    Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, agrees to lend Antonio, a Venetian merchant, three thousand ducats so that his friend Bassanio can afford to court his love, Portia. However, Shylock has one condition: Should the loan go unpaid, he will be entitled to a pound of Antonio's own flesh. Meanwhile in Belmont, according to the terms of her father's will, Portia's many suitors must choose correctly from three caskets. Bassanio arrives at Portia's estate and they declare their love for one another before he picks the correct casket.

    Tad Davis says: "Great production, difficult play"
    "Wonderful way to read Shakespere!!!"
    Overall

    A fantastic way to better understand olde english! Especially if you have a written copy you are following along with! I bought this for my son who was struggling trying to finish all his IB program! This saved the day! He was able to listen to it while traveling to and from school and truely understand it!!

    Story

    Karigan G’ladheon, running away from school, is traveling through a deep forest when a galloping horse pounds up to her, its rider impaled by two black-shafted arrows. With his dying breath, he tells her he is a Green Rider, one of the magical messengers of the King. Before he dies, he makes Karigan swear to deliver the message he’s carrying, and gives her his green coat, with the symbolic brooch of his office.

    Story
    Would you listen to Green Rider again? Why?

    Yes, I was so happy to find a new author (for me) that created the same type of world and feeling as The Lord of the Rings (albiet on a lighter level). A lite mix of magic, castles, horse riding and unexpected events. Yet most of all I enjoyed that the main character is a young lady, facing self doubts, fears and unexpected events, yet approaches each obstacle with undaunting honor, and a lack of harsh, crude language or love/lust scenes.


    What other book might you compare Green Rider to and why?

    The Kris Longknife Series. Another series of a young lady facing adversity although in space not on land.


    What does Ellen Archer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love her different accents. It is always a pleasure and a shock to hear them.


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

    After being expelled from her boarding school when she stood up against the school's wealthy bullies, Carrigan finds her escape from her father's wrath a bit more difficult than expected and her life taking a completely unexpected and surprising ride.


    Any additional comments?

    A great series for people who like clean wholesome books with positive outcomes
