About the Author
BARON DE MONTESQUIEU (1689-1755) was a French jurist, satirist, and political and social philosopher during the Enlightenment. His most well-known work, The Spirit of Laws, profoundly influenced European and American political thought and was relied on by the framers of the US Constitution. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I so wish to continue listening to this MP3 audiobook, but the narrator is making it extremely difficult for me to achieve this, more than five minutes at a time make this listening project very painful.
Tragically this set contains two MP3's which means one has to listen to this terrible narrator for at least 22 and half hours. I contacted Blackstone audio with regards to this issue, advising them to listen and at least provide their opinion, but I have had no response. Guess they do not care. It would have been much better read by a man, or anybody other than Wanda.
Very disappointing. Wanda obviously can pronounce the most difficult of names easily but her narration sends one into insanity.
Regardless, this is a beautiful book and the old English print is a something that takes some time to get used to, but well worth it in the end. Seems more original and "pure" without some academic bloviating with his introduction.
