Publisher's Summary

Common Sense is a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine in 1775 advocating independence from the United Kingdom to people in the 13 colonies. It was the most notable piece of literature at the time of its publication and remains an important part of history for the United States.

Listen to this wonderful narration of Common Sense by Jeff Moon and you'll see why this is arguably one of the most notable pieces advocating for the United States' independence from Great Britain.

    Story
    "Another classic served well by audible"

    This is another work which I read way back when which comes to life via audible narration. Paine's argument begins with more general, theoretical reflections about government and religion, then progresses onto the specifics of the colonial society. Society, according to Paine, is everything constructive and good that people join together to accomplish. Government, on the other hand, is an institution whose sole purpose is to protect us from our own vices. The appealing thing of Paine's intellectual writing is that he makes his argument in wording understandable to the common man in hopes of winning them over to the cause. A truly enlightening work from one of the great minds of the 1700s whose ideas are still relative to this day.

    I would highly recommend this audible version to anyone that enjoys history and the thinking that shaped our nation. The narration is superb and really brings life to the work.

    A review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.
