Unabridged!

Narrative did not give any remarks or explanation. One has to fill in some blanks to make sense of the scenario.

This is an outstanding book.

This book will teach you a lot about life; from one of the most outstanding masters of Western philosophy you will see and learn that there were more morals and ethics in those centuries that you will find now.

Thought provoking

The narrator has a subtle and calming voice, a good supplement to a book or Kindle version.
