We read these for our homeschool program. It is great for the kids to be able to listen to them as well.
Well read and includes all 20 of the stories from the Lamb's book.

Especially good for kids
Just so you can understand, this book re-tells Shakespeare's plays with a few direct quotes in a story format. We read this book for homeschool and I downloaded the audio so we can listen to the stories again. It's a great way to introduce kids to Shakespeare because they can follow the complicated plots more easily and really get a handle on what's going on. They're not too long so they don't get bored though sometimes I have to stop and review who's who and what's going on. My nine year old adhd son likes to act out these stories and remembers them too. He also understands references adults sometimes make to Shakespeare. (They will help adults to understand Shakespeare better too.)

Essentially, Synopses of the Plays
With each tale, one listens and learns that this happened, and then that happened, etc. Occasionally, dialogue from the plays are inserted, but not much. I just found it hard to get into this. I forced myself to finish because a knowledge of Shakespeare's plays is a good thing. Ideally, though, one wants to listen for no other reason than enjoyment. That wasn't the case for me.
I found the Stories from Shakespeare series much more entertaining.
Too much for your money!
The content is good, the problem I find is it impossible to navigate. I've ended up with a huge file that I need to take pot luck with when I need to find a particular item.
My advice is to buy the seperate items and make life a great deal easier for yourself.
