………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I read a Midsummer Night’s Dream. Its author is William Shakespeare and it’s about fantasy and romance. It is also about the difference between the real world and the imaginary world (faires). I read it because my teacher chose it.

In this book there are two different worlds. In the real world, Hermia loved Lysander, but she was in love with Demetrius. Egeus is Hermia’s father. He liked Demetrius to marry Hermia but if she didn’t get marry, he gave her a punishment ( she died or become a nun). Helena loved Demetrius, but Demetrius didn’t love her. Lysander and Helena had a plan to escape. Helena revealed the secret to Demetrius.When they are in the woods, the faires were sleeping and Puck puts flower juice on Titania’s eyes. And then everything changes.

I like the first part when the characters escaped to the wood and the faires appeared because this part is very imaginative. I don’t like the part when the characters have problems with love because it is very confusing.

My favourite part is when Puck put flower juice on the character’s eyes because it’s very curious.The least favourite part for me is when every person changed their love because it changed the whole story.

The characters are fantastic but some of them are not credible because they are unreal. The book makes us think and imagine the faires in their dream world, etc.

Shakespeare is the most importan writer in English so he did a great job.

The book is good because it’s romantic but fantastic too. For me, some parts are confusing.

I recommend this book to all people who dream of a different world and who love fantasy.
