The Life of Alexander is one of many notable Greek figure biographies written by Plutarch in his series Parallel Lives. Alexander is arguably one of the most notable Greek figures, immortalized in stories and legends that are commonly used in mythology classes today. With the lingering feeling of discontent after the Persian invasion and the political unrest that surrounded him, his life made for an interesting topic in Plutarch’s works.
Parallel Lives is often lauded as one of the most reliable references to Alexander’s life that is currently available.

This was the worst edited audiobook I’ve ever listen to. There were several places where the editor repeated what was already said with a new take.
