Most Helpful

Narration is painful.

What disappointed you about Wittgenstein?

It is very difficult to concentrate on the argument when the narration is this bad. Thee naray. Torsounds like ay. Com, puter.

Has Wittgenstein put you off other books in this genre?

No, but certainly books narrated by Ken Maxon.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator killed the book. Really sounded like a computer-generated voice. And a bad one at that.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Worth a read if you're interested in Wittgenstein or analytic philosophy. Definitely not worth a listen.

Any additional comments?

Listen to a sample first!
