Excellent Review of Romeo & Juliet

:
Romeo & Juliet is one of my favorite plays, however I find it hard to site down and just read the play. This version with the mixed moving text and characters, plus spoken words is fantastic as its a great learning tool to hear the play as you read it. I thought it was neat how the authors highlighted the old English words that are not common today and with a simple tap it gives you the word in todays meaning.
Well worth the money on this one !
