Romeo & Juliet Final Essay
The story written by: William Shakespeare
This is why Romeo was a serial killer. Romeo and Juliet is a story of two lovers where they are both enemies, but they look past that and fall in love. While in the end, they both end up committing suicide. I think it is fair to say once your done reading the book you will think what I think. I think that this is not a story about love but instead a story about a serial killer.
The deaths of Romeo and Juliet are ultimately caused by Romeo and Juliet themselves. If Romeo would have known about the dual Mercutio wouldn't have died and then the plan of the friars could've gone accordingly.

This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer. He isn't just any ordinary serial killer though he is the best at his job killing 1 person every 0.8 days. Not only is he a serial killer but he made up a mastermind plan to “fall in love” with Juliet and then make a plan to kill some more people, and when he was getting close to being caught he killed himself never to be interrogated. In the end, Romeo got away with more kills in 4 days than any other serial killer in the
