It took me years to track down an affordable copy, but I finally have it in its original language, Latin. I recall it being rather dry in the mid-20th century Penguin Classics excerpts I had to read a quarter-century ago for Western Civ Honors, but I admit that I'm curious to see how it reads in Latin (and to see if the perceived turgidness might be due to Renaissance Latin and not just the translation or More's writing style).

Have any of you ever undertaken reading this work or another such work more well-known in translation? If so, what did you make of those works?
