Editorial reviews

William Shakespeare’s Hamlet is reimagined and brought back to life for the modern audience in the brilliant audiobook Hamlet: Shakespeare Appreciated, composed by Simon Potter, Phil and Jools Viner with a commendable narration by Joan Walker, Stephen Elder and Paul Clayton. Part of the Shakespeare Appreciated collection, this unabridged reading of Shakespeare’s famous play is gripping. Listeners have the option to download with or without commentary. The commentary is recommended as it gives a full historical background to the play and Shakespeare himself. This is truly a brilliant experience of one of the most notable plays ever written. Available now from Audible.

Publisher's summary

Experience Hamlet as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world.

The unabridged drama is also presented without commentary. If school turned you off Shakespeare, find out what you've been missing all these years with this beautifully crafted audio presentation.
