The Republic [Plato]

Republic - Plato, Benjamin Jowett, Elizabeth Watson Scharffenberger

I'm strangely amazed that I finished this book today. I wasn't sure that I would.

I've been listening to this audio book for a week. Now that I'm done with it, I don't really know what to say in my review. Although I have several pages of notes on various parts of this book, I think I'm going to do an overall impression of it rather than a breakdown of it.

I enjoyed it. I'll admit that I got lost a few times, although that could be due to getting sidetracked from the audiobook instead of a true lack of understanding.

The whole book was about justice. I get that, but I'm not completely sure I agree. While justice does seem to be a reoccurring theme in this book, I'm not sure that it was the main focus of the book. There are too many other things in this book for it to just have one theme. I think my brain might still be fried over this book.

There was a point were I thought I was in a government class instead of listening to an audiobook.
