    Beware...EXTREMELY small type in this book...way smaller than other student edition trade books my high school son is reading for IB curriculum. So small its nearly unreadable. For most high school students, this is a somewhat complicated read -- the mouse type makes it even more difficult to read, needlessly so. I'll be trying to find another printing (that matches this edition) that has regular size print. For anyone with tracking issues during reading, this would be a nightmare.

    Buy the student edition! It is cheaper than the others and I bet it contains nearly all the same content. Easy to understand, thoughtful read, albeit a bit short. It contains some philosophical questions leaving the reader to answer. It moves at a good pace and is clear, there's not a whole lot of hidden messages. Although I purchased this for school, it is a play that I will probably re-read and "get something out of". The only thing is that the picture on the cover on my book is different from the one advertised, so -1 star for that. It's a good read for someone who is newly interested in plays and dramas.

    Have always wanted to read this ancient story and the translation is very good and understandable. It helped me to get my head around the whole Oedipus and Antigone stories.

    Very useful prefatory comments and probably the English translation truest to the French original. This version maintains the ambiguity that Anouilh seems to have intended. It thus goes far beyond any simple celebration of "resistance," and leaves us with more questions than answers. Excellent book.

    I am familiar with the and partual to this drama, yet found the translation difficult. It it may be true to the original, but is far from our venecular.

    Easy read, the translation is simple enough to get through this in an hour. Read it for a class but would recommend the story overall.

    Kindle Version is awful. It formats everything so weird...and reformats it when you are looking for a specific line. You never know where you're at in the book.

  • By Von'Victor Valentino Rosenchild on October 28, 2014

    This is a great read! It reveals the dynamics of human nature, coupled with the complexities of society. I highly recommend this book to all those interested in obtaining greater insight into those principles that govern our moral compass, and the motives that inspire us today, as they inspired others in the Ancient Greek culture. - VonVictor V.
