    " I often think of parts and characters in this play. The very best play ever. "

    " Hamlet is a very difficult story to understand. You may think that Shakespeare is talking about one thing, but it is actually something on a completely different level. I did although enjoy the story about love, and family. "

    " Forced high school reading....could never get Shakespeare. "

    " I like Shakespeare very much though its reading is quite hard, mostly for a non-native speaker like me who has to read it for her lit class. "

    " I love this play. There you can find vengeance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Áine Ryan | 12/23/2013

    " I enjoyed this, but it's definitely one I want to do some deeper research on, I just KNOW so many puns, jokes, and genius double-meanings in the writing went over my head on first reading. This simply will not do! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 12/13/2013

    " Reading Hamlet in my humanities class was quite the experience, because the year prior I had performed in it as Guildenstern. Therefore, I was very familiar with the surface plot of the play. I already had a basic understanding. I love Shakespeare, but I know he is not everybody's favorite. However, I must say Hamlet can be incredible even to those who are not Shakespeare fanatics because of all the layers. The relationships between the characters are so complex and ultimately up to the audience for interpretation (or I suppose the director when it is performed). Yayyyy Hamlet! "

    " Lovely language in this classic, but it's another that was practically run through by high school drama teachers. "

    " Read. Want to Read. Am Currently Reading... always... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 5/2/2013

    " 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. :-) "

    " A necessary book to read as prep for CLEP.... I do not recommend reading...very depressing in a funny kind of way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 5/23/2011

    " I re-read Romeo and Juliet before I taught it to 9th graders this quarter. It's interesting how our perspectives change...as a young teenager, I reveled in the poetic soliloquies of the love-drunk protagonists, but as a young adult, I sided with the logical, realistic Friar. "

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

    " I loved reading this. I think it's the story that everybody knows the basics of. It was easy to undertstand with the translations on the other page. It really is a must read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 5/22/2011

    " A little too much rhyming and a lame but somewhat realistic story-line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 5/22/2011

    " Read in high school and my young mind could not understand Shakespearean writing unless it was explained to me. But I did appreciate its timelessness and tradgedy. "

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.
