    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.

    "Great for a Shakespeare beginner!"

    I have always been afraid of Shakespeare because the language and meanings are so different. I didn't think I would be able to understand what the "true" meaning was. This audio was set up perfectly. The first part the narrator interrupts and explains the back story or the particular meaning of a phrase. Once I listened to that I was able to listen to just the dramatized play and I got so much more out of it than I would have listening on my own.

    Amber is the one real world, of which all others including our own Earth are but Shadows. Amber burns in Corwin's blood. Exiled on Shadow Earth for centuries, the prince is about to return to Amber to make a mad and desperate rush upon the throne.

    Would you try another book from Roger Zelazny and/or Alessandro Juliani?

    Roger Zelazny-yes, Alessandro Juliani-no.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Roger Zelazny! I've read Nine Princes in Amber multiple times. I was so excited when I saw it was now available on Audible.com. Unfortunately the narrator has ruined it. Corwin sounds like a college kid and his brothers are ridiculous caricatures.
