Plus there's the title of that play, which references the fact that 'nothing' was slang for a woman's maidenhead, which occurs also in Hamlet: Hamlet: That's a fair thought to lie between a maid's legs.

He was also not one to pass up a good. You need a Hamlet who knows the character, not a Hamlet who wants to do grace to the character or some shit.
I would like to compliment the authors for the beauty and power of their prose and Richard Armitage for his exquisite rendition. He could have clenched his fists, and grinded his teeth, and just got on with the situation. I don't care if it's given critical acclaim - fuck off, Kenneth Branagh - Hamlet is supposed to be compelling, and if you didn't find the character compelling, that actor didn't do their job. These would not alienate anyone using this book as an introduction to Shakespeare, and you could enjoy it enormously without knowing anything of the storyline. Why he was added is also explained in an afterword.
If you like historical mysteries or alternate histories, you'll love this. As classic as his plays are, they just are not my taste. I honestly expected a novel about Hamlet, but still with the familiar characters. Difficult to chose a single moment because there were so many, but I've bookmarked all of the scenes involving Yorick. I listened to the book during a 12 hour drive home from holiday and it had me gripped all the way. That being said, this was more than a retelling of the play.
I don't know how he managed to create so many distinct voices for the plethora of characters involved and keep them all sorted in his head. . I wish Polonius had lived a bit longer - I laughed out loud at this rendition. When he finally devises a plan to bring out the truth in King Claudius, things go exactly as Hamlet suspected. The person I feel most sorry for is Ophelia. Except for the part where you're bleeding all over my castle. او حقوق من نحب للاسف سيظل هاملت هو انا و انت متردد في قراءة هاملت.
يتصور طيف أبيه الذي يصرح له بأنه مات بالسم صريع مؤامرة من زوجته و أخيه و يطالب ابنه بالثأر فتتصاعد الأحداث الدرامية ذات النكهة الفلسفية كعادة العبقري وليام شكسبير حتى النهاية في مشهد ميلودرامي مؤثر يموت فيه هاملت بعد أن انتقم لوالده و أراق بركة من الدم بها من الضحايا اللذين لا ذنب لهم أكثر مما بها من الخونة المستحقين للقتل. In the wake of his father's death, Prince Hamlet finds that his Uncle Claudius has swiftly taken the throne and married his mother, Queen Gertrude. But, without the reader and his wonderful interpretations where every single voice is a different one, this audiobook would be a lesser thing than it has turned out to be, 12 of 12 people found this review helpful Hamlet, prince of tragedies never pales! Those of you who have been following my diatribes on this blog, know that I've been thinking about doing this for a while. It's not the language- I actually only read Shakespeare to sharpen my skills. I just cannot personally like it.
We can sympathize for the positions of these and other characters. What made the experience of listening to Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel the most enjoyable?

Here's the thing about Hamlet: if you see it and you hate it, you saw a terrible Hamlet.
Thanks a million to everyone involved in the production of this treasure. And all the while the armed forces of Fortinbras, prince of Norway, start to assemble, threatening to bring down Elsinore forever. And Richard Armitage was an awesome pick for narration. Absolutely, but a simple version, because the original might be too difficult and slow to read.
