What books do you prefer reading? Those which are written in their original language, even if it's not your mothertongue, or those which have been translated to your native language? Why?
I prefer the originals, because only that way you can fully understand the writing style of the author, the vocabulary he/she had, the way sentences were arranged,... But if my language level doesn't allow me to read and understand the original, then I'd go to the translated version, knowing it won't be the same but something close.
What about you?
