List - Based on Shakespeare by: crankylibrarian Sep 27, 2012

Romeo and Juliet Bit of a disappointment. First of all Romeo is the villain, (yikes!) and his suicide pact with J. has led them to become eternal adversaries in a quest to save or destroy other lovers throughout time.

I love this author and I loved that she was putting a new spin on Shakespeare. I always like when authors try to breath new life into classics. But the story got a little muddled and hard to follow at times.

this book was really good. it wasn't quite what I was expecting and the end was disappointing but overall i liked it.

I liked this book, it had a good storyline, but not a completely exciting plot. I just didn't like how they ended up.

This book was okay. It wasn't boring, but it wasn't super exciting either. The overall plot was well thought out, but it wasn't as good as it could have been.

A really great book, and I'm now looking forward to reading the classic Romeo and Juliet. Parts of this book became a little confusing, but I got it eventually. An authentic and creative story.

I didn't really like this book. The idea was interesting, but it got confusing after awhile and had so much potential that it didn't fulfill...

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

No. I don't care if I'm not the first." His head tilts and his lips move within a whisper of mine. "As long as I'm the last.

“I love you. I want to do everything with you. I want to marry you and have kids with you and get old with you. And then I want to die the day before you do, so I never have to live without you.”
