This drama is a retelling of Shakespeare's most famous tragedy, made accessible to younger listeners but still true to the Bard's original style and vocabulary.

On a dark heath, Macbeth stumbles across three witches who can see into the future. What he hears will change everything. Encouraged by his wife, he decides to kill in order to gain the Scottish crown.

How many people will die in his pursuit of power? With armies, ghosts and magic against him, will Macbeth survive in this tale of greed and betrayal? Getting the crown is one thing - keeping it is quite another.

    " This is my favorite Shakespeare play. It's not technically as good as the big ones like Hamlet, but there's something about the dark bloody atmosphere that pulls me in. Witches, murder, madness, plus...Scottish people. Good stuff. "

    " I personally think it is kind of a weird book, people that may like role play books may like it but it is not one of my favorites. "

    " Tragic and fascinating at the same time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rua Brithem | 1/5/2014

    " So much more than 'just a play'. Macbeth is a fascinating insight into the drive to succeed and the cost it takes on one's soul. I'm looking at you, Lady McB. "

    " Reading Shakespeare is deliciously painful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giselle | 12/28/2013

    " Ahhh my introduction to Shakespeare in high-school. I was so into this tragedy & lady macbeth's strength of ill will; I wrote a review that made my cute teacher laugh, thanks to Shakespeare my experience through Macbeth was pleasantly memorable, who would have thunk it? :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 11/29/2013

    " When I was in high school, I played "Lennox" in a community theater production of this. "

    " Macbeth is a nice book too! LADY MACBETH FROM THE MOVIE CREEPS ME OUT SO MUCH. THE WITCHES IN THE MOVIE ARE ALSO SO CREEPY AND SCARY OH MY GOSH LIKE SERIOUSLY. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry Landry | 4/9/2013

    " The Scottish play! After hundreds of years of performances and readings, I doubt there is little that I could add in a review. It is classic Shakespeare in terms of plot, language, and characterization. Definitely one of the best and a must-read for everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amirah | 3/25/2013

    " I had to study the book for my GCE O literature exam. My Lit teacher made the story come alive. I enjoyed the play tremendously and who can forget the witches scene at the beginning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandria | 2/9/2013

    " Macbeth and the emphasis on fate. The Weird Sisters with their prophesies, the protagonist' inability to believe, the sudden necessity of believing when it is far too late. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 I am Dangerous | 1/7/2013

    " It wasn't so intresting as the other books of shakespare. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abigail Vaerten | 12/20/2012

    " I'm not the biggest fan of Shakespeare so it wasn't my favorite story I've ever read, but it still wasn't bad. I read it in school and my class had a fun time reading it, but it just wasn't really my type of story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Machen | 10/26/2012

    " My favourite Shakespeare play, my copy is heavily annotated and shabby but I love the language, and the supernatural themes alongside the ambitiously crazy Lady Macbeth. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
