I found the old style of the language a little difficult to get to grips with. The sentences were, to my modern ear, over long and complex, but this was the style at the time. The translator has enabled this to be accessible today and it's certainly a good read.
The translation has been sensitively done, with the result that the story flows really well.
That is the fault of the publisher and maybe Lawston. The story, or rather account, is of course amazing, it's for that reason it even gets 4 stars. Casanova's account is full of gripping moments and a true tale of daring and desperation. At times you may find yourself wondering if such things even happened as he says they did. The writing is of course very flowery which can be a bit hard to decipher sometimes but it never really held back my enjoyment of it, what more would you expect from Casanova?
