I have always struggled with Shakespeare's language, and always felt the pressure of having to agree with people that he's great. But when I read this edition, with the full film next to the text, plus the modern translation, plus the built-in dictionary, well *now* I get what all the fuss is about! A really elegant and well-designed eBook. Kudos, and let's see a few more plays!

Great idea and excellent execution of the same. Worth it!
Even young kids love this!
This book introduced Shakespear to my young daughter (5th Gr) and she absolutely loves it. She saw a dress rehearsal of the opera, A Midsummer Night's Dream, at Lincoln Center and this helped her understand the content. What brilliant idea it is that you have in your hands to see over and over especially if you don't understand the story with visual elements.
