Wow, Richard Armitage brings William Shakespeare’s Hamlet into the modern age with a powerful performance. The authors cut no corners as they bring the story of the Danish prince to life. They turn the play into a novel, which may annoy Shakespeare fans, but the result amplifies, and perhaps simplifies, the original. Armitage is amazing. He's more than a simple reader, showing himself as a gifted actor. He gives distinct life to each of the many characters in the tragedy, making it easy to follow the story. You can actually close your eyes and listen to the work and imagine the scenes unfolding, thanks to Armitage's acting skills. At the risk of shocking English teachers everywhere, this may be a wonderful introduction to the classic. M.S.
