Sort By: Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden series The Tomorrow Series When Ellie and six of her friends return home from a camping trip deep in the bush, they find things hideously wrong -- their families gone, houses empty and abandoned, pets and stock dead.

Gradually they begin to comprehend that their country has been invaded and everyone in the town has been taken prisoner. As the horrible reality of the situation becomes evident they have to make a life-and Read more 5.

We've lived in a war zone since January, and now it's July. So short a time, so long a time. I'm an expert on fear now. I think I've felt every strong feeling there is: But fear's the greatest of them all.

Nothing reaches inside and grabs you by the guts the way fear does. Hamlet is a mess and Ophelia is nothing but a caricature of a sex starved adolescent.

I was very disapointed with this effort and didn't finish the book. Reading this has inspired me to go back and read the play again so in that respect it was a worthwhile effort. In all others though, it seems to be a giant missed opportunity to do something that could have been great.

Nicola Mansfield Top Contributor: DC Comics. This is Boring. Reason for Reading: I enjoy Shakespeare retellings and Hamlet is probably my favourite Shakespeare. The book tells the story of Shakespeare's Hamlet. The plot is there and all the major points are present. The author uses some of the original language while modernizing it yet keeping all the most famous quotes such as "to be or not to be". So to read this book one does get the plot of Shakespeare's Hamlet without having to read or experience the original.

But I was not impressed with this retelling at all. The darkness, brooding atmosphere of the original is missing. The time period is vague, it could be the recent past or timeless ages past.

But most of all the portrayals of Hamlet and Ophelia are nothing as they are in the original. Ophelia is shown as nothing but a wanton sex-craving girl who dreams of nothing but mentally luring Hamlet to come to her. Her suicide is all matter of fact and hardly anyone seems to even care, least of all Hamlet who has much larger problems to deal with. Of course, as in the play, major plot point, it is Ophelia's brother who is upset at her death.

My greatest joy in the original plot of Hamlet is the question of his sanity.

The movie starring Kenneth Branagh is a fabulous adaptation portraying this. Has Hamlet really gone insane or is he only pretending? This whole issue has been removed from Marsden's version.

People around Hamlet speak of his madness as they would today of a teenager's rebellious stage. Hamlet himself speaks of his madness as if it were a cold. This version lacks passion and the intricacies of the original plot. And on top of all that, the appearance of Hamlet's father's ghost is a very brief single episode which, of course, plants the seed of revenge but is hardly an experience that could cause madness in anyone.

All to say this is rather boring if you already know the plot of Hamlet and I wouldn't recommend it as an introduction; there must be something better out there.

Not recommended. Something's rotten in Denmark, but this time, it's not Shakespeare's normally confusing play. Marsden does a fantastic job of taking the Bard's poetic writing and updating it for modern readers. Hamlet: A Novel eBook: John Marsden: Kindle Store

Hamlet still faces issues the original author set for him an unfaithful mother, a murderous uncle, the hauntingly attractive Ophelia , but the reader is able to delve more deeply into the characters as they are brought to life by Marsden's beautiful prose.

Since this is a modern version, it does have a few instances of cursing as well as some sexual innuendo, so I feel it would be better suited to older teens and adults. Reviewed by: Joan Stradling. One person found this helpful.

Kindle Edition. Fun read. And no test afterwards. I really liked the book. It's a great psychoanalysis of the characters and helps unearth some dirt on what all the characters think, act and do. Overall, a must read for fans of Shakespeare.
