NOT unabridged

This has 10 of the 20 stories from the book. They are very well done, but I was frustrated to get only half of a book when it is supposed to be unabridged.

Not so much for children ...

but still a great introduction to Shakespeare. The narration can be ever-so slightly monotonous, but is well-done, nonetheless. What I enjoy about these tales is that they are brief (think "short story") and I can refresh my memory of the main plot and main characters of the play in 30 minutes or so.
