Just a synopsis

I guess I should have noticed, but this is not a reading of the play or even cuttings. It is a synopsis (Plot summary) with a few quotes. The summary is OK, but don't look here for drama. If you are unfamiliar with the play and intimidated by the language, this might be a good way to hear what's going on so it is easier to read or see the real play.

Not a complete reading

I bought this for my son because he needs it for his 9th grade English class. Unfortunately I did not look at the length but looked that is was unabridged. I thougth it was the full edition of the book but is was not. It only has 15 minutes of portions of the book. DO NOT BUY if you are expecting a full edition.

Very robotic

Not delivered as a play, but as a story. The narrator is too robotic sounding. It was so annoying we couldn't finish even half.
