Where does Pericles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Pericles is an odd play and this is about as good a realisation of it as I can imagine. It is also one of the best Shakespeare performances I have found outside of the BBC productions so far.
Would you be willing to try another book from William Shakespeare? Why or why not?
Sure. He's quite good isn't he?
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?
The Northern Irish Pirate.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Incest. Shipwrecks. Accidental Burials. Pirates. Assassins. And Weddings. Get your ticket.
Any additional comments?
John Gielgud is sounding great here. Worth it for his voice alone.
