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)

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.

Great book!

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

interesting, but...

If I was giving a review for only the content of the writing, it would certainly get five stars, as this, like all Socratic dialogues, is an important piece of ancient history. Unfortunately, this is an audiobook review, and thusly it is focused not on the content of the text, but on the skill of the reader. While it is true that every word is pronounced clearly, they are also pronounced as if the objective is to bore the listener to sleep as quickly as possible. In particular, the reader pauses for an aggravating amount of time whenever an instance of the word "and" appears. However, the reader is still intelligible, which is more than can be said, sadly, for a good 10% of the volunteers on LibriVox. For this reason, I will be giving two stars, rather than one.

text to speech would be better

(0,5 Sterne)

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

Well written book, you day the least.

Read by a Robot?

Narrator voice is incredibly annoying and disorienting.

narrators voice is not for this genre
