Some people will be reading the book in the original German, and others will be reading an English translation. There are two English-language translations of the book. I am linking to the more recent English translation (by Breon Mitchell), although you can read the earlier one (by Ralph Manheim) if you prefer. We always have fun comparing the language of different translations. :)

I think the movie preview answers a lot of questions, at least by showing one interpretation of the book.
