About the Author
William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.

The Kindle version is pretty much flawless - it's copied from a good source and doesn't have any glaring transcription errors as some free e-books do.
If you want a good introduction to Shakespeare, or even just want to branch out from his dramatic plays - give it a try. It's a free book - what can go wrong?
Also, the cover art is really cool and honestly that was what made me buy it over another copy.
1) It comes in fairly original text and wordings and is not converted into standardize english.
2) It comes with explanation of the difficult words on the side.
3) There's also side-note with interesting facts which will keep you interested should you loose interest in the book.
4) It's one of the most famous piece of written text in history and you should read it as soon as you can.
5) It's not that big so you'll finish it sooner than later
