Very Helpful

I have to read Shakespeare for my UCLA class. I was dreading just reading it by myself. We were encourage to watch performances of the production to help us understand what's going on. I had some extra credits at audibles, so I purchased this audio book which was very helpful.

The "Pass Master" or narrator did a very good job of guiding me through the play. For my assignment, I read along. The "Pass Master" explains thing well. She translates unfamiliar terms, talks about theme and summarizes passages well.

The play it's (with commentary) is very long (nearly 5 hours) but I felt I got so much more out of this audio version than I would have if I just read it or even watched it.

There was another audio book that was a performance and commentary but because the audio clip did not give an example of how the performance and commentary would be mixed, I went with this audio because the sample demonstrated how the two were intermixed. I like the way the "pass master" interjects. Her voice is delightful to listen to.

I wish they had "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "Much Ado About Nothing" Henry the forth", Henry the 5th and hamlet in this series. That would make my last quarter at school go so well.

Great for class!

I used this with my class of 9th grade students. It is really very good. The play is read by different voices and there is a moderator who stops things when it gets confusing and explains what is going on. She gives a lot of history as well, which I thought was helpful.

Amazingly helpful !

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

I would definitely recommend this for anyone studying. Easy to follow and explained in a way that the information sticks in your mind.

Any additional comments?

I accidentally bought the original audio for my daughter to use as a study guide not knowing about this series. I am so happy she found them as she said it has helped so much and have since bought others in the series too. Excellent !
