This is not the Communist Manifesto

If I wanted a capitalist commenting on Marxs I would have looked for that in the title. waste of my money!

75% Marx, 25% implying he is wrong

What did you like best about The Communist Manifesto? What did you like least?

It is a pretty powerful book, but that power is undercut by the hour long (a literal quarter of the audiobook) explanation of why Communism does not work. I'm fine with that, but put it after the book when I actually have time to form my own opinion about the arguments. I would be fine with it if they actually advertised that there would be that much commentary.

What didn’t you like about Joe Geoffrey’s performance?

The performance was WAY to quiet. I had to turn any speaker all the way up and mute any other noise to make out the sound.

Too much for me.....

This was simply too much for me, I managed ½ of it.... I think they are going for the record for saying "bourgeoisie"
Boring.

Not what it seems

This is not the writings of Marx and Engels. It's an editorialised digest of their work, with much explained more through the opinion of whoever the author is.
