👍🏻

This was wonderfully done and well delivered. The narration pace bothered me. I sped it up and it was much better. The narrator did a great job. Even if it was a bit slow.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

Interesting Insight into Plato's Mind

Where does The Apology of Socrates: Adapted for the Contemporary Reader rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

For this type of thing, this ranks very highly for me. It's a quick listen at under an hour and I actually sped it up a bit too. It's cool to get a snapshot of someone's mindset so long ago directly from them, and the nuggets of wisdom within make this a highly recommended book.

What about Michael T Downey’s performance did you like?

The narrator is very clear - which is why I could speed it up and it was fine.

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
