A fantastic book, which I wouldn't even know how to begin to review properly. I will just say this; the Wordsworth Classics-edition, with its endnotes by Keith Wren, heightens the experience of the book simply for the hilarity that is Wren and his at times frustrated irritability with the translator. At one point he deliciously calls the translator "all at sea" in the silliness of his word choices. Loved it. I was almost as sad to see the notes end as to see the book itself end. It was a journey of pure epic proportions.
