Difficult to follow. Although the original is approaching 90 years old. Please take that into account when purchasing this book. I recommend brushing up on your European history in the early 20th century before tackling this novel. I rate myself an amateur historian and I had some difficulty keeping up with some of the lunatic ranting's. I feel that had I known more about the period in Europe from 1900-1930, I may have taken more from this book. The translation did explain many of the questionable names and events. This helped greatly. When I finished, I wanted to immediately go out and purchase a book covering the early period in Hitler's life.
Adolf Hitler could have died and never written this mess. Michael Ford did a wonderful job in his translation. Outstanding!
James Smith was great. He added personality to the translation as if he were the madman himself.
Definitely so. Brush up on your European history in the early 20th century before hand though.
