Gelesen von Elin

(4,667 Sterne; 18 Bewertungen)

Peter Kropotkin was a Russian anarcho-communist and scientist. This is his autobiography, and he writes not only about his own life, but also about 19th century Russian society and politics. He was born into the nobility and had a military education, but he gradually abandoned the values of his social class and became an anti-authoritarian socialist, opposed to both the rule of the Tsars and to the seizing of power by the authoritarian Bolsheviks. He was also interested in literature, biology, economics and geographical exploration. This first volume of his memoirs covers his childhood, his education, and the time he spent in Siberia.(Introduction by Elin) (7 hr 31 min)

Excellent book

(4 Sterne)

I've listened to this book many times to savor the nuances of the author's coming of age and convictions. My only issues are the annoyingly long pauses and introductions at the beginning of each chapter and the narrator's mispronounciations. I think it is important for the narrator to have a full grasp of the language the book is being translated into. Also, the narrator starts each sentence of with a strong voice, then ends in barely a whisper. Though the narrator is the same in volume 2, the introductions are gone. I would encourage you to continue and download the second volume if you enjoyed the first.

And now onto Volume Two

(5 Sterne)

This is a most fascinating book to which to listen. I am looking forward to hearing Volume Two. The reader is wonderful. Thank-you for taking the time to undertake such a venture!
