Reviews - What do customers think about Wheelock's Latin Reader, 2e: Selections from Latin Literature (The Wheelock's Latin series)?

Extremely friendly  May 25, 2008
Very helpful notes, include information as well as glossing rare terms, but leaves it up to the reader to decide which meaning to use, which I found lead to a better understanding of the texts on my part than if it just gave a suggested meaning.

Using this book for a graduate level class in Roman Philology, an amazing text, recommended to students and teachers alike
Another Great one  Nov 3, 2007
There is the text and a workbook. This is the "reader" that teaches the student Roman history, cultural Latin usage and proper, classical syntax. This is a true compliment to the other two parts of the student-teacher set. The whole set, text, workbook and reader are very competitively priced for the system, student or teacher. A good buy!
A Bit flawed  Jun 23, 2007
This is a genuine Latin reader. However, it is extremely difficult to use. After completing the Wheelock course, you cannot read Latin. You can translate it. Plunging yourself into Cicero's Varrine Orations is not a good way to make the transition to real Latin. There is too much of a gap here. Furthermore, the side notes, which include some vocabulry, omit macrons for NO REASON. I understand why the actual text does, but the fact that the side notes omit vocabulary makes absolutely NO SENSE. Instead, you have to look it up at the book's end, which is annoying.
This is for use AFTER Wheelock's Latin  Mar 11, 2007
I will revise this review after I read the book, but please note that this is meant to be used AFTER Wheelock's Latin, not simultaneously with it. For simultaneous use, see 38 Latin Stories Designed to Accompany Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin.
Great Book  Jan 13, 2007
Excellent for those of you hoping to be able to read the Latin Classics. My son is using this as an optional reader, but there is a whole curriculum with Wheelock.
