What did you like best about Nicomachean Ethics? What did you like least?
I occasionally enjoyed Aristotle's winding progression of ideas. However, many of his arguments seemed to rest on shaky foundations, such as "it's what people generally think, so it must be true." His presentation of his arguments was also very dry.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Aristotle's Politics (partially because I have to read it for class)
What three words best describe Michael Prichard’s voice?
Monotonous, Steady, Suitable
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Goodness, no. It would never work as a movie.
Any additional comments?
I enjoy Plato as a Greek political philosopher much more. The Republic is infinitely more entertaining and intriguing. Aristotle is important too, though - especially his discussion of virtue as moderation.

A grammatic, historic and philosophic oasis and home coming.
So, audible makes you submit a minimum number of words for a review...
To be honest, this book is not a kind of book that someone can read it to you. I took Nichomacean Ethics as one of my PhilText courses and I bought the audiobook as well as the book itself. But Aristotle's arguments are sophisticated enough that are difficult to understand even after spending some quality time on them. So the audio version is probably good for those who have already mastered the arguments in the book and are trying to have it in their mind for teaching purposes or some such.
