No help whatsoever Apr 26, 2006
This book did not help me at all. I am a young teen actress and I did not find any good monologues. A lot of them were for older actresses and actors and were really religous, talked about sex, or were just really disturbing or boring. Even though it says student, it is more for adults. I really want to return this book. It was a waste of my parents money. If I could, I would give it no stars. The beginning does give some helpful information about monolgues, but it gets really boring to read. DONT make the same mistake I made. The other reviews said it was really good, but trust me, it's not.

A gem Oct 5, 2002
I had less than a week and a half to find a monolog and was having no luck till i picked this up in the school library. Wow! what a great book! i found the trouble was to pick one! this is an incredible book and i recomend it to anyone. please note that thesemonologs are from plays, so if thats what the director wanted then this is a great book to pick from. I was hooked by the first 5!
