This is an excellent book to listen to. The main story is highly engaging and the book is full of interesting side stories. The narration is well done. The translation, however, is old-fashioned (plenty of 'thee's and thou's).
This engaging adventure story tells of Xenophon's return from Mesopotamia with his Greek mercenaries. The narrator gives an excellent performance.
The translation is archaic ('thee/thou'). It's not funny. Comedy should be translated into contemporary English. I couldn't bear to listen to much of it. Aristophanes deserves much better.
