This audio books gives a great start to Shakespear
This book is a kind of a teaser. The fact to be appreciated about the book is that it summarizes the classics to the best possible extent. One can recap the stories they already know or can get a short summary before deciding to dive into the actual complete versions.
However, this is not a complete collection of Shakespear tales. For example, the title of Julius Ceaser is missing from this collection.
Overall, this is a fine audiobook and well narrated.
