NOT GREGORY HAYES

Some reviews said this was the Gregory Hayes translation. That's what I wanted, the contemporary, more relatable version.

Instead this is as dense as the King James Bible, full of overly-ornate "thee"s, "thou"s, and overly intricate sentences written more to make the translator feel smart than communicate the essence of Aurelius's work.

Great narration.

Would you listen to Meditations again? Why?

I would listen again because I have read this book twice before and each time it remains fresh. And while I consider Peter Batchelor an excellent narrator, this is one of those books that must be studied in print as well as heard to get the maximum benefit.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Meditations?

I was especially impressed this time around with all the parallels to Biblical and especially New Testament/Pauline writings. For a non-Christian stoic who had a most unfavorable view of Christians, the similarity to Christian writings in his Meditations are striking.

my humble opinion

difficult to follow as the story was written in Old English. would have been more enjoyable had it been recited in Modern English.

...as translated by Shakespeare

This translation is, for me, basically worthless. It must have been translated in the 17th century. There was a 9 word sentence that had the words thee, thine, thou, thy and thyself...in a 9 word sentence! Glad it was only 2 dollars I wasted. If you love olde english this might be for you.
