    Summary: This book is a comedy. There are two people who love each other. Don Jon tries to stop everything from happening. Benedict and Beatrice keep the book moving slowly but surely. Hero and Claudio are the two that make the book interesting.

    Evaluation: I liked the book; it was hard to read inside of my head at times, so you have to go back and read sections over. But for being written hundreds of years before I was born it is funny.

    Summary: A comedy by William Shakespeare featuring two characters who oppose love and end up falling for each other. A couple side plots add texture to the story. Don Jon is the antagonist of the story, because he tries to stop the action. Benedict and Beatrice are the protagonists, because through their interactions they move the plot of the story forward. Hero and Claudio are minor characters, because although they add layers to the story, they are not the “main couple”. Some may argue that the Prince and Claudio are the protagonists because they are the good guys in the story, but because they don’t move the action they aren’t considered.

    Evaluation: I liked this book, though I think that it was kind of a no-brainer for Shakespeare to write (aside from the language and all the clever side jokes.) To make a comedy in the 1500’s, you wrote to please the audience. So basically, the book’s full of sexual innuendos. In Much Ado About Nothing, on half the pages there are definitions for the Elizabethan language words which was helpful. For those interested in Shakespeare, be sure to check out Much Ado About Nothing.

    Summary: Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare is a romantic comedy drama about a couple who first fight all the time but end up loving each other and want to get married. The problem is that someone doesn’t want them to get married and does everything that he can to make sure that the marriage doesn’t go through. He even starts terrible rumors about the bride to be until the wedding is halted in the middle of the ceremony.

    Evaluation: I would say this book deserved 5 stars, because it was funny. There were tons of funny puns and jokes throughout the whole book, and the drama was exciting; I never wanted to put it down. I would recomend this book to anyone. I think any type of person and any type of reader would enjoy this book because there’s a little bit of everything in it. =D
