Free download · E-book, or Kindle E-pub ç Lisa M. Klein Free read Ophelia AUTHOR Lisa M. Klein 109 Phelia devises a treacherous plan to escape from Elsinore forever with one very dangerous secretLisa Klein's Ophelia tells the story of a young woman falling in love searching for her place in the world and finding the strength to survive Sharp and literary dark and romantic this dramatic story holds readers in its grip until the final heartrending scene. Seriously this is Hamlet fanfic with OpheliaHoratio as the OTPI can t help but compare this unfavorably to Ursula K LeGuin s Lavinia Both examine a famous male dominated text from the perspective of the extremely marginalized love interest But LeGuin brilliantly turns the story on its head Her Lavinia has a strong enough voice of her own to really bring a new perspective to the Aeneid I felt like the original gained new depths as a result Ophelia on the other hand is a pale shadow of the original I don t feel like I have new things to think about I don t even feel like this is a particularly interesting interpretation of the character She s fine the plot s fine everything s fine but there s no spark Hamlet himself never particularly comes alive And Ophelia does just as much pointless waffling as her love only less poetically Very minor spoilers that you find out anyway on the first page she survives Actually she wanders out of the play probably two thirds of the way into the book and wanders into her own not particularly interesting plot In which she continues to waffle a lot keeping secrets for no reason she bothers to justify it s justifiable the author just chooses not to do so than weakly MehHere s where my rating system breaks down Lady Lazarus was ambitious but deeply flawed She reached high and I think may have failed but did so with passion Ophelia on the other hand has far fewer technical flaws It s just kind of lifeless Both average out to middle of the road books but really I d rather read the fiery but irritatingly flawed book than the mostly unobjectionable dishwater one
