    Story
    (27)

    Hamlet, which dates from 1600-1601, is the first in Shakespeare's great series of four tragedies. In writing this extraordinary play, Shakespeare effectively re-invented tragedy after an interval of roughly 2,000 years - you would have to go back to the Greek dramatists of fifth century Athens to find anything of comparable depth and maturity. This production features the voice of Anton Lesser as Hamlet along with a full cast.

    Kirby says: "Excellent Copy"
    "Splendid performance."
    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Hamlet the most enjoyable?

    The obvious comfort the actors had in performing their roles. The expression that the actors put into their roles really made the play enjoyable for me.


    What other book might you compare Hamlet to and why?

    Othello. Both are powerhouse plays in the which the actors get to really step up and give exceptional performances.


    What does Anton Lesser and full cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The real sense of seeing the play performed and real emotions expressed.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An unsurpassed performance of Shakespeare's greatest work.


    Any additional comments?

    Outstanding performance. I'm already listening to it for a second time. Thank you.
