To Be or Not To Be is the choose-your-own-path version of Hamlet by New York Times best-selling author Ryan North, who you may also know from Dinosaur Comics or the Adventure Time comic. In this book you can play as Hamlet, Ophelia, or King Hamlet, but if you choose him you die on the first page and have to play as a ghost. It's pretty awesome!
Readers can follow Yorick skull markers to stick closely to Shakespeare's plot, or go off-script and explore alternative possibilities filled with rad jokes and also puzzles. Each ending in the book is accompanied by a full-colour, full-page illustration by one of the 65 most excellent artists working today, so each rereading yields new surprises and rewards.
Inventive devices like a book-within-a-book (to mirror Hamlet's play-within-a-play) take full advantage of the gamebook medium and liven up the original story for even the most disinterested of Shakespeare readers! To Be or Not to Be is the Kickstarter sensation that over 15,000 people backed in just one month, and which became the number-one most funded publishing project ever on Kickstarter.com.
