I think the publishers did a good job of glossing the books and providing notes and summaries of the stories. It was a little difficult to read at first, but I got easier after awhile. My class started reading this toward the end of our second year of Latin.

Although I found Jones' commentary somewhat despicable - he seems like a horrid old man - his notes were quite helpful, making Ovid enjoyable rather than a terrible slog through vocabulary and syntax.
