I am a big fan of the Stoics, and this
little audio file captures the spirit
of their philosophy. The audio file does
a good job of bringing the stoic tradition
into the 21st century, and making it meaningful
to a listener in 2008.
Bravo! I would like to see similiar treatments
on Seneca-Marcus Aurelieus (sp?)-and Cicero.
A great Read!
A triple play...
My favorite author
My favorite narrator
My favorite character returns!
Joe, start writing faster!
I was a HUGE fan of this series in print when I as a youngster....
I was overjoyed to see it finally available in Audio!!
The story remains as great as ever. (just go with it past the grisly start of
The Audible narator is servicable, but I had hopes for something slightly
more "rough-edged" to portray the "Hunter" Character.
Still a great buy that you will not be disappointed with!
The writing was good, but the ending was quick and rather rude.
Many of the side plots, his kid, his ex-wife, the friends kid were left
Without any sort of conclusion.
I agree with the other posts...
Go back to the narrator from the original 3 audio books for all future releases!
Humor generally does not do well across the ages,
and this book is a perfect example.
It does have some good fun poking dark humor at
the Catholic church and the Jesuits in paticular.
It also has some funny 'Pythonesque" moments in
revolt against the right of Kings.
Over all though, much of the humor falls flat,
and it was a struggle to finish.
I am a fan of Seneca,
and have read most of his works.
This collection of sayings was not done
all that well.
The female voice is difficult to understand
The audio file is worth listening to.
It will give you a sense of Senaca's thoughts,
but I had higher hopes for it.
