A Great Introduction to Shakespeare!

My mother introduced the Lamb's versions of Shakespeare's tales to me in written form, when I was in fourth grade. I read them voraciously, and continue to return to their work. This audio version is a great way to familiarize yourself, as well as your kids, with the classic works.

does not have all the stories

this version does not have all the stories in the book. I wish I knew that before I purchased it and wished I could return it. I have purchased the version with all the stories.

Not complete.

Loved the narration, however was disappointed to find this book only has 11 out of the 20 plays.
