Readers are mechanical, reflect no sense of the poetry
The readers of the sonnets in this compilation are uniformly awful. They ignore punctuation, pause when they shouldn't, mispronounce words ('doth'), rush through the poetry as if they were on a deadline, and reflect no understanding of the text at all. The readings destroy the beauty, meaning and complexity of Shakespeare's words. While it is a great idea to compile a recording of all the sonnets, one must give them their due by hiring readers who, at minimum, understand and respect Shakespeare's texts.
