Battling Falling For Hamlet by Michelle Ray

Falling for Hamlet is a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet told from the POV of Ophelia. I heard about this book from thegeekyblonde. She posted two videos about it on YouTube. I highly suggest that you watch them, because while I may touch upon what she talks about in her videos, I probably won’t go as in depth, but you don’t need to watch them if you don’t want to.

HERE and HERE. (The first is 15 minutes long, the second is 5) I will warn you that these (obviously) contain spoilers, and Ann did not like the book at all, so if you’re going to watch them and you did like the book, please keep an open mind. 

Also, don’t know the general plot of Hamlet? Want to read this book? Want to read this review and don’t care about spoilers? HERE is Ann’s Condensed Shakespeare for it. It’s 20 minutes long, but it’s really good and will help you understand the play. Sorry for suggesting 40 minutes of stuff. Feel free to watch or not watch. Your choice. 

The review is under the cut. Please keep in mind that this is all opinion. I respect your thoughts on this book, so please respect mine. Also, warning that this is really long. I have a lot more to say than I originally thought I did.

theumbrellaseller:

Whoever hath her wish, thou hast thy Will,
And Will to boot, and Will in overplus;
More than enough am I that vex thee still,
To thy sweet will making addition thus.
Wilt thou, whose will is large and spacious,
Not once vouchsafe to hide my will in thine?
Shall will in others seem right gracious,
And in my will no fair acceptance shine?
The sea all water, yet receives rain still
And in abundance addeth to his store;
So thou, being rich in Will, add to thy Will
One will of mine, to make thy large Will more.
Let no unkind no fair beseechers kill;
Think all but one, and me in that one Will.

— Sonnet 135, William Shakespeare

Please note that as well as being the short form of his name, the word “will” (in typical Elizabethan style) was a slang term for both penis and vagina. If you listen carefully, you can hear Shakey sniggering to himself across the centuries.

Happy birthday, you smug douchebag.

and “will” was also slang for desire/lust, so like there’s 3209482 ways you could read this sonnet and all of them will be a dick joke

"I got tired of driving 45 minutes to get an apple that was impregnated with pesticides. LA leads the USA in vacant lots. That’s 20 Central Parks (New York). That’s enough space to plant 725,000,000 tomato plants. I grew up there , I raised my sons there. I refused to be part of this manufactured reality…I manufactured my own reality.

my future children will be so confused when they start going to school and discover that “shakespeare day” is not a real holiday, that no one else’s parents have a special themed feast on april 23, puck doesn’t actually leave presents under flowers in the backyard for good children, and believing in the earl of oxford isn’t worshipping a false idol
