Gelesen von Geoffrey Edwards

Laws (Greek: Νόμοι) is Plato's last and longest dialogue. It is generally agreed that Plato wrote this dialogue as an older man, having failed in his effort in Syracuse on the island of Sicily to guide a tyrant's rule, instead having been thrown in prison. (Summary by Wikipedia) (17 hr 12 min)

Great book!

(5 Sterne)

Appreciate all the hard work to preserve this audio treasure.

Actually didn't mind the robotic reading

(4 Sterne)

The reader might lack some style, but, let's consider the subject. There isn't very much room for artful delivery to begin with, and if it was over done, the book would be impossible to follow. I think better under played than overplayed in something like this. He consistently gives clear delivery, and although he doesn't do much to make dry material any less dry, he at least doesn't make it any more hard to digest. The only thing about his delivery at all was the way he said "and" every single time. (More of an "a-yund" that interrupts sentences.) I didn't mind his reading mostly, and the book is extremely interesting.

Well written book, you day the least.

several people have already commented on the mechanical nature of the recording and I found it to be a bit dry and annoying first but by book three, it became almost addictive. At times I wished for some emotion but then I figured that this type of reading leaves the interpretation up to the listener more than to the reader.

needs another reader

i respect Geoffrey for taking such a dutifulness to record such great texts. that being said I absolutely canNOT stand hearing his voice and delivery of words. He's so damn boring

text to speech would be better

(0,5 Sterne)

unable to comprehend more than three words, due to narrator going low every three words.

I tried but just couldn't

(0,5 Sterne)

the reader is so nasally and robotic that I couldn't be sure whether the voice was synthesized or not. I'm sorry but it's an ancient and obscure text to begin with. I did not get very far before I had to turn it off
