Not all of the stories
There are only 8 stories from Tales from Shakespeare in this audio version. The narrators do a good job of presenting the stories, however, I was disappointed to find many are not included. The chapters are not labeled by story so here they are in order:
1. King Lear
2. Midsummer Night's Dream
4. Romeo and Juliet
5. The Tempest
6. Measure for Measure
8. Twelfth Night

not very helpful
this book was not very helpful because the stories are out of order and there were only 8 out of 20 stories as well as the narrator skipping whole sections of the paragraphs, I was very confused when I started the book because it started with "King Lear" instead of "The Tempest"😡😐😑

Could be helped by labelling the chapters with the titles of the plays instead of numbers 1-8, to navigate to King Lear or the Tempest or whatever. This comment of course holds true for all Audible chapters - hopeless lack of adequate detail.
