(P)2001 Blackstone Audiobooks
Nadia May's clear and fetching voice brings us this most ancient, complete and instructive of works, by the old master himself. The translation is equally lucid. As for a review of Aristotle's writing, I shall refrain, as it is an experience indescribable. Do not skip this one!
"Aristotle on audiobook?"
This in many ways an excellent audio book, but I would hesitate to recommend it wholeheartedly. Nadia May reads, as usual, clearly and intelligently and this version is much to be preferred to the mechanical monotone of the other audiobook version of this work. By listening to this recording it is possible to get an overview of one of the most fundamental works of moral philosophy.My hesitation comes from the difficulty of following the intricacies of some of Aristotle's arguments while listening. This is one of those books where an audio book is greatly inferior to reading and rereading the text slowly.
"Hardcore only - audiobooks come into their own"
Read the book, got the t-shirt, but starting to forget what it was actually all about....a great way to dip back into all that heavy-duty stuff that was based on afternoons at the library in the days before Wikipedia.
Despite other reviews, this is easy to follow - albeit in the bite-size chunks and commuting and listening on the go dictates. But then, this is a modern world, isn't it....?
