Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-Naxos AudioBooks' top-drawer Classic Drama Series blissfully continues with this exquisite rendition of Othello starring Hugh Quarshie, Anton Lesser, Emma Fielding, and a full cast of professional English actors with extensive credits in the Royal National Theatre, BBC Radio Drama Company, and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Shakespeare's most domestic tragedy is an exceedingly complex journey through jealousy, self-doubt, inadequacies, and societal acceptance. Passed over for military promotion, Iago, perhaps Shakespeare's most nefarious character, manipulates Othello's downfall, culminating in the murder of his beloved wife, Desdemona, and Othello's subsequent suicide. Under David Timson's stewardship as director, the story is beautifully and simply told, embellished only with intermittent brassy flourishes of classical music and a dramatic echo effect and throbbing heart beat to underscore Othello's chaotic descent and rage. While the entire cast is excellent, the trio of Quarshie (Othello), Lesser (Iago), and Fielding (Desdemona) are outstanding. An outline of each individual cassette, complete synopsis, full notes regarding the text, and cast biographies are included in a compact 24-page supplemental booklet. For all collections.-Barry X.

There seems to be something wrong with Act IV in this version and it will not open on my Nook or on my PC... Either way I would go with a different version.

It works. Its a book. But there were so many typos and random numbers everywhere, it was annoying to read. But for desperate students, its cheaper than buying the book.

Actually the Pact Clans are just following the warrior code when they let abandoned kits join.

Without a moment of pause, she replied with a annoyed tone. "You must think I am foolish. First off, why am I even talking to you? You not a deputy nor a leader. Second off, I'm not going to just rattle off all my plans to you when the whole world is watching, we have never met, the whole idea is riding on a maybe, and you not a deputy or a leader. Good bye. Ferns, Poisenclaw, come back home with me please." She said with a nod and walked out.
