Personal Response: Oedipus

I found the book “Oedipus the king” really interesting, because it was a bit of a challenge for me to read because of the type of language that it is written, “old english”, so it was fun to read but at the same time difficult for me because of some words that I didn’t understood them as well.

One thing that I liked a lot about the book is the plot twist that it has, and since we didn’t read the first part of the book, that really puts you to think about what happened at the beginning in order for the rest of the story to happen. Another thing that I liked about this book was that Oedipus makes mistakes like we all do, and through out the reading he realized this, and he tried to avoid making another mistake by learning and trying to figure out what his big mistake was.

This story really puts you to think about several things while you are reading it, and the best part about it is that it answers all of your questions, but only if you keep reading it, because then it can get confusing, because it is so unpredictable and all the plot twists that it has, but that is something that makes it this book very entertaining to read.
