What others are saying about


It sure packs a punch, as it moves from one violent outburst to the next, and the plot continues to unravel hard and fast. Give this a go if you’re in the mood for a quick read, or are interested enough in Shakespeare to want to know how Martin has reworked the Hamlet framework.”

Kim Garner, Student Life

Pop-splat by Ian Martin is one of the most original South African books published in a long time. Martin gives the age-old story of Hamlet a shot of steroids.”

Kelly Adams, Activate

Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, this is a horrible story about horrible people, but it is also horribly readable - even enjoyable in the same way as pornographically sadistic horror films like Hostel and Saw can be enjoyable.”

Aubrey Paton, Sunday Times

One might argue that a narrative based on an existing story can’t be original. This one is. It’s clever, and challenges you emotionally and intellectually.”

Mariana Malan, Die Burger.
