Reviews

great narrator

(5 stars)

it's unfortunate that so many people don't like the narrator. I found his tone to be helpful because the drops made it clear when a sentence or statement is coming to a close. I think it's an intelligent and thoughtful style of reading. I would suggest that those with bunchy panties about his voice narrate this themselves, and upload it for free since undoubtedly they can make a free recording of Aristotle's works better than this narrator.

I think the hearing would be easier if one would "imagine" t

Many of the librivox readers are international. It would probably be easier for the listener to "imagine" they are listening to the "accent" of the writer by proxy. Speech patterns such as inflections etc. are easily overlooked when you realize that the speaker may be of the same langauge/dialect of the writer, for example, the reader may be Greek. This scenario gives the reading a "dramatized flavor" for an otherwise dry although enjoyable subject. I can only thank the readers/volunteers who take their precious time to give of themselves. Thank you Librivox Readers. Charity

The book is probably great...but i was only able to get 2 min and 18 sec in due to the narrator. I thought, after reading the reviews, that i wouldn't be that shallow...but dude...no offence...but dangggg lol

(2 stars)

this reader drops his tone at the end of phrases. it gets very anoying... its to bad because it is distracting. the reader should read it fluently as if speaking.

problem with chap 1 and 4

(1 stars)

after a few seconds in chap 1 it jumps to chap 4, and after a few more seconds to chap 8. frustrating!

how many periods does one sentence need?

(0.5 stars)

this difficult text is made a hundred times worse with the reading style.

(5 stars)

I don't know why anyone complains about the narrator, I seem out his recordings.

I'm sure he's a nice guy but he shouldn't narrate ever again
