Publisher's Summary

Infamously known as the cursed Scottish play, Macbeth is perhaps Shakespeare's darkest tragedy. When General Macbeth is foretold by three witches that he will one day be King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth convinces him to get rid of anyone who could stand in his way - including committing regicide. As Macbeth ascends to the throne through bloody murder, he becomes a tyrant consumed by fear and paranoia.

Yanks lack the passion of performance.

Had I known this was an American performance of MacBeth. I wouldn't have purchased it. It just didn't sound great. And the cast lacked the passion needed for the Scottish play. Very disappointed. Stick to English if not Scottish versions.

Knock, knock, knock! Who's there?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's pretty good.


What other book might you compare Macbeth to, and why?

Other books by Shakespeare, because he wrote them also.


What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Mouthwords.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's a good psychological horror, with allot of atmosphere. It
brings forth feelings of excitement, and provokes thought.


Any additional comments?

Knock,
knock, knock! Who's there? Faith, here's an
English tailor come hither, for stealing out of
a French hose: come in, tailor; here you may
roast your goose.
