S. Jhoanna Robledo Dazzles With Love + Swordplay in “Romeo 2013”

In response to S. Jhoanna Robledo’s 489‑word review of Romeo and Juliet on Common Sense Media

By ,

S. Jhoanna Robledo will please readers with her gentle and fair prose in “Romeo and Juliet (2013).” One may wish to see the critic write her own stories of young love. It’s that good.

The appearance of Juliet (2013) is not dreamy, but it is respectable. It’s not quite Juliet, but it is her pretty friend. The usual Common Sense categories for parents are pleasant as always.

Juliet (2013) immediately addresses parents with some honest truths regarding love and swordplay. Robledo’s concern for the reader is evident from the start, and her audience will find a firm spot in their seat in anticipation for more insight.

The second section of Juliet (2013) is a dazzling tale of adjectives and names. The elegant words of the critic bring the story to life with clear, visionary phrases that place one in Verona. Many will blink just to make sure they are not dreaming. Robledo is gentle with the reader in this particular review, and the result is refreshing indeed. A tiny personal drop of knowledge ends the section on a high note.

Juliet (2013) closes out with a delightful commentary on the effectiveness of the modern star-crossed lovers. Robledo is brutally honest with the reader about both leads, and produces sentences that capture the intensity of the performances. Smart observations on the quality of the production highlight the final paragraph, and the audience will most certainly give Robledo the silent nod of approval. The discussion questions at the end are poignant.

Juliet (2013) is important for parents, but also showcases the storytelling talents of S. Jhoanna Robledo.
