Just Not For Me
Reviewed in the United States on July 4, 2016
I liked the premise of this more than I actually liked the story itself. By the time I got 2/3 the was thru the story I was well and truly tired of all the Shakespearean language. Now I can't fault the writers for that. The title is called "Kill Shakespeare" but after a brief while it's just irksome. I also found the changes from one story line or plot to the next disjointed and difficult to follow. Hamlet keeps being pulled or dropped into other character's story lines and I found myself struggling with associating characters with their original play. Frankly, I'm too old and it's been 30+ years since I've read any of his plays. Needless to say, I admit to just giving up at the 75% mark. I no longer cared if Hamlet managed to find and kill Shakespeare.
