According to an article I read on the live performance of this play in London, some critics gave Ejiofor positive reviews while McGregor and Reilly did not fare as well. Whip me such foolish critics! Others there are who recognize McGregor's rendition of Honest Iago as nearly flawless; who can see that he pulls off the relentlessly ruminative diabolical genius with precision. And such a one do I profess myself. I've listened to many audible dramatizations of Shakespeare, and this one is probably the best.

What did you love best about Othello (Dramatized)?
The performances were all excellent I thought! As always, choices are made about what to cut out, but it was done well.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I'm not sure in this era of audiobooks why you would read Shakespeare any other way! I read the plays a lot in my youth, but this play really sings when you hear the lines spoken.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I didn't but I certainly could have.
Any additional comments?
A way to hear many favorite actors on audio.

The dramatization was impeccable! I loved it! There are a few lines cut out here and there that shouldn't be in my opinion, as every line is important to the literary intention of the writer, and few if not any more so than Shakespeare. Despite this, these omitted lines did not inhibit my understanding of the tragedy in any shape or form.

Would you consider the audio edition of Othello (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?
Nah. Just more convenient. Can play the videogames at the same time, or listen with my eyes closed and chillaxin.
What did you like best about this story?
So far ahead of it's time i don't even.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The usual mouthwords.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Othello unchained, by Quentin Tarantino:
In a world,
where people take an extremely long time to say things:
It is as sure as you are Roderigo,
Were I the Moor I would not be Iago.
In following him, I follow but myself.
Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty,
But seeming so for my particular end.
For when my outward action doth demonstrate
The native act and figure of my heart
In complement extern, 'tis not long after
But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
For daws to peck at. I am not what I am."
One man kills his waifu.
