Review of 'Hamlet' on Goodreads

1 star

Maybe has a gimmick worth reading, but only if written by an author with more respect for his readers' intelligence. This feels like it's talking down to you all the time it's dragging you through its characters' pain and violence and dumb quips and hollow insights.
