Annoying reader, but a great find.

I first read about half of this book several years ago and loved it. I always wanted to finish it. I've been getting into audiobooks lately, but I haven't seen an unabridged audiobook version. This podcast is an amazing find. The reader has an EXTREMELY annoying voice, but you start to get used to it after about 10 minutes. Considering the fact that this collection is both free and complete, it deserves a strong rating in spite of the irritating reading. Get about 10 minutes into it - after the intro is over and the philosophical dialog begins - and you may just start to like it. Plato used a really upbeat and colloquial way of writing his Socratic dialogs. After all, a dialog is a casual two-way conversation, and Plato writes the dialogs of Socrates in such a manner.

Much needed!!

This is entirely different from reading Jovett’s Plato, quite refreshing.

I do not understand how other commentators have disliked the narrator’s authoritative and expressive reading. To me, he has a just voice that does justice to the work, though I certainly bow to others’ far more informed opinions. However, I do have one question…
