A wonderful tale of a young man’s coming of age, Zorba the Greek has been a classic of world literature since it was first translated into English in 1952 and made into an unforgettable movie with Anthony Quinn. 

Zorba, an irrepressible, earthy hedonist, sweeps his young disciple along as he wines, dines, and loves his way through a life dedicated to fulfilling his copious appetites. Zorba is irresistible in this charming audio production by veteran narrator George Guidall.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Neil Fitton | 1/24/2014

    " Zorba should be read as a fairytale, in the style of Hesse's 'Narcissus and Goldmund'; it contains events that are somewhat implausible. Read as such, it's a classic tale of the dichomy between the Dionsysian path of women and wine and merriment or that of scholarship and study and the quiet life of withdrawal. Accusations of chauvanism seem to ignore the necessity of women. It's a wonderful book. "

    " Great book... I was confused at the starting but kept myself reading it because Tim Ferisss had recommended it. Must read. "

    " I think this is my fourth reading. It's timeless and always holds something new for me. It's such a good perspective when things get serious. "

    " I think many will use words like "sexist" or "irreverent" to describe this book. I know those thoughts came to mind at times as I plowed through the story. But Zorba is too much for this story. He cannot be contained in these pages. Dance, Zorba! Eat! And continue to spout your unconventional ideas! You speak with the voice of God. "
