OK, I'll admit, I'm not a huge Hamlet fan, nor am I one of those people who is besotted by dogs (although I have one and love him). That said, I found this book fascinating. The writing is beautiful -- so much so that I could get to the end of a page and realize that all that had happened was a character had walked across a yard, and yet I didn't care, the descriptions were so well-crafted. I did find the book bogged a bit in the middle and it took some effort to get to the dramatic ending, but given its inspiration, that all made sense.
