the Shakespeare Appreciated series is outstanding

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get the most out of Shakespeare. The commentary and its historical notes and explanatory comments open up the text to everyone. Particularly recommended for students who need to read Shakespeare.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Best to take it by chunks to digest the acts/scenes.

Any additional comments?

Wish there were more Shakespeare plays in this series.

Awesome Study Aide and Excellent Performances

Just terrific. Enough background and footnote type commentaryso that at no point are you bored or lost. Terrific for the Shalespeare novice. Listen to this and then watch the film or see the play and you will appreciate Shakespeare. My only complaint is that Smart Pass do not have more of Shakespeare's plays available yet in this ingenious format.
