Sound Quality is the only drawback

The sound quality of this production made me imagine someone propping a microphone in front of a television showing Romeo & Juliet being performed. It's tinny-sounding, and there are background sounds of birds, wind, feet scuffling, etc, which dilute and diminish the voices to a small degree. It's not unbearable, just a bit distracting.
On the positive side, the actors are very good. Listening to this play was different from reading it on paper, or seeing it performed live... I caught different strands of relationship between the characters. The Nurse, played by Fiona Shaw, was especially brilliant.

Great Language

Romeo and Juliet is one of my favorite Shakespearean works. The language is so beautiful and the voices bring out the wonderfulness of the book. The full cast is the best way to listen to a book on tape. They even have celebrity readers (Kate Beckinsale: Pearl Harbor, Serendipity). If you like Shakespeare, romance, or tragedy than this is a great choice. If not, this is still worthwhile just for the beautiful language.

MICHAEL SHEEN FREAKING ROCKS!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Romeo and Juliet to be better than the print version?

WITHOUT DOUBT, THIS RENDITION OF R+J WAS THE BEST I HAVE EVERY EXPERIENCED! I majored in theatre and so I have seen more than my fair share of Shakespeare interpretations. This audiobook version has revived my passion for this play and I no have a renewed sense of interest in the performers. I am anxious to see what they produce next!!!

Any additional comments?

MORE MICHAEL SHEEN, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

Better than school

I have to teach this play in a continuation high school and the combination of excellent sound effects and superbly spoken text make this audiobook an ideal vehicle to bring the play to the students.

Good for classroom use

I use this audio to allow students to follow the story while still using their imagination. However, the kiss is so cheesy that we had to stop the tape and let the class laugh for a long time. A year later, they still chuckle over that kiss.

Great for classroom use

Any additional comments?

I bought this book for my students' use. As we listened the sound effects and emotional readings allowed everyone to understand just what was going on. My 9th grade students have a particularly difficult time understanding Shakespearean English and anything that can help is a great treasure to my teaching arsenal.

Romeo & Juliet

Where does Romeo and Juliet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As for this recording, it's professional, for sure. The actors go a bit too fast (which tends to suck the meaning and sencerity out) so if I listen to it again I'll slow it down so I can get more out of the words. I'm glad for these recordings. I'd never be able to do all the reading I want if I had to actually only read these long ones. Thanks Audible!!

What did you like best about this story?

Well, who doesn't like Shakespeare? But some story lines are meatier than others. This one starts out as a comedy and ends up quite the opposite. Ends as a cautionary tale. Parents beware! You got plans for your kids? Hopes are good, but concrete plans that your kid will do this, or that, when they grow up... Well, look out!

Aufforderung zum Tanz

Es gibt Leute, die behaupten der eigentliche Star dieses Stücks sei der Balkon, auf den Julia steht, während Romeo sie von unten anhimmelt. Doch haben so viele Feinheiten aus Romeo und Julia Spuren in der Literatur auf den Bühnen hinterlassen, daß es nicht einem Architekten zu verdanken ist, daß Shakespeare uns eine Geschichte hinterlassen hat, deren Grundzüge jeder kennt, Theatergänger verklärte Augen bekommen, wenn der Name Romeo oder Julia fällt. Die Liebe, immer wieder die Liebe. Unerschütterlich bis in den Tod, und doch verraten, ohne Happy End. Shakespeare war ein großer Autor. Er findet uns nicht mit einem glücklichen Ende ab. Inmitten von all den Capulets und Montagues kann es das auch nicht geben. Shakespeare zeichnet nicht nur eine Liebesgeschichte. Er zeigt auch die Auswirkung von Haß und Gewalt. Er beschreitet die Wege des Verrats und Mißtrauens und fängt mit seiner Geschichte gleichsam wie in einem Netz, das menschliche Scheitern ein. Wer will nicht an die Liebe glauben, stehe auch die ganze Welt gegen sie? Wer sie nicht verteidigen? Wer nicht mit ihr untergehen? Und so wird die Geschichte von Romeo und Julia Bestand haben, solange es Menschen gibt.
