This audio book is a fantastic work of art. The play is well spoken and very well acted.When listening to it one feels as if sitting in a theatre. The play comes alive in front of your inner eye, you forget where you are and what you do. You'll be thrilled!

(This is a review of the 3 CD set which cost me £12.78. Some sets on here seem far more expensive),
I like Shakespeare, but it was actually seeing Richard III's cortege in my home city recently that prompted me to get this.
Very good performance, Kenneth Brannigan plays a totally convincing Richard III and the entire cast is fine.

Excellent clear sound and the music (mostly from Janacek's "Taras Bulba") works very well with it. I only wish that I hadn't initially wasted money on the iPod version because the CD sound quality is so much better. Through headphones using a personal CD player the sound is superior to that delivered by my iPad using the same audiophile headphones. (It was because I wasn't happy with the download that I then bought the CD). Through my hi-fi speakers the CD sound is superb. Also, I'm one of those old-fashioned types who generally prefer a shiny disc to a download. Good documentation too.

If studying this novel the CD works brilliantly alongside it, you can hear HOW the lines would be delivered and get a better overall effect of the play! Def worth it

An excellent performance given here. Worth buying, as many of the speeches sound new & fresh no matter how many times you hear them. Highly recommended.

This edition of Richard III (with notes by Richard Adams) is probably the finest around. Despite being edited 30 years it has all the hallmarks of meticulous scholarship. Adams evidently has a background in History. He brings this elegantly to the fore throughout the play, enhancing our understanding not only of the text but of the Historical Background. A brand new edition of this needs to be published. Much thanks, Mr Adams, it was a labour of love reading your every sentence!
