"Each story is voiced by one or several narrators who match the gender expression of the main protagonist, giving the audiobook a robust collection of distinct performances. Every tragedy, romance, and comedy is narrated with the ideal amount of enthusiasm, high energy, or relaxed pacing and allows listeners to savor each shortened interpretation. A delightful listen for Shakespeare fans looking for a more contemporary approach." -- AudioFile Magazine
