it was amazing

Do not read the Penguin classics publication. Instead, opt for the translation by Bloom. It holds a much truer rendering of the greek.
Possibly the most misunderstood, and rightly so, work ever read. Plato literally tells the reader how they will read it and that they will misunderstand, yet, nearly everyone reads and understands this work in that very way.

Other than that, I am speechless.
