What made the experience of listening to Hamlet’s Father the most enjoyable?
Brilliant! Finally this strange old tragedy started make sense. Finally there is a certain "rhyme and reason" to the behavior of one of the most famous heroes in dramatic history - Hamlet. Till today it always baffled me, why Hamlet has been so wildly popular through the centuries. Probably it has been touching the same backstory in our subconcsious that OSCard tries to bring forward. Hearing it has been intellectually very satisfying, thank you!

I love Hamlet, and I usually love Orson Scott Card, so I was surprised and thoroughly disappointed to find that Card basically took all the good things about Shakespeare's masterpiece and ruined them. This is not a viable reading of the play, nor is it a retelling. And what's more, it's just not good. The narration is clipped and uninflected. Stay away from this title.
