After having read this book, I'm not sure if the reader gets a fair impression of Casanova's life. The account is largely stories his amorous escapades. And this might have been enough, if we hadn't been in anticipation of stories of an adventurer and Renaissance man (spy, economist, etc.). I advise those who would avoid the 12-volume autobiography would be better advised to pursue another translation. Ignoring the content, I give two positive notes on the book. I enjoyed the writing style, and was pleased by the notes and footnotes. On the whole, this translation is unsuitable for serious readers, but appropriate as a casual read.
