Beautiful writing. Nice descriptions, well-fleshed-out characters, and I absolutely loved the way each chapter of this book was written from the point of view of a different character. Fine book.

But really, you might as well just read the original: Shakespeare's Hamlet. This book is simply a retelling of the tragedy (half the characters even have the same names), and I say if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
