Publisher's Summary

Pericles, Prince of Tyre, undergoes a tyrant's fury, storm, and shipwreck. He wins love and suffers loss, but what is lost may also be found.

With the ancient poet Gower acting as narrator, we follow the adventures of Pericles from young manhood to maturity. This strange and powerful tale of loss and recovery is the first in the group of romance comedies created by Shakespeare at the end of his dramatic career.

Sir John Gielgud plays Gower, and Nigel Terry is Pericles. Thaisa is played by Stella Gonet and Marina by Julie Cox.

An excellent performance!

Where does Pericles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pericles is an odd play and this is about as good a realisation of it as I can imagine. It is also one of the best Shakespeare performances I have found outside of the BBC productions so far.

Would you be willing to try another book from William Shakespeare? Why or why not?

Sure. He's quite good isn't he?

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

The Northern Irish Pirate.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Incest. Shipwrecks. Accidental Burials. Pirates. Assassins. And Weddings. Get your ticket.

Any additional comments?

John Gielgud is sounding great here. Worth it for his voice alone.
