Through my recent investigation of ancient literature, I have found it difficult to find a translation that I can read with ease. This version was simply amazing! I really think that this book should be taught in high schools for sure. It embodies everything important in life, and this translation makes the concepts easy to understand!
Awesome part. (It is called Avengers Age of Ultron. It proably doesn't have Loki in it.)
