    Combined for great value! The multi-award-winning SmartPass study guide with and without commentary options. Full-cast, unabridged performance with comprehensive commentary and analysis for any student to fully understand and appreciate the play. The poetry of Shakespeare's star crossed lovers is poignantly performed and expertly explained in this unique production: "Passion lends them power."

    "Narrator cloying, uses modern British slang"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I found the Narrator on this title to be annoying: overly enthusiastic over every detail. This became cloying after 10 minutes or so.

    It was also not helpful for me to have Elizabethan English explained using modern British slang. Who is the intended audience here? It looks like it's British teenagers.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is, of course, timeless.


    What aspect of the narrators’s performance would you have changed?

    A more universal English would have been more appropriate, since this title is sold on both sides of the "pond", to adults of all ages.


    What character would you cut from SmartPass Plus Audio Education Study Guide to Romeo and Juliet (Unabridged, Dramatised, Commentary Options)?

    Huh?
