Rich formal text
What made the experience of listening to On the Shortness of Life: Stoic Principles for Self-Improvement the most enjoyable?
The nice baritone vocal was very engaging. There was an appropriate inflection in the voice that kept you engaged.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the more formal English and references to subjects not heard of today. The wording was such that you had to pay attention and listen to understand the content.
Which scene was your favorite?
I enjoyed where it was pointed out that if a person has to be told they are sitting that they did not have the ability to function in life and needed to stop being so lazy (paraphrased to my own words)
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There was not a particular moment that stood out, however, the entire book provided "food for thought"
Any additional comments?
There were two places where wording cut up a bit but that could have been the wifi signal, but I am not positive.

The books does not bring any breakthrough philosophy or idea, at least not nowadays, but is very interesting and remind us of valuable lessons.
One note is that the audible does not match perfectly with the ebook. For instance, the ebook is not divided in chapters.
