To be clear, I re-read this book for the language. NOT the story. NOT THE STORY. Lawd.
Can we all agree that what happened to R and J is really Friar Laurence's fault?
C'mon Laurence. These are kids. You encouraged Juliet to take fake dying potion so that she (a 14 year old girl), could be with her infatuation of what... 3 days? Like, um ... you're supposed to be an older, wiser, akin to God adult and you didn't think that faking her death was like, a red flag? You shouldn't have to fake your death in order to be with someone. FFS.
OH, and then Laurence joins in the Capulets and Nurse when they are all crying about Juliet's "death"? FOR SHAME FRIAR LAURENCE.
Friar John is no better. Worse than snail mail.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
PS. The whole scene between Peter, "First Musician", and "Second Musician" can go.
PPS. I'm so mad.
