So theres this book, The Taming of the Shrew, and it's by far the weirdest and one of the most confusing books I've ever read.
So theres Kat, and shes crazy so no man wants to marry her. (We actually never find out why shes crazy) Kat has a younger sister, Bianca, whos kinda irrelevant in this story but for some reason shes a main character. Anyways, this guy wants bianca, but she can't get married until Kat does so first. (Dont ask my why, idunno) So the dude (i forgot his name) that wants Bianca gets some rich a hole to marry Kat, and tells him that he can take all her money once they are married. So Petruchio marries Kat, treats her like dirt, gets the money, blah blah. But all the while the guy that wants Bianca is pretending to be a tutor in order to spend more time with her. Which didnt make any sense to me at all because for all that he coulda just asked her father if he could take her out on a date or something. I guess times were REALLY different back then.

So as the book goes on, a bunch of stuff happens that I should probably go back and review because I'm going to have to write an essay about it :( . And at the end theres this scene where the guys are betting to see which one of their women serves them best. Everyone thought Kat was gonna have a fit, which she did, but for a completely different reason. She was md at the other two women for not wanting to serve their men because that was the way things were supposed to work. (no sweetie, im sorry) I was so mad at Kat at that point because she was such a strong woman. shame shame..
