this is not unabridged!
Someone who wants a basic intro to the play would like this. But really not for any afficionado of Shakespeare.
This is the worst of the Shakespeare plays that I have listened to.
The sound quality is not that great - there is a constant hum in the background. Also, the male actors' voices are quite similar and so you have a difficulty in identifying the speaker.
Big problem with this is that it is NOT unabridged. Whole scenes have been deleted or abbreviated. The cover says that it is unabridged, so not sure if that is simply being deceptive or what it is referring to.
For a Shakespeare lover hoping to get a faithful, full version of the play, this is not it.
However, the actress speaking the part of Cleopatra does a great job.
