Loved it as a philosophy student.
Second time round felt Plato sets up weak opponents for Socrates.

This dialogue is a great one to read when you've got nothing better to do, though it may be a little boring up until the conclusion. It concerns a discussion between the soon-to-be-executed Socrates and his friend Crito, over whether or not he should flee the country with his family. At first, the arguement made by Socrates for staying in prison is flimsy at best, but in a true socratic manner, the final point is indisputable. Read it if you want a lesson on arguement, but I wouldn't recommend it for entertainment unless you enjoy philosophy.
