4.0 out of 5 stars Easy download and read 8 Mar. 2013

It's a great read and is easy to download but it would be brilliant if there were line numbers, although it is a free copy so you can't really complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ruin of the Moor 22 Feb. 2014
By EA Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"Othello" is sort of a companion piece to "Macbeth" -- both are about noble, upstanding men who are destroyed by their own weaknesses. But where Macbeth was ruined by ambition, Othello's destruction comes from his jealousy and gullibility. And the play is really ruled by the nastiest, cruelest, most devious villain Shakespeare ever wrote.

That villain is Iago, a high-ranking soldier who has a grudge against the noble Moorish soldier Othello, who has just eloped with the beautiful Desdemona. Using a nobleman as his pawn, Iago first turns Desdemona's father against Othello, but the new soldier defends himself agains claims of witchcraft.

But Iago's true plan is far more devious, as he disgraces Othello's lieutenant Cassion and plants Desdemona's handkerchief in Cassio's room. Othello finds himself confronted by a chess game of lies, deceit and suspected infidelity, and his jealousy reaches a fever pitch that can only end in death.

Yeah, the real star of this play is undoubtedly Iago. This is the most repellent mixture of absolute malicious evil and crazy-smart intellect that anyone could write -- he is the person you love to hate, even as you admire how devilishly perfect he is at playing the chessmaster who whispers poison into your ear while playing your "friend." He doesn't quite think of EVERYTHING, but he comes close enough that you would NEVER want to deal with someone like this.

But this tragedy is also underscored by the depiction of Othello, a truly noble and loyal soldier who is turned into a deranged homicidal mess. It's somehow even more disturbing to see him deteriorate than it was to see Macbeth, because this guy was on top of the world in every way -- he was smart, eloquent, a brilliant soldier and a newlywed.

5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece 1 Aug. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Othello is my absolute favourite of all Shakespeare's plays, it's just absolutely brilliant. It's a wonderful, but tragic play that has one of the best villians of all time. (Iago) The reason why this play remains so popular today is because the concepts of love, hate, jealousy, racism and violence are still very much relatable to today's society.

Haven't read this play, decided to download it as a freebie and it turned out to be a surprisingly good play. Well it was Shakespeare! This is good to keep and I'm going to build up a collection now!
