Many of our favorite stars have lent their storytelling talents to audiobooks. Due to the overwhelmingly positive listener response to Audible Studios' A List Collection and Signature Performance series, we wanted to showcase the best star-powered performances in our store. From Kate Winslet (Thérèse Raquin) to Jake Gyllenhaal (The Great Gatsby) to Bryan Cranston (The Things They Carried), you'll find a wide selection of great listens from some of today's biggest names. Our most recent must-listen? Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel by A.J. Hartley and David Hewson, narrated by Richard Armitage (The Hobbit).
Following the success of Audie Award-nominated Macbeth: A Novel, A.J. Hartley and David Hewson have teamed up once again with Audible Studios to reimagine one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies: Hamlet. Hartley and Hewson's modernized language, newly-imagined scenes, and unexpected plot twists revitalize the original story, making for an exciting and inventive audio-only adventure. Drawing on his experience with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) narrates this dark tale with gravitas, guiding the listener through Hamlet's perilous world of madness, revenge, and murder. This is Hamlet as you've never experienced it before.
