Full marks to the suppliers for trying- we don't have nearly enough classic drama avaiable on Audible, but this is pretty old and more care should have been taken in the remastering- if it ever was remastered.
"Recording could be better"
I liked the story itself and having different voices perform each character. The worst part of this was the music is loud and over powers the speech sometimes, which makes listening difficult, the last 10 mins started giving me a headache. Also the voices sometimes dropped too low. Overall not bad, but could have been much better for what it is, a voice recording created specifically so one does not have to read the book. Also a narrator would have been nice explaining the movement of characters, etc, since this is a play but was not watching it.
I loved this story, and had never read it before! The performers were wonderful, but I couldn't here them all. :( For dramatic purposes, I'm assuming, there was often music while the chorus was speaking making it very difficult to here their vital input.
"Hard to hear"
yes it was because I had to read it for class and it helped me get it done quickly in one sitting.
Medea because she is interesting and raises a lot of questions about monstrosity and passion.
I don't think so. The volume of their voices changed way too often. Some points I couldn't even hear the chorus and then the next person would talk and it would be very loud. I had to adjust the volume often. also the music was unnecessary and also added hearing difficulty.
it inspired my statements of discussion for my class
I wish the stage directions would have been read as well. The narrators did a good job of changing their voices for the different people.
