Elsinore Airport Stopover

As a precocious pre-teen, I loved Jan Mark's 1980s short stories for young adults. I'd never heard of Heathrow Nights but knew I trusted Jan Mark's ability to write from the heads of young people, sensitivity and powerfully.

This is an excellent, well paced and slightly understated audiobook, that manages to capture the complexity of a young man navigating grief and the between-space of later adolescence.

The parelells with Hamlet are considered, delicately drawn, and genuinely serve the plot and the development of Russell's character and that of 'Claudius'. The narrator is spot on for the book as well, deliberate and thoughtful without getting in the way. Would recommend Heathrow Nights as an intro to Jan Mark's YA novels and short stories.
