4.5 STARS



*I get this book from school for English*
*I read the first page*
*lost*
*Re-reads first page*
*still lost*
Me: Hey, do you guys get what's going on?
People in my class: nope-nada-not a clue-i'm so confused too!-wait...what?-I think we're supposed to ignore most of the words."
Me: Oh, then this is really boring...
-------Next day-------------
*discuss in class, first page reread and explained by teacher*
Class: OHHH
------3 weeks later-------
Me: I love plays made into books! It was so fun and the characters are so funny!
***************************************************
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, this is a really great book to get someone into not stereotyping plays as boring reads. But, this may not be the best book to read by yourself, especially if you're in 9th grade. I mean, an entire class of Honors students didn't get it until our teacher explained it.
So I guess the only reason I gave this book 4.5 stars is because of the confusing beginning. It was chaotic, but I guess the author might have wanted it that way. In that case, nicely done!
