Great (albeit limited) selection of speeches. Perfect for an enjoyable listen when you can't spend the time to enjoy entire plays. Short introductions set the scene. It definitely benefits the listener to be somewhat familiar with the plays. The speeches from plays I knew better (Macbeth, Hamlet, Henry V) were much more enjoyable than those from lesser-known(to me) plays.Love it.
Performances range in quality, as you would expect, but there's something for you here, however you like your Shakespeare. Appreciated some lesser-known selections like the one from Kinsmen, along with (very) familiar ones.
I would happily recite the whole book :)
A good book; however, it would've been nice to have a wider range of soliloquies! Still, this book was a fun and short read!
