To be or not to be. That is still the question...

John Marsden, one of Australia's most-loved writers, takes Shakespeare's famous play and turns it into a moving and full-blooded novel. Hamlet, a Novel will be adored by readers young and old.

Hamlet's father has just died. By the time they've filled in the grave, his mother has remarried. Hamlet suspects foul play, and it's troubling his spirit.

Or maybe he was always troubled. Ophelia is in love with him. His best friend Horatio can't work him out. Then, on a cold, still night, Hamlet meets the ghost of his father. Download and start listening now!

    " I loved it . I found it atmospheric and very engaging felt like i was there , walking through the mist occupying the same space as Hamlet was "

    " Brilliant! The thing I enjoyed the most about this book was the youth of Hamlet. He and his friends are teenagers (teenagers being, of course, Marsden's speciality), and it feels like the weight of both the castle and the story itself crushes them slowly as the book progresses. "

    " I have a slight addiction to Hamlet, so I'm afraid that I am a bit picky when it comes to variations of the story. I am sure the author is probably quite talented, but IMHO, this story was awful. It's sort of a Cliff Notes version, but in novel form. So many of the themes are missing from the story, whilst other elements have been added that I certainly never took away from Hamlet before (I really don't want to guess at the size of Hamlet's penis nor do I want to hear about his bowel movements)... especially the bit where the gardeners all know about his habit of going down to kill livestock. WTF? That would give us a person that would not hesitate to kill his uncle, to my way of thinking. Signs of a serial killer, hello?! LOL What a terrible waste of money this book was. "
