Idiomatic, not for translation purposes
on 6 December 2015
The work itself is an interesting read, and the product came very quickly. My criticism would be on the translation itself - f you were looking to use this book for supplementary translation as part of academic/scholar work (or even if you like to translate Ancient Greek for fun!) then the English is quite far removed from the literal or stylistic original Greek. It's been made more idiomatic for the usual English reader, so it's a fun read but not particularly useful if you're looking for some translation help!
