    Great review- glad you enjoyed it. It’s a classic to be sure. I disagree with you about the annotations- I think they’re really helpful- but to each his own!

      I think that it could definitely be useful if I was reading the book for a course or something, and in some instances it was also helpful to look up specific things I didn’t get. I’m just glad that I didn’t use it the whole way through … I definitely got my “flow” once I stopped using it constantly. But definitely – different people might find it differently levels of useful! 🙂

    Thank you for the info on the annotated version. I was actually considering picking it up, but it sounds like it’s more directed towards an academic reading of the book, which wasn’t what I was looking for.

      For the most part, it is. There are definitely some that are useful to the general understanding (especially the translations when Humbert speaks in French), but most of them are more in-depth than that.
