    " This was a really good read. The ghost of Hamlets father comes back to haunt him and tells him to take vengence for his death. It really keeps you guessing. Is Hamlet really crazy or is it just an act? Does he really love Ophelia? "

    " I think Hamlet's a whiny bastard. But one must appreciate the Bard, his command of language, and (of course) Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. "

    " I thought the book/play was really good. I watched the black and white movie with Jean Simmons for a class in 2012 as required reading. We looked at the story and its theme in the aspects of Dante's Inferno, and how Hamlet's world is established in hell (figuratively). To be specific, suicides, murderers, liars and hypocrites all went to different circles of hell. "

    " I love Hamlet. I read this book about four times in high school and every time I was caught laughing out loud at some of Hamlet's lines. I've always thought Shakespeare to be genius and I think this book is the epitome of that. A must read for every human being in my opinion. :-) "

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.
