The Tempest by William Shakespeare

The Tempest (Signet Classics) - Robert Langbaum, William Shakespeare

JUST NOT MY CUP OF TEA, IM AFRAID.

I've been looking forward to reading this play for a long time: one of the main characters is named Ariel and she's a fairy! Unfortunately, I just didn't take much away from it. I felt like the exciting plot had come before this play and that the plot during the play was not exciting or interesting. The characters felt very flat and uninteresting, that the comedy was not personally funny, that the lead was not someone I liked at all, and that the romance was really random. 

This was the first time in a long time that I've read a Shakespeare on my own however, so it was fun to listen to an audio version on speakthespeech and read along. I definitely want to do it more often.
