it was amazing

This play was very different from the other Shakespeare plays that I have read so far. I really enjoyed this one because it had to do with love and lust! The way everyone is disguised in this play makes the reader sit on the edge of there seat. It makes the person reading the book want to know what is to come next. I like books that keep me guessing about what is going to happen next and that is what this play did. It was exciting from beginning to end. What caught my eye the most in this play is that Malvolio was in the middle of everything that was going on around him even though he was unaware, He was in love with Olivia, but Olivia was in love with Cesario who was truly Viola. Viola didn't love Olivia back, she loved Orsino whom also loved Olivia. Malvolio tried to keep things around the house peaceful for Olivia but that caused others that lived in the home to dislike him. Antonio was a man in love with Viola/Cesario's twin brother, but he was not interested in the same sex dating. He was interested in Olivia. Sebastian (Viola's twin) married Olivia and that left Malvolio in the dust.! Feste the Fool knew about all the disguises that were going on around him even if they weren't so obvious, and it was his way of making money. Feste was really no Fool at all but did a great job at making others look like one. I thought that i didn't like William Shakespeare's plays but when I read this it made me like him. Overall Twelfth Night was a wonderful play to read and I wouldn't mind reading it again,
