Aristotle's surviving works were likely intended for his students and other philosophers. His prose is less than gripping for contemporary readers. This audiobook seeks to make the texts accessible by providing manageable excerpts from works such as THE HISTORY OF ANIMALS and NICOMACHEAN ETHICS. Hugh Ross's narration of Aristotle is friendly and spirited, a style that goes some way in making this work sound less like lecture notes than it might have in other hands. Even more inviting are the preambles that place each passage in context. Roy McMillan delivers these in an avuncular voice, as though he were reading to children. In the end, these introductions are more interesting than the extracts themselves. D.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
