The translation is pretty good. Considering that this is the first time Zonarus has been translated into English it makes sense that the author would go for accuracy over style which makes the book rather hard to read. Another annoying thing is that all the footnotes are placed at the end of each chapter. While opinion is divided on whether footnotes should go at the bottom of the page or all together at the end I consider it essential for original sources at least to have the footnotes at the bottom. These footnotes inform the reader of the other information available on events and the accuracy of the author. It is very important that you read the footnotes thoroughly. This makes it extremely irritating to keep having to flip between the front and back of the book. This is an unfortunate error given the otherwise excellent quality of the book. Considering the rarity of the subject matter it is absolutely worth getting your hands on if you have any interest in the period.
