Although this is one of Shakespeare’s more popular plays, I was not very impressed. I didn’t find the characters to be very likeable, the story line felt slow moving to me, and the ending was not satisfying at all. I do, however, think that Shakespeare did a great job at developing Hamlet’s character. I think that there just needed to be more action within the plot, or another side plot, to keep the story more interesting. I disliked how the play concluded, and thought that it made the entire lead-up pointless. I wouldn’t recommend this play as a pass-time read; however, as it is a classic play, it might be worth forming your own opinion. @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
