    "Fantastic!"

    My children needed this book for homework. They were dreading reading it. The minute they heard this version, complete with commentary and study aide, they no longer felt as though the story was boring or difficult to understand. When they have difficult books to read for homework, we now look specifically for these versions.

    "Superb Performance (Not to mention Guide)!"

    The actual reading of the theatrical work is superb and engrossing. Hamlet and the rest of the character cast as marvelously voiced and acted with such an energy and clarity of voice that you can't help but imagine the scenes in a vivid detail.

    The guide portion, cleverly and discreetly inserted behind every passage that benefits from clarification, does not detract from the performance itself. The guide actually adds quite a lot to the performance, as she rallies you and inflects her own (merited) feelings as the play continues.

    Overall, this is a great read for a novice Hamleteer as well as a seasoned veteran of the work--if you become bored with the SmartPass clarifications, you can simply switch over to the uninterrupted reading which is downloaded as a second file. Excellent!

    "WOW! Super helpful and fun to listen to!"

    This audio book was one of the most helpful guides for Hamlet. I have to read this for my AP Literature class but it was too difficult to understand on my own so this was a wonderful guide. I really enjoyed the dramatised version of the play and the voice actors as well. The commentator gives really helpful notes and analysis which definitely gave more insight on the play. You should definitely grab a paper copy of the book and follow along. You won't regret it!
