this is not unabridged!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who wants a basic intro to the play would like this. But really not for any afficionado of Shakespeare.

If you’ve listened to books by William Shakespeare before, how does this one compare?

This is the worst of the Shakespeare plays that I have listened to.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The sound quality is not that great - there is a constant hum in the background. Also, the male actors' voices are quite similar and so you have a difficulty in identifying the speaker.

Any additional comments?

Big problem with this is that it is NOT unabridged. Whole scenes have been deleted or abbreviated. The cover says that it is unabridged, so not sure if that is simply being deceptive or what it is referring to.

For a Shakespeare lover hoping to get a faithful, full version of the play, this is not it.

However, the actress speaking the part of Cleopatra does a great job.

unabridged?

It claims is unabridged but that is a complete lie! It's missing entire scenes. I was following along. It skips pages too. I'm fine with abridged if that's what I'm expecting, but don't claim it's unabridged.

Not the entire text

What would have made Antony and Cleopatra (Dramatized) better?

The text has been edited down to the point I cannot follow along with the play.
