    “A faithful translation is rare; a translation which preserves intact the original text is very rare; a perfect translation of Montaigne appears impossible. Yet Donald Frame has realized this feat. One does not seem to be reading a translation, so smooth and easy is the style; at each moment, one seems to be listening to Montaigne himself - the freshness of his ideas, the unexpected choice of words. Frame has kept everything.” (Andre Maurois, The New York Times Book Review)

    andrew says: "A lifetime companion"
    "A conversation with a genius!"

    Story
    Where does The Complete Essays of Montaigne rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As much as I have enjoyed so many audible titles, this is by far the best of all. I will always look back on 2012-13 as my year with Montaigne. I have every intention of picking up a copy of this work (in this translation) as a permanent fixture on my desk.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Montaigne and I may have some philosophical and thrological disagreements on details but he is the most pleasant of companions.


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    Throughout the work, Mr Lane allowed Montaigne speak through him
