Author: William Shakespeare

Quote: We are arrant Knaves all; believe none of us.

Why you should read this book: Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, has to cope with his father's death, his mother's licentiousness, his uncle's villiany, his lover's rejection, and her father's interference, while trying to satisfy a ghost demanding revenge. No wonder he talks like he's out of his mind. But Hamlet is a smart guy, and he has plenty to say on the nature of life and death, love and loss, anger and love, before it all comes crashing down.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't want to be conversant with one of the most influential works of English literature ever penned.
