One of shakespeare's four great tragedies.
Hamlet notice that the father's death is a murder.
Hamlet vowed vengeance.
but I think murder is not good.
I think that there was an another way more.

I sympathize with Hamlet. If I were in his place, I would want to do th same thing.But to commit murder is not allowed. Many people are hurt in this book. So this story made me sad.

I enjoyed this book.But there are complicated expressions.So it was too difficult to understand.This story is long and interesting.I was considered so much.I want to read this book after I can read English more. ( )

I knew this book, when I was high school student.
But I have never read this book because I think that this book is difficult.
I heard that this book is interesting, so I want to read.
This book keep me in suspense.
I think Hamlet is very poor person. Because his father was killed by his uncle.
And his mother married the uncle. When he revenge the uncle, he died.
Althogh I think that this book is not difficult, this book is poor story. ( )

Hamlet is a prince of Denmark. But his father ware killed by his uncle. One day, he hear about that. And he think he want to take revenge.
I read Shakespeare's story. So I'm interested in the stories written by him. There are many death in the story, so I was in a littele depressed state. But the last of the story is exciting. ( )
