I am now towards the end of the book, reading it in the English Lowe-Porter translation. I see "tsinandali" here would recommend the more recent translation. I would like to hear more from him/her or anyone else concerning this topic of relative merits of the two translations. Let me note that I am a native speaker of Hebrew and loved this old-fashioned, biblical-like English.
It's helping me make decisions. I go through my books, and decide either to enter them in here and shelve them, or enter them on Amazon to sell them. (Also, I got rid of a bunch before moving, and I didn't go and unlist them from LibraryThing, so making sense out of things would have been difficult anyway.)

It's part of my necessary evolution from a crazed book-hoarder, to somebody who has a collection of books of value to work and thought.
