Henrik Ibsen - A Doll's House

"The setting, time frame, and sitution is what drew me away from the book, considering that it is from such an old society."


"i maybe a little modern for the book"


"i would recommend this book for people with nothing interesting in their life. if i had to grade this on a scale of 1 to 10 i would give it a negative 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000. this book is absolutely not entertaining i cannot describe how painfull it was to suffer through this book. i think that this book would be better off used to start a fire than read. anybody from this century that is interested in theis book i ccan tell them that it is like shortining your life by 30 years. please do not incourage the continuation of this book it is for the better of mankind that we erase this book from history."


"I had to read this play for school and I have to say that I did not like it at all. I actually think it was pretty pointless and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The play moved along awkwardly, I think. The thing that got on my nerves the most about this book was how submissive Nora was to her husband. Is it really that hard to stand up for yourself sometimes?"


"The good thing was...it was VERY quick to read, other than that...who cares about the story. It was lame. I can't believe people paid money to sit through that on Broadway. There was no excitement what so ever. It was like watching what goes on in many households on stage. Evidently the big deal was that it happened in an earlier time period when it was less socially exceptable...big deal."


"This book was bad the characters and the plot were bad and borring and in the end /i had a complete loathing of all of the characters except the childen and thats only because they only have about 5 lines."


"while I applaud him for writing this book at all IT IS TERRIBLE!!!
'oh my little songbird'
'oh my scared little lark'
'oh my happy little squirrel'
'oh my fluttering wife'
'oh my scurrying little squirrel'
I UNDERSTAND THAT THAT'S THE WAY THINGS were BACK THEN but seriously?!?!?!
I think that it either needs another act to finish it all the way out or it needs to have the first two acts deleted or melded entirely into the third one... JS"


"the only reason I kept reading was for the romance."


"I can appreciate the importance of this work in changing theatre, but frankly it gets a bit boring. If Big Brother were turned into a play it would be this one. *Yawns, scratches himself and goes to sleep*"


"Eh. I know it's a classic, but it seems too dated to be read in 2007."


"What the hell?? I could of wrote this book. And I'm not a writer."


"When I finished reading A DOOL'S HOUSE, I concluded that the character of Nora is really immature and very weak ... On the subject of being treated like a doll,I think she was in a confortable situation and she wasn't really interested in changing it. Because if she wasn't happy with so many things that were happening in her marriage she should try talking to her husband and not wait until her husband said or did something about it. If it's hard to deal with something, I think you should say it and and not hide your opinions."


"I finally got around to reading this most celebrated of plays, Ibsen's 'A Doll's House,' and I was bored, bored, BORED ... Of the hundreds of plays I've read, this was one of the worst. I know it's considered a masterpiece by 'those in the know,' but I'm supposed to tell what I think and share MY opinions in this review, and that's what I've just done."


"Misleading Approach To Femminism
Absolutely no woman who is disrespectful to her husband and children deserve any kind of positive attention. Ibsen wrote about a less than perfect wife who deserved nothing else but a less than perfect life."


"The Best Review Is Mine!!!
i think this book sucked!!! all it is, is junk there is no point in this book and it doesnt make any sense!!! Word of advise: DONT READ IT!!!!!!!!"
