Loved it follows the movie and the stage shows. All young people should read, see what America is and lessons that need to be learned.

The book is a classic based on Romeo &Juliette. The book is written well and flows well. The whole book takes place within 24 hours. Crazy to think that what happens takes place in that time frame. This is a must read. In my book club we took the comparison between this and the Outsides. Very interesting to compare contrast on that side of the story.

Great story - a modern remake of "Giulietta and Romeo"; good music

This book is amazing I would recommend it to anyone looking for a story that reflects what life would be like in some one else's shoes.

One big difference between a novel that is made into a movie and a novelization of an existing movie is that you can take the thing to work enjoy during lunch. I mean, the actual story you saw onscreen. Also, it's still there in the bookcase years later. The problem is that novelizations normally go out of print almost as soon as the second-run theaters stop running the flick. Maybe there's a new edition if the networks run the film, usually not. If not for the title, it would be too easy to write this book off based on its shortness, but you have to remember that the story itself only covers a few days. Also, in this book, our cast gets last names that aren't in the stage production or the film: Riff Lorton, Tony Wyzek, Bernardo and Maria Nunez, Chino Martin. One adult gets a real name--youth center operator Murray Benowitz--we used to only know him as "Glad Hand". Drugstore owner Doc doesn't get one, though. The cops--Schrank and Krupke--don't get first names either. One other thing this book proves--Jerome Preisler and Jack Gregory didn't invent the reverse process of the bringing of a story from the screen to the page. Like the play and the movie, this one is simple, but it's great.

A very cool read. Interesting to see the story of West Side Story approached without all the music that made it so famous!
