Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead Review

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead - Tom Stoppard

This was one of those rare moments when I actually saw the movie before I read the book.  Only because at the time I didn't know it was original a book.  So when I stumbled across this book at the library, I finally picked up.  I couldn't have made a better decision.  The movie is one of my favorites, and now so is the book.  One of my favorite bits about the book is actually gives the scenes in Hamlet that correspond with certain parts. Since it had been a while since I'd read Hamlet it helpful to have a refresher on what was going on around Ros and Guil.  Sadly the book is pretty small, but so is the lifeline of both of these characters.  It was brilliant, hilarious, and of course a little upsetting because Ros and Guil are dead.
