Go Ahead and Buy Macbeth

I’m talking to myself, but then A.J. Hartley has us all in a stir with his news this evening, and I had to purchase his Macbeth. I bought the audio book as well. It’s performed by Alan Cumming, and so far it sounds great. I have high hopes of it being worth it to the end. As for Alan, in short he is interesting. Go here if you want to check him out.

514SOJylF9L._SL500_AA300_PIaudible,BottomRight,13,73_AA300_I hate to admit it, but my first thought of him was as the bad guy in Spy Kids. That tells you where my head’s been the last 15 years. I’m going to forget all of that this evening and listen to an adaptation of my favorite Shakespearean play, and a role I long to to see Richard Armitage perform on stage at some point.

Oh, and if you own a Kindle, in the U.S. you can borrow the book and add on the Audible version via Whisper Sync for only $4.99. Not a bad deal.

Okay, I bought this too while I was at it.

Back to listening.


  1. All I can say to this is: Alan Cumming is amazing and I highly recommend this audiobook as well as his many other works – acting, writing, directing and even in the world of perfume.

    Unfortunately I’m sounding pretty redundant when it comes to Alan, so I’ll stop here and let you discover him for yourself :)

  2. Something in Cumming’s look always reminds me of Peewee Herman. ewww. He played sleeze so well in “Circle Of Friends”. ewww X infinity.

  3. I’m hooked on this audiobook right now. I recommend it. That it was written to be read aloud makes a difference I think. So far, so good. Better than good.

  4. MM, I’m wondering if you listened to the Macbeth by Hartley and Hewson, or the dramatization of the original play. I initially put up the graphic for the dramatization of the play and have now changed it to the Hartley/Hewson book. Just wondering.

    Kitty, LOL! He has played some sleaze bags.

    Perry, It is a good one. I’m going to listen to the Shakespeare dramatization by Cumming when I’m done with the Hartley/Hewson book.
