The writing is, of course, splendid, and the stories timeless. Young people need to read older stories like these to discover that not all entertainment needs to be hyper-paced hyperaction. I'll give it 4 stars based on carelessness in the production of this e-version: the Table of Contents is not linked to the stories, so finding a specific story is awkward. (The best way is to Search for a portion of the title.) I'm basing this critique on the Kindle (.azw) version.
This translation leaves out all French accents, so it isn't really French. This needs to be fixed.
This book is reported as being in English. Only the introduction is in English; Cicero's text is in Latin.
