    The Trial and the Death of Socrates remains a powerful document not least because it gives a first-hand account of the end of one of the greatest figures in history.

    In Apology, Socrates defends himself before the Athenian court against charges of corrupting youth. Phaedo is the account by a young man of the actual last words and moments of Socrates.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. It is true to the good translations.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its a classic must read for those who wish to have a proper education.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure


    Did The Trial and the Death of Socrates inspire you to do anything?

    It is rather dense. Inspire me to listen along as I read from the text.


    Any additional comments?

    The music between sections/chapters is Horrid! It really kills the mood of the reading with its shrill teeth grinding tones. Buy the book but put up with the music. Wish there was a way to skip the music.
