Abridged, but enjoyable
This is an abridged performance. An entire (short) scene is missing, as are lines and portions of lines were cut throughout the play. You still get the gist of the story. If you are listening for for pleasure, it is a perfect choice. All in all, a very well-acted audiobook, and very reasonably priced.
Terrific performance, clearly spoken and unabridged
This is a terrific version of the Merchant of Venice. All the players enunciate their words clearly and there are no over-the-top performances to distract.
Since a reviewer elsewhere claimed that this was an abridgement, I checked it line-by-line against my RSC copy. Those notorious 72 lines from Act 3 Scene 5 have been excised, but otherwise it is complete and unabridged. For under $4, it is hard to see what could be better.
This is such a great version of the play.The actors speak clearly and the play is done very well.This, however, is an abridged version of the play,but you're not really missing any key parts of the play. Only a few lines are skipped and one insignificant scene I think if I can recall correctly,but like I said,its hardly anything.I highly recommend this, especially since its done so well and available at a cheap price
