Publisher's Summary

Thomas More's "Utopia" is a complex, innovative and insightful contribution to the development of political thought. The culmination of this work was a description of a country whose society lives according to the laws of nature, but is close to the ideas of the religion of Christianity - they have everything in common and gold is not valuable to them. Based on the ideas of Plato, St. Augustine and Aristotle, the Utopia novel has borne fruit, namely the dawn of new utopian and anti-utopian literature that includes the writings of such writers as Francis Bacon, Herbert Wells, Aldous Huxley and George Ourell. Acutely criticizing a society built on a thirst for profit and at the same time reflecting on the personal cost of social activities, the Utopia novel demonstrates how difficult it is to balance pragmatism and idealism and, as usual, invites the reader to enter into an interesting debate about how to be a state.

Thomas more utopia

Worst narrator I have ever heard. Hard too imagine the selection of a narrator for an English classic stumbles through the pronunciation of the words

A cryptic dialogue by Sir Thomas More

This is a cryptic dialogue by Sir Thomas More against the in-humane practices of the governing leadership at the time. The perfect “UTOPIA” would follow the seven heavenly virtues: Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Temperance, and Prudence. But in reality, when humans are added the seven deadly sins” of Pride; Envy; Gluttony; Lust; Anger; Greed; and Sloth enter and infect the rulers of countries and humans. Experienced as an Audio book.

Just don't...

Awful.
I managed about half the first chapter. I was looking forward to listening to this as I'm very interested in Tudor history, but really? An important 16th Century text, written by a highly educated English man read by an American woman with the whiniest voice. No thanks.
