The sonnet is one among the many forms of poetry. It is a difficult form of verse with a FIXED rhyme scheme. The other trivia about writing it is that the verse should be 14 lines long. 154 sonnets written by Shakespeare have been read/recorded in this collection. There are actually two cd's in the box - the first cd contains sonnets 1 through 75 and the second, sonnets 76 through 154. The accompanying book of sonnets is a plus - it saves our time spent in scurrying to locate the sonnet being read next, since all the sonnets are in one place, in the order that they are being read. The book also has two indexes of the sonnets: 1. Track number / First line of sonnet/ Artist and 2. First line of sonnet / Track number / Artist

Since the rhyming scheme is fixed (abab bcbd cdcd ee), listening to them all at a time can sometimes make it sound monotonous, but that issue has been fixed in this audio book, by varying the tone, voice, and reader. When it comes to reading The Bard's works on an audio CD, who can do it better than experienced and well known thespians and theatre personalities who have made a mark in their own style? Here is the list of personalities who have read the sonnets for us:

1. Gerry Bammon

2. Roberta Bella

3. Claire Bloom

4. Lindsay Crouse

5. Ossie Davis

6. Ruby Dee

7. Brian Dennehy

8. Denise Dumont

9. Jill Gascoin

10. Amy Irving

11. Anne Jackson

12. Jordan Lage

13. Brian Stokes Mitchell

14. Alfred Molina

15. Al Pacino

16. Natasha Richardson

17. Patric Stewart

18. Allyson Tucker
