Synopsis

Dating Hamlet by Lisa Fiedler

It isn't easy dating a prince, especially when that prince is Hamlet. In fact it drives Ophelia to madness...Or does it? Since the death of his father, Hamlet has descended into deep depression. To make matters worse, the Danish court is filled with lies and deceit. Was Hamlet's father murdered by King Claudius? Is Polonius truly the father of Laertes? Who can be trusted as a friend, and who is to be feared as an enemy? Ophelia, with the help of her friends, has to find a way to save her prince and herself. (And all Hamletophiles who read it may well be surprised at the outcome!)

Reviews

Those familiar with the original Hamlet will most appreciate Fiedler's imaginative approach, as she pays homage to the Bard with clever cribbing and her own twist on Shakespearean language. Publisher's Weekly Dating Hamlet is an intelligent, inventive roller-coaster ride...Fans of the Bard will applaud this highly imaginative, lyrical text that plays with the story without damaging it. School Library Journal Lisa Fiedler has written an awesome book for teens and has given Ophelia, a character before thought of as weak, a spunky attitude that many girls can identify with. The ending is the best and will not let down all you romantics out there!!! Read it, I guarantee you will enjoy it! Reader review, Amazon.com

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
