Lisa Fiedler gives a feminine twist to Shakespeare’s Hamlet with Dating Hamlet, which garnered rave reviews from KLIATT, Publishers Weekly, and School Library Journal. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius has murdered his father and overtaken the throne. Ophelia, Hamlet’s girlfriend, takes an active role in Hamlet’s quest for revenge. She’ll do anything—including feign madness—to help Hamlet get Claudius to admit his atrocities.

Listener Opinions

    " This book began my foray into reading stories of this type, novels based on Shakespeare plays. I picked it up at a library book sale and it was well worth the buck. I'd say it may be even worth the full price but I'm pretty sure you can get it cheaper somewhere else.Who's got a need for a new hobby? Maybe me but of well. Anyways, this book is Hamlet from Ophelia's point of view and let me tell you. If you like alternate endings, this may be the book for you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 2/5/2014

    " Awesome! Shakespeare's Hamlet told from Hamlet's girlfriend Ophelia! And better yet, NO ONE ends up in the woods although a girl does dress up a a guy! (Inside joke from Mrs. Laszewski's class.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 1/7/2014

    " It was so much fun to read this book, plenty of humor and love. i couldn't put it down until i finished it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Z | 1/4/2014

    " A fascinating alternate telling of the story on Hamlet. It ingeniously diverges in significant ways from Shakespeare's Hamlet without contradicting it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie Barthel | 1/2/2014

    " I always liked that girl; this feels more like the Ophelia I hoped was hiding inside. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 12/27/2013

    " I know its a corruption of Shakespeare's original but i found it much happier than his. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista the Krazy Kataloguer | 12/21/2013

    " Puts a whole new twist on the Shakespeare play. Depicts a very different Ophelia-- I like it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alana Wolfgang-duran | 12/7/2013

    " This was a fun book. I read it right after I finished reading Hamlet in English, so the puns seemed fresh, the dialogue was right on par, and the fresh perspective was really endearing. I would recommend it for a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizzy | 11/25/2013

    " Witty, fresh plot twists were funny and interesting. Fiedler even wove 'Romeo and Juliet' into the end, which was cool. Overall, it was a waste of time, though. Too much kissing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 9/7/2013

    " Finally the women get a voice! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachael | 9/6/2013

    " This book was not very good. Although the plot was very interesting, it got boring at times and very hard to understand. I'm glad Claudius died but very sad Hamlet died too. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott | 8/5/2013

    " How can you change the ending of Hamlet. I give this to my students as a total Joke. 100% a joke. Seriously, Fiedler must have been kidding. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn-leigh | 5/15/2013

    " This book is amazing and reminds me of Romeo and Juliet a little. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea | 10/22/2011

    " I'm pretty familer with Hamlet. I have not read it but I know the story well and have seen a movie version. This book was a light easy read, I didn't love it but it was fun. A little too many changes in the plot for my taste. In my opinion Lisa Fiedler's book Romeo's Ex is way better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 7/13/2011

    " Teens who like Shakespeare's play Hamlet, should read this. It's Ophelia's side of the story (she only faked her suicide so she's alive to tell the tale). And Ophelia does narrate all that happens in the Bard's famous play. This is great fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren Nguyen | 5/1/2011

    " It was cute, if you like happy-endings. "

    " I loved Romeo's Ex more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/28/2011

    " This is a retelling of Shakespear's Hamlet, by the same author of Romeo's Ex. I couldn't put this book down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ophelia | 1/5/2011

    " not really about starcrossed lovers and all that but still good. "
