The Taming of the Shrew William Shakespeare Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
In Shakespeare's controversial but funny play-within-a-play, the foul-tempered Katherina has managed to keep any suitors away with her aura of nastiness. Her beautiful and demure sister Bianca, on the other hand, has no shortage of interested men, but the girls' father Baptista will not let young Bianca marry until Katherina finds a husband. In order to make Bianca available, her suitors begin searching for a potential match, and find it in the equally strong-willed Petruchio. He goes up against Katherina in a battle of the sexes, which, depending on your critical point-of-view, is either uncomfortably misogynistic or deliberately over-the-top ridiculous.
