This sounds like a robotic reading of Cliff Notes

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The only people interested would be students too lazy to read the play, or even listen to the whole thing.

Would you recommend Hamlet to your friends? Why or why not?

Absolutely not. I suspect this is a robotic reading, as the pronunciations of the names were very artificial. Audible should be ashamed of selling such a shoddy product.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

robotic mispronounciations

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Awful.

Any additional comments?

how do I get a refund for this rip off?
