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.

Improved with age
By Ninja engineer
I like the story more now that I am older and married then when I was in high school. A delightful short read
By This book is awful
This book is a boring long story that has no real resolution.
Sounds sexist- plus just watch"10 things I hate about you" for the 90 minute version
The taming of the shrew
We are currently preforming this play in my English class. I have really enjoyed this play. Bianca and lutencio are probably my two favorite characters. I highly recommend for anyone who likes romance drama and comedy to read this play or preform it with a group of friends or classmates. Its a ton of fun!!
