I will qualify my review with the following: This was the first audio book I have completed, and I have not seen "The Tempest" as a production.
I enjoyed this audio book. It helped me to understand the characters and setting better than simply reading the play from a written book. It could be helpful to have Act and Scene information announced as the book progresses. The sound effects (sea waves, music for Ariel) served to promote understanding of the play's content.
At the end of this audiobook the "Declaration of Independence" and "Constitution of the United States" are read. I found this book to be an excellent alternative delivery method for U.S. History. I would recommend this to students taking a course in the Revolutionary War and the War for Independence.
