Listener Opinions

    " Oh my god! I loved this book! It was so funny and realistic to some problems. I just loved it so much! I completely reccomend it to any age. It's completely appropriate and nothing with "bad messages" or anything.The only character in this book I hate is the bully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 2/6/2014

    " Cybils! I'm seeing a trend of boy-and-girl best friends and weird character names. I'm going to start making a list. Mauri. Saber. Hamlet. Desdemona. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 1/8/2014

    " The Total Tragedy of A Girl Named Hamlet was very repetitive. It seemed to me like the same thing over and over again. I didn't dislike this book, I thought it was okay. The characters seemed well developed- but the fact that the 7- year- old was taking college classes was a bit odd. Overall, The Total Tragedy of A Girl Named Hamlet was not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/4/2014

    " Lots of fun. A great story where the girl finds her true self despite her embarrassing family. "Bad Girls" get their just deserts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suhad Hozic | 12/30/2013

    " This book will count as a light quick summer read for teens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 12/24/2013

    " Hamlet is not enjoy her 8th grade year. Her genius, 7-year-old sister is attending school with her, and her Shakespearean scholar parents make it impossible for her to just blend in. Add a couple of mean girls who are buddying up to Hamlet's sister for some reason, some pig jokes about Hamlet's name, and a crush on a boy named Carter, and Hamlet has just about all she can handle! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cat Fithian | 12/14/2013

    " This was enjoyable. I like the voice of the protagonist, and the story was good, although the teen angst and insecurity was a little heavy-handed, IMHO. The characters were interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri | 12/4/2013

    " This middle grade book was cute and well-written. It definitely deserves the awards it has won. I will be passing this book on to my 10-year-old daughter. It has everything that a middle grade book should have and I am sure she will love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 10/29/2013

    " It's ok to be different-don't go all out just to be like everyone else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JennLynn | 9/5/2013

    " An unexpectedly insightful look at the ups and downs of the middle school life of a girl with the unusual encumbrances of passionate Shakespearean scholar parents and a seven year old genius sister. Through it all, Hamlet manages to stay true to her convictions and even to embrace a new talent. B+ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chapin | 7/27/2013

    " I really liked this book because it was very funny. hamlet always does something that will make you laugh. I would recommend this book to girls ages 10 and up because she is and 8th grade. i think this is a fantastic book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 7/24/2013

    " It was a really fun read! I could really relate to it(except for the Shakespearean parent stuff)and picture the whole book! I love how the author gives you a picture on how Hamlet is feeling throughout the book. I think even guys can learn to love this book. "

    " 2nd time I've read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miriam | 10/30/2008

    " it was one of the funniest books i've read when her sister thinks she's bffs with the popular girls but they're using her and nobody believes her except her friends "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashlyn | 6/3/2007

    " That now that her sister is just as smart at her its pretty cool that she has a sister who is attending a middle school that is in the 8th grade and she's only 7. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 4/8/2007

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 3/21/2006

    " I wanted to REALLY like this book, especially when Hamlet discovers what HER real talent is. But while I love the idea(s) behind it, it felt a little clunky in execution. That said, my 12-year-old really liked it and ordered me to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shena | 5/12/2005

    " If the world seems to not always go right, read this book. It will make you laugh and realize that life could be worse. "

    " Naturally, having assisted my friend Erin with the first few drafts of this book, I'm a little biased. :^) "
