    Do not recommend for high school classes.

    I found it easier to understand my reading with the real book that had original and modern text. This nook book only contained the original text.

    A true classic

    This is truly one of the BEST books i have ever read. This was my first time reading a book by Shakespeare and i was certainty not disappointed. This is a very dramatic and eventful tragedy about the prince of Denmark. Although the language is sort of difficult to understand this version provides excellent notes that made me understand completely what it was about. I loved this book so much i read it in one day.

    My review

    I think it was a wonderful play (I haven't read the book, I saw the play) and I would like you to know that also McBeth was a great play.

    A TREMENDOUSLY POWERFUL PLAY.. ENDLESSLY PASSIONATE

    HAMLET is one of Shakespeare's most bitter and powerful plays of all time. It combines deceit, promiscuity, murder, revenge, and conquest into one mesmerizing, compelling, and marvelous story. Entertaining, brilliant, clever, and absolutley spectacular.

    AN amazing revelation

    I have to admit that this is the most amazing story i have ever read. There is nothing like it in the world! I read this when i was in 9th grade I am know in 10th and i still cannot believe that someone could create such an amazing story. it is cunning. everything that Hamlet utters is pure poetry and beatiful he makes everything sound so magnifcient. I would suggest that anyone who likes this book see Kenneth Branagh in Hamlet. (1996 version) It is the best version of Hamlet i have seen (i have seen alot) no one else can play hamlet like him!

    Hamlet-Really a Modern Man?

    To say that there is much ado about nothing would be to miss one of Shakespeare's finest hours. Hamlet is by far the best piece of work I have read by Shakespeare and that is because it contains all the elements of a spellbinding, mysterious, edge of your seat tale. If you were looking for a work that contained lust, sex, greed, politics, murder and espionage all in one convenient package, this is it. Hamlet comes across as a man who is insane, or is he really just stressed by the weight of his position. I say you open this book and answer that question yourself, a fascinating tale that transends the barriers of time and place and smacks of modern life.

    the book with everything

    if you find murder, love, betrayl, friendships, sex, greed, hate, revenge, war, honesty, ghosts, hope, spirit, teen angst, family, history, speech, truth, spies, morals, or sports remotely intersting, you will love 'hamlet'. it is poetry, it is shakespeare, it is the best piece of literature ever written.

    Hamet-Prince Of Denmark

    I am studing Shakespeare at my school. And were focusing on Hamlet at the momment. And I find the play very interesting. Personally my favorite charactor is Ophilia, because beleive it or not, she accually has a lot going on, not to mention all at once, and they are all major in her life. First everything is peachy,fine and dandy. Then Hamlet (accidently) kills Poloinus thinking its Cladious. Then later her boyfriend(Hamlet)'Goes Crazy'. And much much more. Then she decide to end her life. And she does.

    WORTHLESS, PRETENTIOUS TRASH

    All and all this play is atrocious. Though millions have acclaimed it as the greatest piece of theatre ever, it is hardly that. People who say such things, such as Yale University professor Harold Bloom, are clearly self-serving conformists without credibility. In truth, HAMLET is a fraud. It is a classic rendition of 'The Emperor's New Clothes.' The intelligent reader recognizes this and so subsequently wastes no time in trying to decipher difficult language that is only meant to obscure a play void of meaning. The play's only purpose is to beguile the reader/playgoer with grandiose words into believing that it is something more than utter nonsense. For example, a close examination of Hamlet's true character reveals a man hiding behind 'limbs and outward flourishes'-his soliloquies. This examination eventually shows that Hamlet is nothing more than a simpleton who has donned a large vocabulary. In fact, he can easily be seen as the mirror image of Lennie in OF MICE AND MEN, Barnaby Rudge in Dickens' novel of the same name, Benjy from THE SOUND IN THE FURY, or Dogberry from Shakespeare's own MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The other characters in HAMLET (Claudius, Gertrude, The Ghost, Ophelia, Polonius, Horatio, Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, Fortinbras, Barnardo, Reynaldo, Osric, The First Gravedigger, and The Player King) are ridiculous and annoying caricatures, providing, as Dr. Johnson stated, 'no just picture of life.' Their total exclusion from the play would indeed vastly improve it, for they make no substantial contributions. In fact, their only contributions lie in the fustian and obfuscating nature of the work. Take my advice: Read Marlowe's DR. FAUSTUS, containing the brilliant Mephistopheles, the forerunner of Iago, or read Kyd's THE SPANISH TRAGEDY, home to the sublime Don Andrea, predecessor of Austen's Anne Elliot, if you are searching for great tragedy. Don't be drawn in with the countless others to an exaltation of the 'aesthetic failure,' as T.S. Eliot called it, otherwise known as HAMLET.

    Shakespeare's Best

    Hamlet is one of best tradegies that has been writen by Shakespeare. I never cared for his writing till I read Hamlet, then I was sold. Hamlets' words were just on fire all the time. There is nothing that he can not make sence of. And what a way to understand the human race! 'What a piece of work is man...' Hamlet proves Shakespears ability to look into the human mind, and find the dignity that unites us all.
