5.0 out of 5 starsPerfect especially for teaching
Reviewed in the United States on October 27, 2018
I purchased this as a HS English teacher. I searched the web for an audio version that I loved which proved to be fairly difficult; it must be my immense attachment to R + J and the need to get it just right. I stumbled upon this version and immediately had goosebumps. The rendition is beautiful, the readers really let the characters jump off the page and allow for the listener to have more understand of what’s going on.
This is my second year teaching Romeo and Juliet to freshmen, as well as my second year using the audiobook in class. My students read along as we listen to the play. Each year, the Folger audiobook has helped greatly with their understanding and enjoyment of the play. The actors do a wonderful job of communicating the meaning of the text, so the humor and drama come across clearly. While I especially recommend this audiobook for teachers and students, I think it would also be useful for members of the general public with an interest in Shakespeare.

There is no list of what track goes to which Act and scene. This is a serious shortcoming for someone who wants to go right to a particular place. It also is an obstacle for teachers who want to use it in the classroom.
