This week, I've chosen...
Publisher: Poppy (Hardcover)
Release Date: July 5, 2011
Meet Ophelia: a blonde, beautiful high-school senior and long-time girlfriend of Prince Hamlet of Denmark. Her life is dominated not only by her boyfriend's fame and his overbearing family, but also by the paparazzi who hound them wherever they go. As the devastatingly handsome Hamlet spirals into madness after the mysterious death of his father, the King, Ophelia rides out his crazy roller coaster life, and lives to tell about it. In live television interviews, of course.
Passion, romance, drama, humor, and tragedy intertwine in this compulsively readable debut novel, told by a strong-willed, modern-day Ophelia.This one sounds like fun. I've read a bunch of modern day Shakespeares and really enjoy them. Modern day Hamlet spiralling into madness and then telling about it on TV? I'd go for that. I'm not overly impressed with the cover, but it's okay. I prefer to be interested in the story anyway!
