This novel is a masterpiece and the translation is outstanding. Its premise--the conflict between Nature and Civilization (today we would say "technology")--could have easily turned it into a schematic or dogmatic book. Instead, this is a captivating novel written in a sophisticated style. And for those fascinated with technology (but not necessarily enslaved by it), a very useful read.
