Summary

Initially banned in France by King Louis, Molière's celebrated social satire Tartuffe exposes false piety and hypocrisy in the Catholic Church. When a pious fraud worms his way into a wealthy family and manipulates the patriarch into giving up his fortune, it’s up to his family to expose the truth before they end up in the poorhouse!

Great!

So, I was assigned to read this book as a social studies assignment since I was going to have a upcoming test on it. I was too lazy to read so I decided to take the easy way out, hear the audiobook version. Overall, I was glad this was assigned to me since in the end, I really ended up loving it. At first, it's good but not the best since it's a bit hard memorising who is who. But eventually, you start to realize that this story is amazing. I recommend it even if you hate plays/ dramas. Tartuffe 9/10

Required Reading

Had to read this for a class. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. The voices did good and helped me to understand it better. Their inflection and energy really added to the story.

a French classic lives again! Beautifully acted.

I enjoyed this production immensely. Well worth a second - a third hearing. Features the dangers of tittle-tattle in clever poetry. Funny and edifying.

Wonderful!

Any additional comments?

Who knew that a play written in the late 1600's would be so pertinent for today, and entertaining!
My son & I listened thru this together for a English high school course he is doing - so pleased they included this title!!

Class Assignment.

I enjoy good satire, and found Tartuffe to be a deliciously sarcastic treatment of religious hypocrisy.
