5.0 out of 5 stars An Undisputed Classic April 27 2012
By chrisam - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I really don't know what to say to one who is unfamiliar with this book. It moves from the mythical of Romulus and Theseus to the historical of Caesar and Alexander with several enlightening figures between and after.
Along with Herodotus, Suetonius, and perhaps Livy, you must read this to have any understanding of the foundations of Western civilization
Oh, I forgot to mention these minibios of famous men are racy, adventurous, and humorous.
Get hip to the Classics

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Second Read Nov. 1 2011
By turntable - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This e-version doesn't have all the great foot notes of the Loeb Classical Library version but it is in a very convenient form and true to the original text.
The content is timeless. Should you be so inclined, you might find modern examples of matching or contrasting personalities, styles and situations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best version Feb. 15 2013
By Joe E - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This translation is hard to follow. I would recommend getting the other bite-sized versions, which are much clearer than this version. Look up "PLutarch's Lives, Volume I".

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Difficult Traslation April 1 2013
By Di72 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This particular traslation is uses very stilted language. I recall a much easier to read traslation when I had a version printed by Black Reader Service in the 70's. I think I will try and find out what that translation was and get that version. This one is nearly unreadable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Montaigne loved Plutarch and so do I Feb. 8 2013
By skeptic - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading Montaigne's essays, I wanted to see the original Plutarch for myself. He is fascinating and full of stories, some of which I had heard of before, like the Spartan boy who didn't flinch as a fox he had hidden under his cloak ate his stomach out and killed him. I'm not done with Plutarch yet, but I love what I've read and will now go and read some more. He makes the ancient world of the Greeks and Romans come alive for me, as he did for Montaigne.
