But she should have had enough brain cells to ask Hamlet whether he was seriously insane or not instead of taking her father’s words as the Gospel...
There’s nothing worse then when a perfectly good series suddenly swerves off course and wrecks in La La Land. It makes me want to grab the author by the throat and demand answers.
