Any additional comments?
The narrator was so flat that it was impossible for me to listen to the dense text and hear anything other than a wall of words. I can't really comment on the content because after a single chapter I had to shut it off or fall asleep while driving.

“My kingdom for a horse,” is just one of the many familiar motifs that come shining through this volume of selected essays. Very disparate and, it must be said, of varying interest, the quality of the writing and translations are always excellent. de Montaigne informs so much of what is now English literature and the style and type of what we now know as ‘non-fiction’ literature, it is really good to go back to the very basics of this genre. A really enjoyable read and not just for the occasional brilliant insights and familiar flashes that illuminate the pages.
