Great retealing of Mcbeat with modern English

The Modern English version starts at "2h 34m 49s left" This you will need to know since both this one and Romeo and Juliet have a broken chapter selection, so you can't just jump there, and it can be a bit of a hassle to find it (Their other books are fine). However it's a great audio book if you want to listen to these famous classics with Modern English.

AUDIBLE- DO BETTER.

"TWO VERSIONS" are presented, but it is nearly impossible to FIND the modern translation version. Other than that, the story and performance is great. This version is not user friendly whatsoever.

Good Choice For MacBeth

Had to listen to for an assignment in school. It’s MacBeth, so there’s not much to be said here. Personally, I don’t really like the story all that much, but it is a classic. The performance was decent, at some points it seemed a little over dramatic. Overall pretty good.
