Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes and No. Magnificent performances by some of the greatest Shakespearean actors, but there is no identification. The scenes blend into one another without a pause and the listener is left to recognize the actor's voice (or not) and even identify the play (or not). Entertaining for those familiar with the plays.
