This book was not easy to put down that's for sure. It's a mystery (though not really because we all know the story of Hamlet) and therefore has many twists and turns and it follows the story of Hamlet with a modern day take. It's different too, which keeps you wondering. I was engrossed in the story and the characters, and was hoping that it would have a happy ending, but it did not. In the end, I of course shed many tears and was left feeling depressed. Ophelia's life was torn to shreads, and you felt that. How someone would recover from everything she went through is I dare say impossible.
There are many good things that you can learn from this book too. Learning from her example of things not to do or to do. I love in the last chapter at the end of the book, where she lists the things that she learned. It's a great list and one that I'm sure I'll look back on from time to time. Good book, definitely recommendable and worth reading.
