    "Why Can't they Call this Henry IV, Part II?"

    This is hard to find in the Audible catalog because of its name. I felt the Part II was better done than the part I, especially when compared against the Arkangel version (the clear winner to me in Part I, probably a tie for thsi version). In the play, the characters are less likeable, and politics is more to the fore. Well done, and it is important to have both pieces of the story.

    Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!

    "Powerful language"

    I always thought HIVII was more or less a placeholder between the more exciting Part I and the more famous Henry V. Listening to this production, however, changed my mind. The language here is masterful; there are some gorgeous speeches by the old King. If you have never experienced this trilogy, try this BBC audio. But don't start here - definitely go for Part I first and finish up with Henry V. At Audible, Shakespeare plays are a bargain!
