En primer lugar quiero decir que tiene unos gráficos sencillamente magníficos, que mantienen enganchados a los lectores y los permite relacionarse aún más con la historia. Ahora, los clásicos no son para todo el mundo y siento que en otro momento de mi vida tal vez hubiera amado aún más esta gran obra de la literatura, sin embargo, siento que no me desagrado en lo absoluto. Hay que admitir que es demasiado atrapante y una vez que lo lees no puedes dejar de hacerlo, además, sus personajes (aunque En primer lugar quiero decir que tiene unos gráficos sencillamente magníficos, que mantienen enganchados a los lectores y los permite relacionarse aún más con la historia.

Hay que admitir que es demasiado atrapante y una vez que lo lees no puedes dejar de hacerlo, además, sus personajes (aunque algunas veces estresantes) no dejan de sorprenderte. ✨✨✨ Obviamente es una historia que todos conocemos de principio a fin, familias enemigas - chico conoce a chica - they falling in love - muerte, muerte, trágica muerte. Pero esto no quita el encanto con el que atrae a los lectores a leer este drama fatídico. Un buen libro? Definitivamente. Mi favorito? No lo creo. En síntesis no es un mal libro ni está sobre valorado, sencillamente los tiempos cambian y hay que evolucionar además de entender que para gustos hay muchos colores.

    Recommended for teachers who want to discuss this story in class but are dealing with pupils who are reluctant readers or have difficulties with reading. This format is likely to be more motivating because of the imagery and accessible language. BUT JESUS Romeo is a total creep (hiding in the bushes) and both him and Juliet are so naive. This instalove thing is just ridiculous. Who gets married after one day? Especially when Romeo was 'heartbroken' about Rosaline hours before he met Juliet.

This instalove thing is just ridiculous. Who gets married after one day? Especially when Romeo was 'heartbroken' about Rosaline hours before he met Juliet. Plus Juliet could be regarded quite promiscuous for kissing Romeo on the first evening (for a story being written in the 16th C). Quel scandale! ;) Furthermore... Romeo's friends are unbearably childish and that nurse needs to calm down.

    The Quick Text version isn’t very satisfying, and it also makes some of the panels look too big with open empty spaces over the characters’ heads. I picked it up at a library sale and didn’t realize the format. Oh well

    Minha primeira leitura em inglês💖 diálogos super tranquilos de traduzir. Citação de Romeo: "Love is a puzzle, I just can't understand it" A true love always finds a way.

    I really enjoyed this retelling of Romeo and Juliet in graphic novel form. I think they did a good job on this graphic novel. Reading it as an adult makes the story even harder to believe since they really only knew each other for such a short period of time.
