PAPERBACK

2016/09/06

The greatest work in English literature, now in the greatest format of English literature: a chooseable-path adventure!
 
When Shakespeare wrote Hamlet he gave the world just one possible storyline, drawn from a constellation of billions of alternate narratives.  And now you can correct that horrible mistake! Play as Hamlet and avenge your father's death—with ruthless efficiency this time. Play as Ophelia and change the world with your scientific brilliance. Play as Hamlet's father and die on the first page, then investigate your own murder… as a ghost! Featuring over 100 different endings, each illustrated by today's greatest artists, incredible side quests, fun puzzles, and a book-within-a-book instead of a play-within-a-play, To Be or Not To Be offers up new surprises and secrets every time you read it.

You decide this all sounds extremely excellent, and that you will definitely purchase this book right away.  Because as the Bard said: “to be or not to be… that is the adventure.”

...You're almost certain that's how it goes.

To Be or Not To Be originally launched as a record-breaking Kickstarter project. This new, reader-friendly edition features the same text and illustrations as the original version, redesigned to take up half as many pages and weigh a whole pound less.

Editorial Reviews

“Reference mixed with irreverence—that's what makes To Be or Not to Be so much fun.”

– Slate

“An idea that is, by most conventional literary standards, terrible, but pushed so far past terrible that it wraps around like a comet slingshotting around the sun and comes back as utterly brilliant.”

– Lev Grossman, Time

“Romeo and/or Juliet is written with the finest distilled charm and genuine enthusiasm. Entertaining and extremely satisfying.”

– Kate Beaton, author of Hark! A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops
