    Richard Armitage needs to narrate all the audiobooks ever His voice is magnificently toe curling.

    Shakespeare purists may not appreciate this novelization of his Hamlet, but I liked it a lot I thought it was a good adaptation.Being a lover of audiobooks, I was excited when I heard about Richard Armitage as narrator I ve listened to some of his other book narrations and he is fantastic He creates distinct voices for each character and because he s an actor, he performs the book than mere reading He is flawless and I thoroughly enjoyed his interpretation of each person.I highly recommend Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.

    I enjoyed this It was fun I recommend it Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is a reworking of Shakespeare s Hamlet The story has become of an action filled thriller, while the ethical and psychological issues still remain As explained in the two afterwords, one by each of the two authors, Shakespeare s Hamlet has been reworked, just as what we today most commonly see on the stage is also a reworking of Shakespeare s original There exist in fact several original versions scenes and lines present in one are lacking in another Further 1800 and 1900 interpretations have changed the originals It is also pointed out that the history, as it is presented in the story, is not correct Neither was it correct in Shakespeare s original Norway never controlled Denmark the reverse is true It is also mentioned that the story is based on an earlier legend, the legend of Amleth, chronicled by Saxo Grammaticus in the 1200s The afterwords are great I recommend this book because you get a fun, exciting retelling of the Shakespeare s Hamlet The relationships are filled out Events that happen off stage in the play take front stage in the book The dialogs are modern, and this did bother me occasionally, but not often I admit, when Hamlet exclaimed Bullocks I was a bit thrown A few additional characters are thrown in Yorick and Gregor Yorick is a clever invention Why he was added is also explained in an afterword He is a wonderful addition Voltemand s role is expanded The central questions is Hamlet sick, is he feigning insanity and why does he feel as he does are fleshed out Polonius is wicked, but how should we view Claudius Ophelia is an interesting character This is not only a tragedy and an exciting story, but also a character study too Pirates and ghosts and murders galore A story of revenge and love.Well known lines which we have all heard before are thrown into the dialogs.Richard Armitage reads the audiobook Well, I don t seem to love his performance as much as others He doesn t just read the lines, he acts them Most people love this I could hear when Yorick, the jester, was speaking I loved his voice Others I could not distinguish between It bugged me that resund is not correctly pronounced, but I doubt this will bother non Scandinavians The Danes sounded so darn English I had lots of fun listening to this.

    No my heart just can t hide that old feelin insideWay deep down insideOh baby, you know when I look in your eyes I go crazy I Go Crazy, Paul Davis, 19774.6 audiobookA splendid piece of entertainment One of Shakespeare s greatest tragedies retold in modern day language in the form of a short novel performed by the supremely talented British actor, Richard Armitage.Mr Armitage doesn t just read or narrate, he performs this novel adaptation of Hamlet, employing different voices and tones without annoying sound effects or technical feats It is amazing what a great actor s voice and talent can produce.

    A pretty thoroughly re imagined story If you are a purest that thinks that any treatment of this story is an affront to the Bard, then you probably need to move your snobby little self down the aisle to read something else I thought it was clever, imaginative, and fun And no one other than Richard Armitage ever should be hired to read a book again Thorin has the voice.

    I m not going to lie I wouldn t have picked this up had it not been narrated by Richard Armitage I enjoyed it, though, and Richard s narration than earned it the final, firth star.I ve only half read the play years ago, so I can t say I would have noticed most changes if it weren t for the authors afterword Part of my winter break plans is to re read some classics, so I ll try rereading the original play Maybe my view of this will change afterwards, but I doubt it.

    Richard Armitage perfection I swear, the man could read the phone book and I d listen to it What a voice I really hope he does audiobooks in the future I d give the story itself 4 stars, but his narration adds on a star I liked the different voices he used for each characters and as I m sure others have said, he really acts this than just reading it He really made the story come alive for me.

    Both this novelization of Hamlet and Hartley Hewson s novelization of Macbeth number among my favorite ever adaptations of the plays They are imaginative, exciting, and thrillingly paced, capturing the high emotional pitch of dramatic tragedy They are also exquisitely attentive to the Shakespearean texts Hartley and Hewson know the plays intimately, and they know the critical questions that continue to preoccupy readers and critics What parts of Hamlet s madness are feigned, and what real Why is Ophelia so feisty at the beginning of the play and so infuriatingly passive later on Where in the world did those pirates come from Their elaborations of the Shakespearean plays offer imaginative answers to these and other cruxes with humor, wit, and intelligence Can t recommend highly enough.

    Brilliant Sublime Refreshing And surprisingly gratifying I m ecstatic I read nay, listened to this, and I recommend it without hesitation.How many times have you seen Hamlet performed If you ve never seen the show performed, and you don t know the familiar story, I wonder how you d receive this adaptation Frankly, I wouldn t be surprised if this gripping, carefully crafted retelling of the story stood on its own, with no history or preconceived notions But that s a guess, and I assume that, in this day and age, Hamlet remains one of he most ubiquitous staples of the stage, also accessible as a popular movie How many different productions, sets, costumes, settings, epochs, and approaches have you seen employed Isn t that one of the great attractions of Shakespeare that the work is so amenable to varied interpretation and reinvention If so, than this audio book is pure genius But let me get one key thing out of the way if you consider yourself a purist, and if you believe although I m not sure how you could believe this that there is a single, definitive, authoritative, unabridged, original version of Hamlet that you accept and elevate above all others, then this inventive, expanded, embellished, enlivened, and enriched version is not for you Briefly, the authors demonstrate no hesitation in not just altering, but stepping outside of, and adding to, the skeleton of the familiar play.Also, let me be clear, Richard Armitage is an exquisite, polished, eminently entertaining audio book reader I understand that many have purchased this audio book just to bask in the glow of his artful, perfectly paced, and captivating narration in retrospect, that makes sense to me.More broadly, the whole story, ornamentation, interpretation, exposition, prose, narration, and production is a splendid experience.Non spoiler tip to inform your perspective and enrich the experience, be absolutely sure to consume the authors afterword s Icing on the cake Informative, interesting, intelligent Great stuff.I understand the authors also did Macbeth I m off to add that to my to do list I can t wait

    This was so good I listened to the audiobook, and I was totally engrossed If my family tried to talk to me while I was listening to this, they got a quick Shsh This is a novelization of Shakespeare s play I m so impressed with how the writers fleshed out the story and created a thriller I truly felt like I was listening to one of the greatest stories told expertly As for the narration, Richard Armitage has the best voice, and it was a pleasure to listen to him.
