Hamlet by William Shakespeare – Review

I really shouldn’t be reviewing the work of Shakespeare, I’m for sure not an expert but here it goes!

Hamlet is a story of how the ghost of an assassinated king comes to haunt the living with devastating repercussions and it starts with the encounter of young Hamlet with his father’s ghost.

Revolving around revenge, betrayal, and madness, Hamlet is dramatic, entertaining and unlike what I was expecting an easy read but with a lot to take in. In this play Hamlet’s feigned madness is contrasted with Ophelia’s genuine madness.

This play was a joy to read, in the sense of inner satisfaction at the writing, the complexity of characters and the richness of the thought induced in the reader  by Shakespeare in this breathtaking drama.

I really liked this play, the only thing about it was the fact that it was a play (something I’m not used to reading).

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Bye, keep on reading.
