    The 5 main characters are H, a, m, l, and t. Yorik is in there too, but 'e plays a minor role. I hope he uses a stunt man, poor fellow. The plot is like this. Hamlet stomps around the castle looking for a bee or two, killing main characters as he goes. At the end everybody grabs a sword, drinks from a goblet, and kills somebody else to the end that all die. It's the least funny of his comedies. I recommend Romeo and Juliet instead. They all die too, but at least there's a chance that they might have sex first.

    You forgot the part about Banquo's ghost!

    Are you talking about the part in Hamlet where Mercutio stabbed Macbeth, and then Banquo's ghost showed up to laugh at Macbeth as he died?

    And then they all sit down for a play.

    Alas, poor Tormund! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite
    jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath meant to read Hamlet a
    thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in his imagination it is!
    My gorge rises at it.

    Watch it, or I'll pour poison in your ear like Hamlet did to his father Shylock at the behest of his mother, Desdemona.

    Honestly, tormund, this is much ado about nothing. There aren't many novel versions of plays, so it should be pretty easy to flip the book open to any page and come across at least 2 or 3 character names.

    To read, or not to read, that is the question.
