Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel - Richard Armitage, A.J. Hartley, David Hewson

"A journey through a familiar story which sees it from a different perspective." A.J. Hartley

 

I think what bothered me most about this outing was 1) its similarity in places to Christopher Moore's two recent books Fool and Serpent and 2) the anachronisms.

 

Interesting their take on the back story but just not as powerful as the play.

 

Do I recommend it to lovers of Shakespeare? Yes, but not because I agree with what they have suggested but because it makes you think more about the play itself.
