    Misleading

    I was looking for monologues for an audition I was preparing for. I purchased this book thinking it would acutually have the entire scene it does not, it just tells you about the piece and where in the play to find it. You pay 10.00 for this book and still have to go out and purchase additional books. Very disapointing.
