    " The ORIGINAL hard-boiled hero! I always put this in my list of favorite mysteries. It's got everything; murder, money, madness and a crazy dame! I read this every few years or months or when ever I spot a copy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexander | 5/23/2011

    " <sub> while i do find shakespear engaging, that is once the teacher translates of course (god bless sparknotes). However i find it rushed, and lengthy.
    I much preferred Othello. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin | 5/23/2011

    " You can't see/read this play enough. "

    " This edition is really great for teaching Hamlet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 5/21/2011

    " Perhaps my favorite Shakespeare play. The subject of many papers, Hamlet is one of the most complex characters in all of literature. He is tragic, funny, and lovable. The characters, plot, and writing are all magnificent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla | 5/19/2011

    " Well since it is Shakespeare I knew it was going to be pretty good, but I ended up enjoying it very much. There's nothing else really to say except that I wouldn't expect anything less from shakespeare. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/18/2011

    " not nearly as good as Macbeth. i was disappointed with it after all the hipe ive heard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 5/17/2011

    " Another of the few overhyped plays of Shakespeare. Didn't really live up to the hype, but overall, it was a satisfactory read.
    Good to finally understand the much referenced "To be" speech. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
