Publisher's Summary

Julius Caesar is one of Shakespeare’s most compelling Roman plays. The plot against Caesar and the infamous assassination scene make for unforgettable listening.

    "Wonderful rendition of the Shakespeare classic"

    The story was well performed and presented, allowing me to visualize the scenery and the interactions. There is a reason this has survived as a western classic!

    I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.

    "A very moving play"

    I have read this before, but this performance of the play was excellent. Very strong acting from the cast. Easy to understand, and a stirring drama that may have you changing sympathies more than once.

    "Quite Enjoyable"

    I'm not sure what I was expecting when I got this, but whatever it was, this performance exceeded them.

    At first it was difficult to switch in "olde English" as I listened to the unique cadence that is Shakespeare, but I soon settled in. The sounds effects, voice acting, and over all performance are quite good.

    As with many "performances", however, I sometimes had difficulty discerning between characters for a few seconds, as to my old ears the actors sometimes sounded the same.

    So, reacquaint yourself with a classic in a new format. I think you'll enjoy the experience.

    "Nicely done with the full cast reading"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. For someone just dabbling in Shakespeare, the cast reading helps lend understanding to the tongue.


    Would you recommend Julius Caesar to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes but only if they think they might be interested in trying a little Shakespeare.


    What three words best describe Andrew Buchan and Sean Barrett ’s performance?

    Passionate, clear, believable.

    Story
    "Sounded like an old radio drama"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    no.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting - Killing Caesar. The least - the story that followed


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It was okay but the differentiation between the characters was weak.


    Do you think Julius Caesar needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. He's dead.


    Any additional comments?

    I just read this book to remember what I read in school and it was cheap and I needed to kill some time before I get my next credit. It was an okay read.

    "Classic story in a classic play"

    I've never had the opportunity to see a stage production of Julius Caesar, but I'm glad I listened to one rather than read the play -- there's so much more in the context of a production that brings a situation to life. This story of political allegiances and personal friendships is a classic one played out not just on the battlefields of the past but in the homes, schools, and workplaces of today, though on a much less fatal scale.....and that's what makes this play a true classic. Add to that is the benefit some of the rather poetic language that has also become a classic ("Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war", "The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones", The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in our stars, but in ourselves").

    "A William Shakespeare Classic!"

    Being one that is not overly familiar with the arts and the great plays of ancient history, I found this book about Julius Caesar, written by William Shakespeare, to be captivating, informing an interesting throughout.

    Now I can see why it’s one of the great plays throughout history, and continues to have a tremendous following both on the stage, in books and movies.

    This book delivers a very consistent flow of information throughout that keeps the audience interested, and helps develop a feeling of being right there.
