I am very disappointed with this audiobook. When I purchase an audiobook from Audible, I have come to expect professional quality recordings. The narrator slips over words, pauses, rereads words that were first stated incorrectly, and stumbles over main character names. If this audiobook were .99, I would understand, but at $5 for 45 minutes, I definitely expect a professional quality recording. Additionally, most of the 45 minutes of the recording is narrator commentary, which is not entirely correct or useful... I have never been so disappointed with an audiobook from Audible.

Bad, Bad, Bad!
The story the Allgory of the Cave is wonderful!! But the person reading is horrible. Mispronounced words, no ediiting and straight forward reading! You can tell when he is flipping pages and tries to pick up from where he left off. $2.94 is way too expensive for this.
Audble, I hope you take this off you list of books. It is really bad.

the problem with this audiobook was that the explanation of the allegory by the narrator was restricted to his views and was oversimplified; i understand that not everybody can easily see through a deep philosophic analysis but with a cheap substitute the text itself loses the meaning. It would be much better without any introduction but then the price would not be justified.
The translation was very good(I have read the ancient text my self).
