This is a Perfect Performance

This is a perfect performance of thé sonnets. I’ve listened to others and didn’t like them. Again, this is perfection. I expect to listen to it again and again.

I like this narration.

There are many narrations of Shakespeare’s sonnets. I at last find the narration which I am comfortable with. It can also be said that Shakespeare’s sonnets can be enjoyed by many ways. Or each narration has its own uniqueness. Indeed, that’s why Shakespeare is great.
