Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely. I had thought the Smith had anticipated much of our current understanding of the way markets function. Instead, he had all of the fundamentals figured out. I was fearing that it would be quite obscure in topic and language, but found it pleasantly accessible, if perhaps a bit long.
As as reading the classics, I would definitely recommend this.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?
It fit the material.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Really enjoyed this book and pretty much every sentence is interesting but it can be heavy and draining.
Also, seriously, brush up on how much guineas and shillings are worth otherwise a lot of the analogies will be lost. I got very confused when he starts comparing how many guineas are paid per bushel of wheat compared to how many florins per hogs head of ale.

So many concepts that underpin capitalist ideology, like the invisible hand, first advanced by Smith here. Indispensable reading. Narration could have been better though, put me to sleep sometimes.
