Author: Sophocles
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

Antigone is one of the greatest tragedy books of all time. If you love books about women who fight back and defy a ruler then this is the book for you. It is a great tragedy for a number of reasons. First, the main character in the story kills herself in the end. Secondly, she is betrayed by her uncle and sentenced to death. The most horrible part is she strangles herself with her own shirt! It is a great piece of literature and I recommend it to all ages grade seven and up. If you like tragedies and bad endings, this is the book for you. It is filled with sadness and you will feel pity for the main character. That is what makes this such a great book.
