Great audio book in German

What did you love best about Homo Faber?

I like how Homo Faber does not hold anything back when he talks about what he is thinking. Sometimes I think what he thinks is a little inappropriate, but it gives a good insight into the human condition.

What did you like best about this story?

Greek. Tragedy.

Any additional comments?

I use this audio book as a companion to reading the eBook. I read as the reader reads out loud. It helps me with my German and I get to hear a great story -- read by a native speaker -- at the same time.

Wonderful book, wonderful performance

I have to say that I have really enjoyed listening to this book. It is also a great book if you are learning German as its language it’s quite straightforward. It is a fascinating story.

to understand the sense of life

If you could sum up Homo Faber in three words, what would they be?

don't rely on coincidence, decide in time what do you really want (or desire)

Any additional comments?

this novel gives a stimulus to contemplation for people with sufficient life experience,
it is quite unfit as recommended school reading

Klassiker perfekt gelesen

Ich kannte den rational denkenden Ingenieur Homo Faber bisher nur vom hören sagen. Jetzt kenne ich auch seine Geschichte und bin sehr froh darüber. Max Frisch erzählt aus Faber's Perspektive, wie er die ihm oft unverständliche Welt und das aus seiner Sicht irrationale Verhalten anderer Menschen sieht.
Felix von Manteuffel ist ein genialer Sprecher den ich bereits aus anderen Hörbüchern kenne und der mich immer wieder begeistert und für Homo Faber perfekt geeignet ist.
