    Read and Learn about Socrates

    I received this book through Goodreads. I found learning about Socrates, the Greek philosopher, very interesting. I expected the book to be a “dry” read and a challenge to get through but was wrong. I am glad I read this book. The story is Socrates writing about his life while in jail awaiting execution. Each chapter is a day closer to his execution. “This is not the first time I have awaited my end. In fact, it’s the fourth time. The difference is that the other threats to my life occurred on the battlefield.” It starts when Socrates is a child progressing through his participation in wars. His relationships with friends and family is well done. The reader gains a true insight of the life and challenges during these times. I checked the facts throughout the book and found it to be accurate. It is apparent the author has performed a great deal of research for this book. I recommend anyone read this book if historical fiction is a fave.

    Really enjoyed it!

    I have to admit. I was a little intimidated by the subject of the novel. I love historical fiction, but was I going to understand, let alone enjoy the story? The book is about Socrates after all, one of the most, if not the most well-known philosopher in the world. As I made my way through the book it quickly became apparent that this wasn’t going to be about boring philosophical theories, but was an autobiographical look into the life of a flawed and in some ways tragic human being. I enjoyed reading about what he might have seen and did. From the people he lived and worked with, to the battles he took part in, to being pronounced the wisest man in the world (I guess I would have gotten a big head too after that). I just have to say that I recommend this book for just about anyone. By the way, I won an advanced reader copy in a giveaway.
