Did anyone else see the title and think this was Hamlet with penguins?

It would have been great. Instead of a king, it would have an Emperor!



Just me, huh?

I think so; although a Dr Seuss mashup would've been great - Green Eggs and Hamlet.

My words fly up, my thoughts remain below;
I do not like green eggs and hamlet!

Of course, you don't have to read the whole thing, the actual text of Hamlet itself is only a small portion of this book. The rest is materials you can use to enhance your understanding. I read Dante's Inferno and Purgatory, but without footnotes explaining I was reading, I wouldn't have been able to read them. I want to read his Paradise, but although I could read it for free, I'll wait until I get a version that has explanatory footnotes. These kind of extras are one way to add value to a public domain work, making it worthwhile for people to pay for.

'Xactly! We'll watch - maybe they will put some of the other ones on sale, too. I know a lot of people have collected these in paperback and will happy to get them as ebooks. I found the footnotes particularly helpful, also.

Christopher Moore's Fool has a little Green Eggs and Hamlet: the story of a young prince of Denmark who goes mad, drowns his girlfriend, and in his remorse forces spoiled breakfast on all whom he meets.

"Green eggs, or not green eggs? That is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to eat them in a box, with a fox—"

Don't get me wrong. It's nice to see added material to the public domain classics.

But... It's another way to make a few more bucks from old material and pull it back under copyright. Personally, I think I'll pass it up.

Or cents in this case. It is only $0.01! That is hard to pass up.

Picked up both. Thanks!

Only one customer review (Jun 2009) and it was given 2 stars because of formatting issues. Has this been resolved for newer Kindles?
