    In today's Wall St. Journal from an article on audiobooks:
    British novelist David Hewson's "...novelizations of "MacBeth" and "Hamlet" which he co-wrote with A.J. HARTLEY, a thriller writer and Shakespeare scholar at the UNC Charlotte. The 9-hour and 45-min novelization of "Macbeth," which paints a much more sympathetic portrait of Shakespeare's power-hungry protagonist, generated more than 1000 reviews on Audible and drew an average of 4 stars." ...Hamlet [which] will be released this fall "features a punchier Ophelia, a less gloomy Hamlet, and swaps in snappy dialogue for Hamlet's famous soliloquies." punchy?

    Is old Hamlet's ghost demonic or angelic?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
