    The multi award-winning SmartPass study guide with and without commentary options. This is a full-cast, unabridged performance with comprehensive commentary and analysis for any student to fully understand and appreciate the play. Universally accepted as Shakespeare's finest play, we peel back the layers of Hamlet to discover how and why it deserves such a place of honour in world literature.

    Would you consider the audio edition of SmartPass Plus Audio Education Study Guide to Hamlet (Dramatised, Commentary Options) to be better than the print version?

    I do not believe there could be a print version as the live acting is so essential to the teaching that is done. I suppose that I could read Hamlet, but listening to it performed is so much better. I have listened to a number of the SmartPass audio renditions of Shakespeare and have gone from being confused about the content, the action, the issues involved and even the language, to being able to watch Shakespeare and really enjoy it. The Pass Master (Mistress?) does such an excellent job of pulling in the understanding of the way things are moving forward, to tying in to the political commentary that is being made, to just really beginning to understand the motivations of the characters. Take the long path from the beginning and listen with all of the instruction and then just listen to the play at the end (no commentary on the replay except as necessary to set the scene). I love SmartPass.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is Shakespeare's greatest story.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Hamlet


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very affecting, it has so much sadness in it. If people would just talk there could have been a lot less bloodshed, but isn't that the way it is?
