Recommended for: English majors, snobs, and Shakespeare fans

This book is a spoof of some of Shakespeare's plays. Armour summarizes them and makes fun of them at the same time.

I first read this when I was in college, and my best friend and I snickered over it when we discovered it in a local library. (She later stole it.)

At times it is humorous, yes, but it's no longer as laugh-out-loud funny as it was when I was showing it to my non-English major friends and watching the puzzled looks on their faces when they didn't get the jokes.
