  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Bartruff | 12/22/2013

    " Cannot read it enough...richer and deeper in meaning each time it is reread. One of the greatest plays ever written. And I rarely agree with Harold Bloom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ele Eusepi | 12/9/2013

    " It's fame speaks for itself. A must read for classics aficionados "

    " This book was butt anus and it appalls me. If I ever have to read such crappy literature again I will puke. Everyone just dies at the end like wtf? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 KC | 10/1/2013

    " Great story. I just find it difficult to rate the script of Shakespeare's plays. The plays aren't meant to be read alone; it's all about interpretation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Dymond | 9/19/2013

    " Not a huge fan of Shakespeare's tragedies. Being forced to read this in school probably took a lot of the joy out of it as well "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Jart | 7/4/2013

    " My first foray into Shakespeare. He isn't popular for no reason, this was amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen Dorsey | 1/26/2013

    " I'm not a huge Shakespeare person, but if I were to pick a favorite, this would undoubtedly be it. The trick is to NOT picture Hamlet as Mel Gibson, and instead watch the recent Masterpiece Theatre version. SERIOUSLY. Do it. David Tennant and Patrick Stewart - it can't get any better. "

    " This book gave me headaches. I'm not really a Shakespeare type, and I don't really read tragic stories. I practically skipped through the pages. I probably wouldn't read any of his books. "

    " I hate what the characters do in this play but I LOVE how they do it! A couple of the all time best monologues- I have references "To be or not to be" countless times and and what's his name's advice to his son is great advice. "

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.
