    How remarkable that an Italian living in the 15th and 16th centuries should lend his name to a word still in common usage in the English language today. Nicolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) wrote only one major work as a gift for his ruling Prince, Lorenzo de Medici. Machiavelli held office as a senior civil servant for 14 years until the downfall of the Republic in 1512. No longer officially employed to impart advice, instead Machiavelli poured out his ideas and resentment in his writings.

    "great classic but reading too pompous"
    Overall

    It's a pity this wonderful classic is read in a style which is too pompous and afected to be plesant.

    Raskolnikov, a student in St. Petersburg, murders an old woman, a money-lender, to prove his theory that violence purifies the strong. But no sooner is the deed done than Raskolnikov begins to feel remorse. What follows is one of the greatest psychological studies in world literature.

    Glenn says: "Great Book"
    "Crime and Punishment"
    Overall

    Great book, but the reading sounds like it is computer generated, with no emotion and a monotony which makes it unpleasant to listen to.
