From School Library Journal
“Grade 5-8-Skillfully read by Claire Higgins, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet will hold listeners spellbound as they become involved in the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues and in Romeo and Juliet’s plight of love. Higgins’ reading is quite natural, and her voice is extremely pleasant to follow. The tape contains a plot summary, an introduction to Shakespeare by Leon Garfield, in addition to supplementary information regarding Shakespeare and his writings from Dr. Rex Gibson, all read by Simon Russell Beale. This extra information is extremely rewarding and will raise the listener’s understanding of Shakespeare and why he has been significant in literature. Peter Hutchins organized the span background music. The technical qualities are all exceptional, and the teaching objectives are satisfied. This program is suitable for individual or group listening, along with the additional information will offer a superb springboard for debate. An excellent acquisition for both school and public libraries with audio collections.”
