Review by

I think this book is great to approach before reading the original. I had read Romeo and Juliet before I read this book and had some confusion in some parts. However, if I had read this book before reading the original, I would have had less trouble at reading Romeo and Julliet. Also, all the stories are quite short and fast-paced. I was able to finish one story before I got bored.I really enjoyed reading this - more than I thought I would.
