Most definitely abridged!

Sections of the play are missing. Beginning of II.i.1-72 between Polonius and Reynaldo are gone. Also in Act II.ii.220 - 390, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are missing. I suppose some director thought the sections irrelevant to the overall story, but I purchased an "unabridged" version because I wanted to hear the entire play and follow along in my text. I'm very disappointed.

Not the Hamlet for Me

Although the narrators did a fine job of sticking to the text, I found this version difficult to listen to. It sounded "echoy" at times, as if a microphone had been placed on a stage and the actors were gathered around it. I stuck through the entire play and was disappointed. I opted for a different version and deleted this one from my collection. I must say, this was an inexpensive version, but costly in the end. This was definitely NOT the Hamlet for me.
