This was my first try at listening to Shakespeare and it was enthralling. There's something about listening to the story unfold and imagining the settings and situations that, I believe, engage you more than even watching the play. The commentary was excellent! In fact as a Shakespeare novice, I don't think I would have gotten nearly as much out of it.
This is the second "Shakespeare Appreciated" recording I have listened to. The first was "Julius Caesar". The performance was just as good but the commentary was almost non-existent. Pretty much "Hamlet enters..." or "Hamlet exits...” If you have no concern for the commentary you will enjoy this.
