"Hamlet is Truthy, Witty and Timely"

Hamlet doesn't suck. In fact, it's action packed, cleverly plotted and it doesn't have a stupid ending. In fact, as far as I'm concerned, it has one of the greatest final scenes of any play, ever! I mean, everyone dies! Look, it's one of the most famous stories ever, but it really is that good! I've read it several times, and I'm always getting more out of it than I did before, whether I intend to or not. There's not a single boring scene in here, and not a single dull character, either. The interactions between these people are so intense, so inspired and so brilliant that, well, Shakespeare is still famous to this day.

Shakespearean English is a bit tough at first, but so long as you keep reading it out loud, you're golden! Also, this play is pretty long. There are a lot of lines in here that are quoted more than necessary, it's true, but there are also many hidden treasures that you can adopt for your daily use! Why not? If the Bard wrote it, its standard!
