really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult, 2008-reads
Read in December, 2008

Truth: I usually would not have picked this book up. I only did so because it's John Marsden and I've adored him since sixth grade (I even met him in high school!), otherwise anything Shakespeare-related makes me cringe. Blame high school.

I delved into the first chapter as a cynic, ready to put it down and only turning the pages because it's on my Christmas Challenge list. Surprisingly I finished with a broader mindscape.

After being tortured with Shakespeare in grade ten, I have a new desire to give his works another chance. Maybe it's just the magic that is Marsden, but I really enjoyed Hamlet.
