I found this book amazingly stupid, but at the same time, beautiful.
First of all, Romeo falls in love with pretty much every girl, not just
He forgot about Rosaline just as soon as he saw Juliet. Who's to say he wouldn't
have forgotten Juliet as soon as the next girl came along?
Second of all, Juliet is thirteen, and Romeo isn't much older, and they get
And they don't tell their parents.
So Juliet's parents think she is not married and try to get her married to Paris.
But she's already fucking married. Real smart there, Juliet.
And then, when Romeo gets banished, he says, "The is no world without Verona
Which is basically saying, he is so stupid and narrow minded that he can't move out
even though it would save his life and Juliet's.
He's all, "I can't move out of Verona, because I can't leave Juliet."
UHM HELLO, IT'S CALLED TAKING HER WITH YOU, IDIOT!!!!
But despite the shear stupidity of the characters and their decisions,
it was beautiful and poetic, and I admit, I loved it.
Haha. Conflicting emotions.
