    • Didn't always like the characters, but I haven't read much about this subject before and liked how Nora always stayed strong, even though things were falling apart.


    • Though Nora's behavior at the conclusion of Ibsen's A Doll's House was somewhat difficult to understand when I read the play so many years ago, it is now so much more satisfying to me than the conclusion of this retelling. In both works, the effort of the old friend to allow the husband to see the damning information in the letter/email -- to put things right between the couple, seem to be of little consequence in the new telling and I found myself unhappy with how quickly she caved.


    • Gilman's update on Ibsen just isn't something I can connect with. I always have some trouble with poor little rich girl stories and this one doesn't add anything to help me get past that, Ibsen at least had time and place to explain Nora's behavior, set in modern times she is just annoying. I am also not sure how I feel about making the sort-of bad guy Indian, if that is a step forward or backward in mixing in other races into the modernization of an old story.


    • A wonderful update of Ibsen's "A Doll's House" which keeps with the original, but Americanizes and sets us in 2005 Chicago. If Ibsen's work didn't reach you, this look at American spending, marital roles, among other things will . I was more than than pleasantly surprised with this update


    • There are some elements from Ibsen and this makes me want to re-read the original. I initially did not agree with the ending but now that I think about it, it is well done.


    • I enjoyed it more than Ibsen's, which isn't really saying much. But I thought this Nora was a little more human which made the whole thing feel much more urgent.
