Ophelia - Lisa Klein

I actually really like this. I've been reading through it the last few days and while it's not perfect, and I don't think I'd give it five stars, I'm really enjoying it. It's kind of weird how much Hamlet retellings fascinate me, and this one has a really interesting interpretation of the Hamlet/Ophelia relationship. Though, honestly, I might compare every Ophelia retelling to A Wounded Name, and I really liked that book. 

 

Also, every Hamlet retelling convinces me more and more that Horatio is in love with Ophelia, and I can't really stop myself from shipping it more and more.
