    Experience Hamlet as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world. The unabridged drama is also presented without commentary.

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

    I would recommend this book to any students who may be studying Hamlet, both for the insight into how it is performed and the integrated commentary which fills in an enormous amount of background detail without slowing down the story too much.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The most outstanding feature was the research and insight that went into the commentary. This is not a cheap cash in on a famous title.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The book is very dense and may give you a bit of indigestion if listened to quickly. That said, I was in a hurry and used the 2x speed on the iPhone and was still able to follow it well.


    Any additional comments?

    An important note: if you just want to listen to the dramatized reading of the play, just play Part 2. It doesn't have any commentary.

  • The Case for a Creator

    Story

    Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded. Today science is supports the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. Darwinism has faltered in the face of facts and hard reason. Science definitely gives faith a boost as new findings emerge about the complexity of our universe. Strobel re-examines the theories that once led him away from God. You'll encounter discoveries from cosmology, DNA research, and human consciousness that present evidence in The Case for a Creator.

    Alan Rither says: "Excellent Summary of Apologetics"
    "Narrow Perspective"
    Overall

    This book had some interesting insights into scientific discovery. Unfortunately, the whole thing seemed to be from the Intelligent Design perspective. I would have liked to hear some scientists and theologians talk about science and religion who were from the mainstream.
