so I never did get to see how it ended). I have to say, I did think it was rather clever, and I enjoyed reading it. I really look forward to seeing another film version of it, though, since I think some of the lines would make more sense to me when seen spoken instead of just the way I read it all.


Anyway, it was decent! Not a favorite, but definitely not unenjoyable. Three stars.
