    " This is a wonderful novelisation of Shakespeare's tragic play. A beautiful portrayal of the main characters, bringing all the key elements of the story together, and not once missing out on those intrinsic lines from the original. For anyone struggling to connect with Shakespeare this is a delightful and accessible introduction. And despite knowing precisely how the story goes I still found myself crying at the end. Brilliant. "

    " Shakespeare meets Robert Cormier. This made me pretty happy. "

    " One of my ongoing daydreams is of writing a series of books . Of course, as a lazy person, I often think of short cuts. One shortcut I thought of, but dismissed, was writing books that just told the story of Shakespeare's plays. The plots just aren't that complex. It is the language that makes Shakespeare's writing so amazing (duh!). However, this book does as good a job as can be done, I think, in retelling a Shakespeare play. Very well done, with poetic language that echoes Shakespeare, but doesn't duplicate. And somehow the plot did seem a bit complex. I liked it. "

    " Brilliantly written, bringing Shakespeare's Hamlet to life for the YA reader in an accessible format and at a griping pace. "
