Following the success of Audie Award-nominated Macbeth: A Novel, A.J. Hartley and David Hewson have teamed up once again with Audible Studios to reimagine one of Shakespeare's most beloved tragedies: Hamlet. Hartley and Hewson’s creative talents and their respect for the Bard add fresh depth and perspective to his centuries-old classic. Modernized language, newly-imagined scenes, and unexpected plot twists revitalize the original story, making for an exciting and inventive audio-only adventure. This is Hamlet as you've never experienced it before.
It is a tale of ghosts, of madness, of revenge - of old alliances giving way to new intrigues. Denmark is changing, shaking off its medieval past. War with Norway is on the horizon. And Hamlet - son of the old king, nephew of the new - becomes increasingly entangled in a web of deception - and murder. Beautifully performed by actor Richard Armitage (The Hobbit films), Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel takes Shakespeare’s original into unexpected realms, reinventing a story we thought we knew.
