Good book poorly read.

I am really not sure if I like this classic text or not because the reader made a poor job of his performance. They may just as well recite the book book in its Latin original because I doubt they would have understood less of what they read. I have rarely experienced a more disinterested and detached reading that was more off of the meaning in its intonation. Emphasis comes randomly and so do pauses. Not one of Audibles best.

Good book, dull delivery.

Interesting book for those interested in ancient philosophy or profound "common sense" knowledge. Marcus Aurelius gives a stirring series of reccomend actions on living the good life through rational means.

The performance however was boring to say the least. It felt like the reader was merely droning off passages rather than having any enthusiasm for the project.
