Classical and everlasting

Aristotles writing for me is a bit dry compared to Plato’s.
Nevertheless no wonder that is book has been a dominant effluence upon the western Ethical philosophy.

The reader can easily follow the development of the Ancient mind from Socrates’s Virtues and Ethical argument in Republic and Meno.
Aristotle has a more grounded thoughts and much deeper investigation on Virtues, Happiness, Friendships and ethics in General.
Which would make this book a masterpiece.
But for myself, i prefer Plato’s way to reciting the dialogues and writing method, which made his books more like a story, and less like a study text.
