Great audio, great value

A friend who's a high school teacher introduced me to Dodgepoint's full audio Shakespeare series. She uses them in the classroom to enliven her sleepy teenagers. I listen to them for sheer pleasure.

The Merchant of Venice offers yet another great and easy-to-follow classic. The voices are full of life and subtlety. I put this series on when I'm in the car or making supper, and I inevitably notice my family members paying attention.

Highly recommended not just for the classroom, but also for the home.

Surprisingly good

I didn't expect much from this app when I bought it, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much it had. Are there more apps by these people? Because I would buy them.
