    "Recording could be better"
    What did you like best about Medea? What did you like least?

    I liked the story itself and having different voices perform each character. The worst part of this was the music is loud and over powers the speech sometimes, which makes listening difficult, the last 10 mins started giving me a headache. Also the voices sometimes dropped too low. Overall not bad, but could have been much better for what it is, a voice recording created specifically so one does not have to read the book. Also a narrator would have been nice explaining the movement of characters, etc, since this is a play but was not watching it.

    "Hard to hear"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    yes it was because I had to read it for class and it helped me get it done quickly in one sitting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Medea because she is interesting and raises a lot of questions about monstrosity and passion.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Judith Anderson and Anthony Quayle ’s performances?

    I don't think so. The volume of their voices changed way too often. Some points I couldn't even hear the chorus and then the next person would talk and it would be very loud. I had to adjust the volume often. also the music was unnecessary and also added hearing difficulty.


    Did Medea inspire you to do anything?

    it inspired my statements of discussion for my class


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the stage directions would have been read as well. The narrators did a good job of changing their voices for the different people.

    "so so"

    Full marks to the suppliers for trying- we don't have nearly enough classic drama avaiable on Audible, but this is pretty old and more care should have been taken in the remastering- if it ever was remastered.
