This was a delight, (as much as that is possible for Schopenhauer.) There are wide gaps between philosophers, but Durant does such a good job of distilling the lives and thoughts of the ones he includes that it is a very worthwhile listen. The navel gazers come alive as men and Durant includes an abstract of the man's philosophy and then a section of criticism. I found it a very good introduction to the study of Western thought. Also, I'm glad that my opinion of Aristotle is not unique to me.
This series is riveting. I listened to Hunger Games and couldn't wait to dive into Catching Fire. However, I found that this narrator didn't present the text in a convincing way and sometimes found her distracting. So I consumed the rest of the series the old fashioned way,...on my Kindle :)
