Is good. Grossman is fabulous, bringing a contemporary feel to the translation without sacrificing the period (ie, she's not modernizing the text by any means, but creating a modern translation...).
This book actually made the top ten list I did a couple of weeks ago for one of the newspapers for which I write...
