    Reviewed by Joan Stradling for TeensReadToo.com

    Something's rotten in Denmark, but this time, it's not Shakespeare's normally confusing play. Marsden does a fantastic job of taking the Bard's poetic writing and updating it for modern readers.

    Hamlet still faces issues the original author set for him (an unfaithful mother, a murderous uncle, the hauntingly attractive Ophelia), but the reader is able to delve more deeply into the characters as they are brought to life by Marsden's beautiful prose.

    Since this is a modern version, it does have a few instances of cursing as well as some sexual innuendo, so I feel it would be better suited to older teens and adults.

    Thanks to a fantastic high school English teacher, I never had trouble understanding HAMLET, but I enjoyed reading Marsden's version and seeing a more modern twist on the story.

    Great Book

    This book is simply amazing and full of genius. I love Shakespeare's "Hamlet" and to see it in a new way fills me with excitement. The author has managed to take a great play and twist it and tweak it just enough to give it more life. He cleverly follows the plot and keeps an excellent portion of quotes from the play while adding a little something more to it. I was not dissapointed with this book at all and it makes understanding "Hamlet" easy.
