    The Dialogues of Plato rank with the writings of Aristotle as the most important and influential philosophical works in Western thought. In them Plato cast his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantly probe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I liked the performance, and the dialogues. The dialogues did not start at the beginning of the chapter segments, so you cannot just skip to the particulars you wanted to hear; this was very disappointing! Change the recording format and you have a success.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This audio book thouroughly enhances the scenes created for us by Plato!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The Symposium was definitely the best. It was quite compelling to hear the dialogue read.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Cowley – was your favorite?

    They were all read equally well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh when the discussion of drinking was being performed in the Symposium.
