    Description

    Winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction 2020
    The Sunday Times best seller

    Two extraordinary people. A love that draws them together. A loss that threatens to tear them apart.

    On a summer's day in 1596, a young girl in Stratford-upon-Avon takes to her bed with a fever. Her twin brother, Hamnet, searches everywhere for help. Why is nobody at home?

    Their mother, Agnes, is over a mile away, in the garden where she grows medicinal herbs. Their father is working in London. Neither parent knows that one of the children will not survive the week.

    Hamnet is a novel inspired by the son of a famous playwright. It is a story of the bond between twins, and of a marriage pushed to the brink by grief. It is also the story of a kestrel and its mistress; flea that boards a ship in Alexandria; and a glovemaker's son who flouts convention in pursuit of the woman he loves. Above all, it is a tender and unforgettable reimagining of a boy whose life has been all but forgotten, but whose name was given to one of the most celebrated plays ever written.

    A heartbreakingly beautiful book

    Stunningly narrated by Daisy Donovan, this story of the family and experience of such a famous figure plunges you into their hearts and the moment as if it happened today. Characters you regretfully let go of at the end of the book and poetic prose. A jewel by Maggie O’Farrell.

    A very intriguing narrative

    A family...not just any family .... we don't know the father's name but we can guess. We all know the name. The performance of this unusual story of love and loss is impressive.

    Amazingly performed

    I am extremely late on the "Hamnet" bandwagon (though it is never too late to have a go at a good story). This was one of the best reviewed novels of 2020 and I sort of understand why after having finished listening to it. Daisy Donovan has a beautiful voice and is a great performer. She was absolutely phenomenal in the first two thirds of the narration, but I found her a tiny bit overdramatic towards the end when reading Agnes' part/stream of consciousness. The story is called "Hamnet" but it revolves mainly around his mother Anne Hathaway ("Agnes" here). The prose is great in my opinion, the characterisation as well for sure although at some point it just felt like too much "Agnes" when I was really enjoying the children's relationships. Oddly enough, the character I enjoyed the least (= Shakespeare himself, fictionalised) was the one mentioned the least too (he doesn't even have a name in the novel, which is a very entertaining choice). He was the least empathetic guy I've read about in a good while and if that's a writing thing, then I'm all for it but I did not like him. The ending was a bit of a blur to me if I'm honest, and only Donovan's performance made me understand Agnes' part was meant to explore heartbreak and a how a family/mother/father deals with mourning the loss of their child when they fail at communicating with one another. The descriptions are fantastic most of the time, but I just feel like something is amiss for me to completely fall head over heels with "Hamnet."

    Superb listening

    One of the best listens, so far. Daisy Donovan's precision delivery of Maggie O'Farrell's wonderful imaging of this story is a singular pleasure in these troubled times of modern plague.

    Not just narrated, ACTED

    Daisy Donovan’s the best freaking narrator out there. Her voices were EXCELLENT. The acting was flipping superb. Loved it. And loved this story! Makes me want to read a biography of Shakespeare (who would have thought!).

    Recommended for fans of historical fictions.

    Though I usually don't like to read fictional stories based on real people, I enjoyed Hamnet, for two reasons: its authenticity and for being faithful to the 1850's. As not much is known of Shakespeare, the author may have had some freedom for creativity, but she doesn't spoil it. The story is not modern, nor medival. That was a huge relief for me.

    I wept...

    This book came highly recommended & I wanted to live it....it was good & the narrater too..... But when it came to the last third of the book describing how the mother (&father) & sibling tried to survive the death of their child & sibling, I wept.....maybe it's because we lost a child many many years ago, but this description just struck so many emotions I could relate to, that it hit me hard. It's not a 'light' book...... But it's still very well written & narrated.

    A tour de force

    Ì loved this book. Beautifully written and beautifully read. This was my first full-length audio book and I found myself really savouring the language, far more than I would do on the written page. It succeeds admirably in portraying what life must have been like in Elizabethan England with the threat of sickness and death always lurking just round the corner, with horses the only mode of transport, the widespread illiteracy, the violence that marked many relationships. The plot is cleverly woven, telling two stories, of birth and death, until they eventually come together. It is also an exploration of grief and of how it is experienced differently by man and woman, driving them apart. The only thing I didn't understand was why Shakespeare called his play after his son, but that didn't detract from this brilliantly crafted story.

    Un roman fascinant

    Un style limpide et profond au service d'une histoire aussi romanesque que réaliste. On se trouve transporté dans un autre monde, dans une autre époque.
    La narratrice en français Sara Basiani donne du sens aux mots les plus simples. Elle a une voix merveilleuse qui déroule ce récit avec une simplicité qui va droit au coeur.

    Gorgeous

    This is all the backstory Shakespeare needs and so much more ❤️. The speaker only adds to the magic; she did a fantastic job.
