Though, the book within a book thing is nothing original The Solitaire Mystery and Pale Fire being other examples of this sort of storybut the story is very well thought out and, I thought, executed well.

Anyway, the plot seemed interesting enough and I felt like reading, so I read on.
The realization that nothing is what as it seems is crashing them. Translation became the vehicle for solving the crime at the center of the story and for illuminating the unsolved enigmas brought about by Plato’s dangerous ideas.
